SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm planning out my 4th yr electives. I was interested in doing some away rotations (aka AI's or sub-I's). But they are expensive (the fee for the rotation, plus travel and lodging). So I was wondering how important is it to do an away rotation and how many should I do? Also, I'm not sure what type of programs to apply to do for an away rotation. That is, should I do a general peds inpatient program? outpatient peds? or try to do some type of peds subspecialty to enhance my learning? Any advice abut doing away rotations (or applying to peds in general) will be greatly appreciated.
