I am a 3rd year D.O. student and have a question regarding my last rotation of third year. I am pursing orthopedic surgery and my schedule for third year ends like this: ortho, ortho, elective (haven't picked which specialty will be my last rotation yet) The last elective rotation ends 5/29 and 4th year (auditions in ortho) start 6/29ish, meaning I would have approximately a month to study for Level 2/Step 2/COMLEX PE once the elective ended. I have two questions: Should that last elective slot be ortho again (giving me 3 ortho rotations in a row) or something else easier (and not interested in) to give me more time to focus on boards during that last rotation? If my elective is radiology, for example, I would have more time during the last rotation to study for boards, however I am not sure if I should take another ortho rotation or not. Any suggestions?
