APB to anyone going to the above schools: What are the break schedules like, i.e., longer breaks vs. very short or nearly nonexistant breaks? What clinical rotations are available, besides OPTI rotations? For instance I "hear" that at some schools you can set up your own 3rd/4th year rotations...can that be in any city you can find to set them up at? If so, what logistics are involved in setting that up? Also, I know UHS offers more/different rotation sites than are listed in OPTI, do any of the above schools have other sites as well? If so, are any of them even AROUND or near Kansas City, like say Wichita, Springfield, etc.? I really appreciate any assistance....I need to apply to some other schools but if I leave KC my grown children will not be coming with me and I want to at least be at a school that gives me SOME possibility for getting back to KC for rotations, or at least long enough breaks that I can come back to visit once in a while, if at all possible. And of course funds are limited so I can't afford to apply, travel to, etc., other schools without knowing some of these things beforehand. Thanks, mompremed.
