    Easy answer.

    St. Mary's in Waterbury, CT. The hospital is in Waterbury, CT, just 20 minutes from New Haven (where Yale is). St. Mary's is a Yale-affiliated hospital. The hospital and the staff are first-rate.

    The surgery experience was incredible. As a student I worked from 4:45 AM- about 6 PM daily with call q4. The calls were rough- only 2 or 3 hours of sleep on a "good" night. The attending and residents were great and were fully committed to teaching. Multiple lectures daily. As a student I scrubbed in every day. Some days I would do a few lap choles, maybe a few hernia repairs. Other days I might assist with a six-hour Whipple or gastric bypass.

    This rotation was brutal, but looking back it was well worth it. Medicine is also available here to Rossies. There simply is no better place to do surgery and medicine than St. Mary's.

    Rochester General Hospital.

    -No scut work
    -Don't have to be there at 4-6am to pre-round.
    -You start at 7-8am.
    -You get to scrub-in everyday
    -You're often done by 3-4pm
    -No call
    -Only 3 H&P's for the 3 months
    -Only 1 presentation
    -No weekends
    -Extremely flexible, you basically scrub in the cases that you want to, and EVERYONE here is extremely friendy and willing to teach. A great teaching hospital.
    -Did i mention NO CALLS!!!

    -You go to conferences with University of Rochester Med students once a week (one of the top 10 med schools in the country).
    -Keep in mind that the Rochester U. med school is headed by Dr. Schwartz...yup the same guy who wrote THE infamous Surgery textbook (kinda like Robbin's for Pathology!)
    So this program and the name have a GREAT reputation.

    -I'm loving this program because it's very flexible. No one will force you to scrub in on your 50th Lab Chole...if there's something more interesting going on, you can go scrub-in on that. If there's a particular specialty you're interested in, they'll let you go follow those surgeons. Everyone is super-friendly.

    -Probably the best part is that there are no residents/interns working in YOUR group. You work directly with the surgeons. This is great for those like me that want to go into surgery, because this way the surgeons can really get to you know, and work directly with you.

    To make things even better...there's only 3 students at a time. 1 from Ross, and 2 from Saba. That's 3 students for 10-20 surgeons that you work directly with. This means that most of their teaching is directly 1-on-1. It simply doesn't get any better.

    Huron Hospital. Very good surgery rotation. A lot of the residents are from carribean schools so they have "empathy" for us and "know how we're treated" as one resident put it. They definitely try to teach in their busy schedule. You get to scrub in to every case, and the residents let you do a lot in the O.R. They let me do a good part of most of the surgeries I was in. Its a level II trauma center and you see a lot of trauma. You suture any lacerations on incomming trauma patients.
    Definitely one of the best rotations Ross has.
