Electives for Hem/Onc interest?

    I'm currently interested in doing IM + oncology; does anyone know which electives would help make me a well-rounded applicant? Obviously I'll do a hem/onc rotation in my 4th year but I have an elective as my 2nd 3rd year rotation so I'm wondering what I can do before I have a lot of clinical experience under my belt (psych will be my first rotation...) as well as later in 3rd year.

    Here are my ideas:

    Hospice/palliative - good as a first elective?
    Plastic surgery - i.e. breast reconstruction specialist
    Rad-onc or gyn-onc
    Cards, gastro - to be a well-rounded IM applicant?

    Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated! :biglove:
