Hey peeps,
How's everyone doing? I just need some advice on how to schedule 4th year ER rotations at competitive places in Cali for instance. Most medical schools reserve their spots for their own students first. I cannot start applying for these electives until June of this year. Besides crossing my fingers and being patient, is there any way I can get early confirmation for these ER electives? PS I really want to go to USC. Thanks!!

:horns:

Attending Physician
Find an attending at your place that knows an attending at the place you want to go. Ask them to make a call. That's should get you ahead of the game. Just keep in mind that you better work your ass off if you go there or you'll have an unhappy attending.

Hey guys,
Thanks for all the tips. Now one more question: since I am planning on going into ER, does it matter where I do my 4th year non-ER rotations? For my fourth year, I am planning on staying with my brother in Long Beach. There's a small hospital (130 beds) there that offers many 4th year rotations. I plan on doing like 5 rotations there. Is that too many? I am going to do: Radiology, Urology, Orthopedics, FP, ICU. Do I need to do these at those big "brand name" instutions? I am trying to maintain a budget but do not want to sacrifice the quality of education. (I am over 200k in the hole.) :eek: Please let me know what you all think! :clap:
