Don't have a home hospital, or home program and I am responsible for scheduling my entire 4th year. My school is essentially unable to provide me any rotation. I live in an area where all the major hospitals are controlled by big MD medical schools and they aren't accepting students due to covid. Further, the usual non-residency program, preceptor based rotations are being cancelled as the hospital systems that the preceptor's work for are not allowing students due to covid. I've heard that our 3rd year students are having their core rotations cancelled as well.
I had scheduled a bunch of auditions back in January before this all started (most out of state). Now I'm stuck with the decision of cancelling my OOS auditions (and ruining my chances of matching) so that I can be in accordance with CORD policy, or doing online rotations-- as it is highly unlikely that I can find a replacement rotation (in any specialty) this Summer/Fall.
I'm choosing to continue to do my rotations as scheduled, as I think doing online BS will not prepare me to be a doctor in a year. I will also likely fail to match if I do not do auditions (surgical subspecialty) as I have no program. My school will not be stopping me from traveling OOS, but has cautioned me that "this doesn't look good."
