    Psych Rotation

    Advertisements



    Hey everybody,

    I was just wondering if anybody out there from SC has completed their Psych rotation yet? If so, where did you do it and what did you think about it. I am thinking about going into psych and wanted to know how people liked their rotation.

    Thanks,

    Kurt

    hey

    best place for u to get answers is the stchris subnet if u are a stchris student... it has reviews of some of our psych rotations.

    and i feel psych is pretty interesting... its one of the less stressful and more fulfilling fields if u value pt. interaction but can dissociate urself easily from pt. problems after office hrs...

    Psych rotation

    Dr. in Chicago through Michael Reese. Very nice doctor. Allows a lot of freedom as far as how much you want to learn/participate. PM me for more info.

    Are you starting clinicals in Sept? If not wait. Our sites change every so often and you will be 5 semesters from clinicals from 1st!
    Some of our sites are great! Wait till Sept.
    Cheers Bill.

    psych

    How hard is it to match into Psych? I see two students on the SCCM website that matched.

    look at the open spots. psych is the easiest to match into since only about 50% fill up. if you aren't a total putz you will have your choice of spot.

    Not quite. It is a bit more competitive at 63.6% US fill rate this last match (see NRMP datatables). Top spots (Cornell, Harvard, etc.) OTOH are very competitive.

    that still leaves about 40% open vs. 70-90% for others that is why i said about 50% it goes up and down a bit but that is still wide open.....not many want psych, i know i don't....i have my own issues to deal with let alone everyone else...
