    for cores it doesn't matter some start in ob some surgery others in IM..i started with psych. the only time it plays a role is for electives if you have a gap in between because most electives want you to have IM or surgery done

    Please tell which electives require surgery as pre-req. Is this a requirement rule across the board, or is it site-dependent?
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    it can be site dependant but usually it is any sub-I's in whatever field you are looking at that want core done.

    Surgery-trauma, vascular, cardiothoracic, ortho, neurosurg etc. need core
    OB-maternal fetal, high risk, onco, orogyn need core
    IM-cardiology, GI, nephro, infectious disease, nephro etc.
    Peds-neotology, peds ICU, peds ER

    I only have experience with 3 sites and you could only do neuro, FP, rads without cores. however if you had approval from the dept people had done nephro, infectious disease, and path without respective cores so it can be site dependant and more specifically who you talk to. even as a lowly 4th year med student i saw how lost and needy 3rd years were---freaking out about presenting then presenting a 10 minute case for a cold...hehe i allways wondered if i was that annoying..the answer is yes BTW, and i can imagine a fellow or attending just not wanting to deal with it if they don't have to on a busy service.

    plus on a core you aren't expected to know much but on a sub-I you will be grilled more and knowing the core basics gives you time to learn the most important things a med student needs:

    1)how to do the disappearing med student trick without anyone noticing

    2)what kind of pastry your attending likes. memory is connected to smell and taste so he/she may never be able to remember you gave the right answer 3 weeks ago during rounds but when filling out your eval, your name will set off a pavlovian response automatically putting you in their good graces

    3)learn how to tell the future during rounds. learn to write down the patients condition in each room so that as you are walking to each room you can look stuff up on your palm pilot making you look like you actually know something. this is trickier than it sounds because you have to fall back enough that your fellow med students don't notice you looking stuff up but not far enough to be left out of the elevator around the corner

    4)how to control yourself at liver rounds. while on liver rounds, aka wet rounds, learn how much water to drink in between shots to be the last one drunk..this way it is you who ends up in posession of the money shots to trade for favorable grades...hehehe

    5) having already bruised up your share of patients with arterial line attempts in cores you don't get nervous and freak out anytime you gotta do something. this leaves you plenty of time to study and work on 1 through 4 which are way more important
