    Rotations at PMH???????

    Has anyone done a core rotation at PMH that can share their experiences? Some of us are interested in going to dominica to "give back". If someone has rotated there, please share with us which rotations you did there, your expereinces, thoughts, and overall impressions. THank you and good luck to all.

    I'd also like to hear of any experiences rotating at PMH. Which rotations are available and how difficult is it to get rotations here?

    rotations

    I know of a few people who did rotations on the island. Apparently, its not too difficult to do as they are fairly flexible concerning start dates and such. Again, this is just what I have heard. I may be going back to do my surgery and peds rotations. Apparently, in the US, they are running short of Peds; I will not be able to get an open spot until late september of 2007, and the earliest surgery is late april of 2007, unless I want to do it at wyckoff. So, I think this is the best option for me, although I really hate the island.

    Get Serious...

    There are many ways to 'give back'...going back to Dominica to do a rotation isn't one of them. I don't see how you feel you need to give anything to Dominicans...but that's your business. As far as rotations go, try and take your medical career seriously. Dominica is far behind in health care and you will be robbing yourself of information by going to such an underdeveloped country. Did you not know the nurse that worked in the Ross clinic on campus? Why she was even allowed to be in that office is beside me. She was completely incompetent in regards to health care. I had the unfortunate experience of taking a friend to Princess Margaret Hospital for an illness. It was the most ridiculous example of health care I had seen since the Ross study group lady tried to participate in a 'STAN' session. Do not go back to Dominica for any rotation. It's such a shame to read people saying things like, 'it's a great rotation....it's easy..you can leave early anytime'. I hardly consider that a good rotation. Dominica is a giant dump.....you should already know that.

    Out of line

    Vinsk, your comments are way out of line and very rude and nasty.... People like you give the school a bad name and really have no idea about life and what it offers. You have to take Dominica for what it is, a small island struggling to make itself better. I loved my experience on the island as did so many of my friends that were there, and are considering going back to live after residency for awhile. Yes the hospital in Roseau is pretty bad and probably not a good place to do core rotations like IM and surg, or even OB... But you comments regarding the nurse at the school clinic are pretty nasty and what did she do to you. She is a clinic nurse, in her twilight years... Yes, she is not the sharpest nurse you'll see, but here in the US, I have seen a lot worse work in hospitals.... People that consider Dominica a dump are so blind, its a shame..... My advice to those people considering going back to Dominica for rotations, only do electives, NO CORES... If you work hard enough here in the states regarding scheduling stuff, you can get everything you want, pretty much back to back.... I wanted to do some electives in Dominica, but time was an issue and so is the match/interviews/rank, etc... Good luck all!

    It's getting HOT in here..

    MEEeeoww.. okay enoug on that.

    ANYWAYS --> there are always options even if your advisor(s) tell you differently... NY clinical sites do have alot of limits to how many students can take and you do unfortunately have to wait for these sites other then Wyckoff for surgery (Peds is actually a good program at Wyckoff and most likely, you'll have to wait there too in getting a spot) -- ANYWAYS, last resort is Chicago hospitals -- YES -- Chicago -- as much as your advisor will say it's competitive to get in, it's acutally not. For chicago rotations, you have to call the hospitals medical director yourself and set up those rotations with him/her and then notify your advisor (you can't go through your advisor first to get the spots cause they will tell you it's full which is always not true)... hopes this helps.

    ok.. no cat fights please

    You will be happy and thankful doing pediatrics with Dr. Mac, OBGYN, and as well as surgery. the experience is one that you won't receive in the Us till such time when you will have become an MD.
