    I think some of the rotations are "electives" that you do get to pick. I'm pretty sure there are some required rotations...but maybe just the setting type is required, not the exact store itself. I wish I could be more helpful!

    At UF you first rank the first 5 geographic areas where you are willing to go.
    "out of state" is one area. Everything else is by city within the state of Florida.

    Second, rank your top 15 specialty rotations.

    Then, they will first process all the students with kids. They give these people the rotations closest to their homes. Then the computer processes the rest of us.

    If you don't like what you have, you can swap out your rotation. There are always unfilled slots or you can trade with another student. Swap lasts for one month.

    There are 2 rotations that are 8 weeks long, the other 7 rotations are 4 weeks long.

    Required rotations:
    community pharmacy (retail) 4 weeks
    ambulatory care (clinic) 8 weeks
    adult medicine (hospital) 8 weeks
    drug information (corporate) 4 weeks

    The rest are specialty elective rotations like psychiatry, surgery, anesthesiology, ICU, trauma, etc. As you can see, there is only one retail rotation with UF. If you get assigned to CVS, you can just swap out of it. I'm doing my retail rotation next month at Target.
