    I think you have to do 1 month in the 3rd year and 1 month in the 4th year at a minimum. It's quite possible to end up doing much more than that which is not a good idea for several reasons. Awful place to get to depending on where you live. Too many students and residents and not enough patients.

    Is it a common problem for CCOM that the rotations are crowded and done in outlying hospitals. Just wondering how much is done in the larger hospitals in the city.

    Miamidoc, I have a great e-mail sent to me by a fourth year at CCOM outlining all the hospitals he roated through and where he did each rotation. its kinda long, but i can e-mail it to you if you want. let me know. Actually, having strong rotations was one reason i chose CCOM. You an rotate through UIC, Cook County, Univ of Chicago, Rush, an many others. This kid who e-mailed me just did a cardio rotation at Univ of Chicago.
