    Hello everyone.

    As I am close to moving into my clinical years, I was wondering if you could tell me which residency programs/rotations you think have a more county or more community feel. The reason I ask is that when I start setting up my away rotations in fourth year I would like to have one of each to round out my perspective and find the best fit for myself within the fabulous EM world (I will have already rotated through a university ED).

    I have gone to the ACEP conference for the past two years and looked through the materials provided by various programs and I know which I think might fit the bill but as I am new to this figured I would ask those of you who have been around the block and get your opinions.

    I would also love to hear your opinions regarding the advantages and disadvantages of each type of program.

    Thanks in advance everyone.

    I see your from USF. Fortunately, you dont have to go very far to get both the county and community rotations. You could go to Jacksonville for the county experience. It is a great rotation and definitely county. If you want to go a little further, try Emory in Atlanta. Orlando is community based I believe, but if you want something bigger and a little further out try Carolinas. It would help if you specified a geographic region though, as there are a many many programs which meet your specifications. If you want to go a certain area for residency, you should probably try to rotate around there. Also there has been previous threads listing county programs, just do a search for those.

    Thanks.

    I am totally open to location. My only preference is living in a place where I can buy a condo.
