    Wyckoff electives

    Advertisements



    how much are the electives at Wyckoff? I am trying to decide if I should do the Infectious diseases elective there starting January 5th. I either have a choice to do the elective and pay all that money for elective fee or take a month off and waste 4 weeks out of the allotted 11 weeks i have to make it to the 2010 match. any advice greatly appreciated!

    Its 210 bucks a week (345 but smu pays 135) so 840 total for 4 weeks. I wouldnt waste the 4 weeks. Take the elective its not very demanding and the cases u see are interesting.This is assuming you arent really tight for cash.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    Depends on who you are working with. I was with Dr. V the director. He's very laid back it starts at 10 and only goes for a few hours a day. I am not sure how it is with Dr. J the other attending. I heard he is more demanding but i don't know for sure.

    I would stay as far away from wyckoff hospital as possible for clinical rotations.The Head over there JR is a disturbed man. JR is not a physician nor does he have a graduate dgree. This is a shday place the new CEO is the CEO of spartan, the head of the surgery dept own spartan. Stay away from wyckoff. Tell your clinical advisors

    i took infectious disease at wyckoff. from my experience, sometimes your days can be short, sometimes long. dr. v is pretty chill and dr. j is ok too. the day really depends on the number of patients that needs to be seen or followed up and also on the resident (some residents may want you to stay longer to help out with the consultations while others could care less). dr. v usually starts at 10am, then you get a lunch break, then maybe a lecture if there's time, and then round on his patients, lasting until 3ish pm (sometimes until 5pm). with dr. j we would show up around 11am and leave around 5ish pm, but certain days he'll excuse us only after 1-2 hrs, which ain't so bad! dr. v likes to teach, but dr. j usually keeps to himself, so you have to ask him questions. overall, not a bad rotation.
