    Psychiatry-St. johns far rockaway- I know this will be a point of contention for some, but actually, I found this to be a good experience. At the time the rotation was divided into 3 weeks in one area and 3 weeks in another. I was lucky enough to get the two best areas, inpatient and outpatient psych. Both attendings were excellent and I learned a bunch. However, even at the time I knew that depending what areas you were assigned to, this could be a very variable rotation as far as learning.

    Hi, can anyone confirm that St. John is ACGME accredited for Psychiatry? Having a hard time finding the info on this. Thanks.

    Ps. if you do think that it is ACGME accredited for Psychiatry, please indicate the source.

    Yup, St. John's is ACGME for psych and int. med. (DO for all else). Look on FREIDA. SUNY residents rotate there.

    Can anyone who has done a special at St. John's explain how this was done. Did you just ask the clinical coordinator and they set up everything else for you? Can specials still be done at this site? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it true that for the psych rotation they require you to do 3 weeks in Far Rockaway, and 3 weeks at a site in Long Island? Anyone can share their experiences?

    I did do a "special" for the internal medicine core here but I don't know if Ross is still doing specials. I just called my clinical coordinator once I set up my Step 1 date.

    Doing IM core here was a great way to start off my clinicals. It's not that great of a hospital but when I was there, I was able to do a lot of procedures (ABG, NG tubes, blood draws, etc.) and learned a lot from two of the attendings. Students work under a resident or intern but for the most part are able to see patients on their own, write the note, and followed them from admission to discharge. Residents were really nice for the most part and of course some taught more than others. Workload was reasonable. Lots of teaching... there was teaching in some form or another daily whether it was morning report, floor rounds, the daily noon conferences, afternoon lectures twice a week, morning lecture once a week, and radiology rounds once a week. All the lectures actually made for a hectic work day. I was usually there for about 9 to 10 hours a day. Overnight call was once a week. The only down side I thought was the lack of variety of patients since many of them came from nursing homes. However, I was fortunate to do my family medicine rotation (3 weeks inpatient, 3 weeks outpatient) at an unoppopsed program which I thought supplemented my IM experience quite well.

    Had a friend who did it there and said it was awesome- great teaching and you get to do everything. Hours were looong and he was chronically fatigued for 6 weeks but he came out knowing everything and more a student should know about OB-GYN. Only drawback is that its a DO rotation, which may or not matter to you. But as far as learning its a great rotation.
