    Any experience at St. Vincent's

    I was wondering if anyone has completed rotations at St. Vincent's, Ct.
    How are the surgery and medicine rotations held?
    Do you get good exposure?
    How is the faculty? and calls?
    Housing?
    Any information will be appreciated.

    im from Ct and AUC so we dont use St V's.....but i will tell you do not live in that area.....thats where the house on lindley street was. my parents grew up not far from there when that girl was possessed and throwing refrigerators without touching them!

    no, in all seriousness, its a very dangerous area.....my grandparents are always treated at st v's and we are very cautious as to where we even park our car.....

    St. Vincent

    i did my surgery rotation in St. V earlier this year and it was awesome. the area is much better than most of the rotations set up in NY areas.
    i was surprised that i was the only ROSS student and rest of them were from NY medical college. but overall i would highly recommend this rotation to anyone who wants to get into surgery, the residents are nice and very supportive. the staff is just awesome. about the housing issue, the hospital provides you the housing, i paid 550$ and i was renting a room in a house not even a minute away from the hospital. parking is not a issue either and its quite safe as long as you are around the hospital area.
    overall, i would highly recommend this rotation to anybody and i never had any trouble while i was there doing my surgery rotation.

    yeah its the hospital in bridgeport, CT. usually the hospital has a list of available apartments for medical students and residents. some are available for short term leases and the lease expires as you finish your rotation.
    u can also find your own housing from on-line and make arrangments. i went through the hospital housing list so short term stay was not an issue for me.

    do not live in bridgeport, it is not a very safe area. Trumbull is a neighboring town and has some pretty decent apartments, try looking there.

    can anyone comment on the short term housing the hospital offers? Does it have internet connections available?

    Food? Parking? Etc...

    St. Vincent's CT

    the hospital has wireless internet connections all over. there is a library with computers so u can check your e-mail or do research during your breaks. the library is open from 8-5.
    the hours are usuall as u would expect in any surgery rotation, u start around 6, do quick rounds for like 30 minutes and than do sign outs and than go to your daily scheduled procedures. u can sign up for one procedure if u like or 4. there are about 25-30 procedures daily so you can pick as many as u want. we usually did evening sign outs around 5.30 or 6 so you are pretty much there for full 12 hours a day. no weekend unless you are on-call.
    the hospital provides meal tickets for NY medical college students for free and also housing is free for them too since their school pay the hospital for that. for ROSS, dont' expect too much, its good enough that ROSS students will be doing a surgery rotation at a good hospital where they actually do learn something and get to see all the procedures they want. however, hospital provides u with meals on the day you are on call.
    parking is about 1.25 $ day in hospital garage across the street or you can always park on the street if you get there early and parking around hospital is fairly safe.
    housing again is different issue, if u go through hospital's housing list than u can sign for short term lease, the period of time u stay while u are doing your rotations there. there are some nice towns around bridgeport like, trumbell, fairfield, stratford, shelton. these towns are little expensive but better than bridgeport.
