    Advertisements

Can i get by without a car, I was not planning on driving since i ll be there for 6 weeks only. Is it a good rotation? Not sure what to do? Any info will help. Thanks.

    If it is the same as when I did it a couple of years ago you will absolutely need a car. The office of the attending is way out away from the city. The hospital where you round on his patients and go to lectures is a 20 minute drive from his office. So on days you go to see his patients you have to drive to the hospital and then back to his office. No real piblic transportation in that area and takinbg a cab would get real expensive. There is a thread, maybe in the clinical stuff, about this rotation. Check it out. Not a very good learning experience when I was there.

    u will also have to go to jackson park hospital to do your neonatology which is on the southside of chicago...the attending in charge of grove pediatrics is on the north side so you will definitely need a car.

    why on earth would they put you in chicago for peds (unless you requested it)? Talk to the clinical department to see if they can change it for you so you can stay in NY. I myself requested chicago, but was assigned to NY... strange how it works.

    good luck!
