    Hey, all!

    I was wondering if any non-harvard students have done electives away at Harvard -- and if you've done your rotation at Brigham and Women's, all the better! I'm interested in chatting with *anyone* who has done this, or is a current Harvard student with some insight on how the visiting students are treated, differences in expectation (if any), etc. Post here or email me privately at djanaba at mindless dot com. Thank you!!!

    Any input is welcome and will be a great help! :)

    I'm a current MS III at Harvard. If you choose to do a neuro elective here, I'd recommend avoiding BIDMC if you can. It is known for being disorganized with malignant people from residents to those in charge of the clerkship and residency. Personal experience agrees with this assessment.

    Is this just for Neuro or all the electives the offer?

    Does anyone know about the surgical intensive care units at Brigham? Or anything about their trauma and burns management?

    Cheers

    Hi there, I am an international student doing an elective at Brigham & Women's hospital later this year. Do you know much about the surgical intensive care units, trauma and burn management at the hospital? Any advice or information about the Brigham and your time in Boston would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Dear all,

    I have a question regarding Harvard application. My school is not included in their list, even though I e-mail them to add my school to the list (this is what their website told me to do) they reject to do that by just saying we are unable to do that right now. Have you guys encountered this kind of problem? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks!
