    I just began Pediatrics Core here at St. Barnabas. I'll post experiences as the weeks go by. So far they have SMU students scheduled for 2 weeks Inpatient Ward, 2 weeks Outpatient Clinic, 1 week Peds ER and 1 week Nursery/NICU. Call is about q6, not too bad. But admissions and note writing are hell. If anyone else has experiences past or present, please post!

    Is the hospital in a nice area?

    I am the only SMU student in Peds, and the only other IMG I have met so far is a MS-4 from Ross doing electives. Every other student has been either in the Cornell PA program or in NYCOM/PCOM/LECOM - all DO students.

    It seems that so far there is very few SMU students here. It is a rather large hospital and the only Level 1 trauma center in the Bronx, so its a little disappointing not seeing more of us around. Area is so-so... not exactly the gleaming city but not super-ghetto-run-for-your-life. I have walked around at late night without a problem. Also, the residential areas east of the hospital is monitored 24-7 by police cameras so there is not one bit of shady business here since no one can even stop in the sidewalk without the Man zooming in on you.

    Today was much better than yesterday. Lots of interesting pathology comes in through here for Peds. Teaching is sketchy but if you are persistent you can learn a lot from certain attendings.

    That is the same exact thing I thought about when I started at Wyckoff. One of the residents today as a matter of fact asked me about SMU. He said he never saw a student from SMU before, and that I was the first one he actually encountered.

    St. Barnabas

    Hey people,

    St. Barnabas is not a bad place to rotate. During the three times that I rotated there (IM, Peds, Neuro), I too was the only SMU student there. For IM, I learned the most in the ICU. It was excellent. Neuro was also a great elective there: Good hours (clinic 9-12, and hospital 1 until consults were done usually 3) and good preceptors. Peds was very involved, but I learned alot as well. By the way, St. Barnabas isn't the only Level I Trauma center in the BX. They only recently became Level I. The free food there (all three meals) is also a plus.

    Update on the Pediatrics rotation

    So my Peds rotation is going along quite well so far. As I have posted before, the schedule here goes like this:
    • 2 weeks Outpatient Clinic
    • 2 weeks Inpatient Ward
    • 1 week Pediatrics ER
    • 1 week Nursery/NICU
    For a total of 6 weeks. ACGME-approved with plenty of residents running around doing their thing among the clinics, ward and NICU. Currently I am finishing up my time in the clinic and will be moving on to the ER. Since this is my first rotation, I came into it without knowing what to expect but hoping for a lot of teaching and prepared for scut. The hours on the Inpatient floor the first couple days soured me on the rotation. But four weeks into it, after serious, intense hours on the floor and wide-ranging experience in the clinic, I've come to not only love Pediatrics but rediscover my love for medicine, which I lost somewhere in Basic Science. Further, after talking to the Rossies who rotate with me and other SMU and DO students, I really cannot overstate how awesome this rotation is as compared to the experiences we have to struggle through at places like Wyckoff. All this sounds a bit dramatic, but its really true - this is a great rotation, and if you have a chance to do it here, take it. There are limited spots every term. Even if you are not going into Peds, this is a great place to learn the basics of taking care of kids (which every doctor should know anyway). A lot of the "Peds" knowledge is easily applied to other disciplines, especially the stuff you learn in the Peds ER.

    Call is once a week, and depending on where you are in your rotation you will be assigned to either the Peds ER or the floor. Both are incredibly rewarding since you get lots of patient interaction and minimal scutwork. In all cases, the attendings and residents encourage us to write in your patient's chart, sign notes, and even write orders. Since this is my first rotation, I understand that to some this work may be deemed scut, but for me it is vital to finally (finally) understanding the logistics of how the floor works. Consults are great as well: all in-hospital consults can be handled by the JMS if they feel up to it... so if I know my case(s) well enough, I can present and discuss a patient with the Radiology Dept or even some Surgical attendings. But be prepared and know your stuff, everything related to your case - the first impression pretty much dictates the respect you will get from then on from consults. However, I have never seen anyone (nurse, DO, MD or PA) verbally abuse or humiliate a med student (even in cases of extreme incompetence) - they correct you and teach whenever possible. Everyone has a different style but all attendings pimp heavily and teach very well using the cases we get. Being an urban center, lots of interesting and routine pathology comes through all the time - some things, after you see them the first time, you will never forget. The best part about this rotation is that everyone sincerely believes that students are here to learn, and if you go out of your way to participate in procedures, ask questions and write notes, the attendings and residents will teach teach teach.

    OK, so this was a particularly rambling post. But hopefully it helps someone out there who is deciding on where to start clinicals. When I get to Peds ER full-time next week I'll post another update.

    Ps

    By the way, by the end of your time in the clinic, you will eventually see every rash that has ever existed among humanity.

    Take all that you hear about Wyckoff (or any other rotation for that matter) with a grain of salt. Not all the rotations there are the same...Some people are just never happy. I'm sure some will still find fault with Harvard.
