Hey all. I'm a MS3 and a big "plan ahead" kind of person. I'm taking a break from reading and have a few questions about electives in med school and whether and how they'll impact my application for heme/onc fellowship later on. I realize I still have a long way to go, but I'm just trying to keep on top of how things are going for fellowship match so I'm not stuck with any regrets. I like my home institution, at least for internal med. For personal and financial reasons, doing lots of away rotations is not really a great idea for me. Will it look strange if I'm a "homebody," so to speak? Would doing an away elective as a MS4 even really help my chances for a fellowship at that institution later on? As far as electives go, I could easily fill my time with all of the heme and onc electives we offer here. If it comes down to taking "advanced" oncology vs something like palliative care or diagnotic radiology, what should I do? I like being multi-faceted and learning new skills, but will it look strange if I don't take the "advanced" course? Thanks for the advice and help!
