    My school does not allow you to receive credit for completing the same rotation at the same institution. However, if you do the "same" rotation at a different institution, then you can get elective credit.
    As far as actually attaining the credit, my school provides the facility in which I trained with a performance evaluation at the completion of the rotation. Once it is filled out, I get my elective credit.

      How do you all get credit for audition rotations? My school does not allow me to repeat clinical electives. So... Hypothetically speaking, if I wanted to go into x specialty, how can I arrange to do x rotations at more than one location? Are all schools like this, or can most of you get credit each time you rotate at a different location?

      My school had a similar rule, but the admin office would change the title of each, so even though you know you're doing three orthopedic surgery rotations they'd do something like: orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, trauma and bone splinting.

      Not real names, but you get the picture. Talk with your admin office and they'll let you know how they handle it!
