SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Let' start a list of really good preliminary medicine or transitional programs. Please include lifestyle, call, electives (call on electives), nightfloat, teaching, etc I hear that Mercy Pittsburg is pretty good in all these respects with 5 electives, night float, and good teaching. The same goes for one in Upland, PA. I've heard mixed reports on Mayo Jacksonville, Scottsdale. Anyone have real information on these or the IU transitional year? Anyone know anything about Scripps (san Diego)? Good transitionals I've heard about include: Mercy Pittsburg Scripps San Diego Albert Einstein Upland, PA Thanks.
