SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) For current residents/attendings out there, what are your thoughts on how to schedule intern year? Better to start off with an easier rotation (anesthesia/US) or just dive in to the ED? I'll be at a new hospital, so starting off with a lighter schedule would allow time to get used to the new system, EMR, etc... I definitely don't want to start off with ICU.
