SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey everyone, I am hoping some of you guys can give me some advice on this issue I'm having. I had no luck in the APPE lottery and I am stuck with only one inpatient hospital rotation by the time residency interviews come around. I will have a specialty rotation at a psych hospital but it will be after interviews. I talked to a transplant/TICU pharmacist and he said that he will take me as a student (I know him personally, I work with him). However, my school has a policy to where I am not allowed to contact preceptors so they refused changes to my APPE's. I am very frustrated with this situation. Should I schedule a meeting with the APPE office and push the issue? Thanks!
