    just wanted to throw this out for y'all...

    UK has an integrated 1st year. That is, you match for all 4 years. having said that, the pm&r interns almost never see the 2,3,4s. They are at a separate institution (Cardinal Hill Rehab Hospital), except on consult months. The intern year here is definitely not cush. Best call is q4. 4 months of medicine wards. 1 month pediatric wards. 2 months neurology wards. 2 months ortho. 1 month neurosurgery. 1 month trauma. The "cushy" month is pediatric wards, which the pediatricians say is their worst month. I would go so far as to say that pm&r here has one of the worst intern years of all specialties.

    Does that mean we will be better equipped to handle rehab units? We'll see....

      I'm not saying dont come to UK. The teaching is very good. None of the rotations are terribly malignant. I'm just letting off some steam. Of course, it's just one year of hard work, followed by 3 years of "typical" pm&r hours. It just gets frustrating when internal medicine 'terns get their "reading week", or a "consult" month.
