From what I remember, even numbered months are not trauma call except for isolated mandible fractures. Plenty of those to go around though. Also you can get your extraction experience up as well in the clinic. Might be some wicked cancer surgeries scheduled. It's a great externship, they'll keep you busy.

I have heard it is pretty intense maybe take a nap or drink some green tea or something before you go. ;)

How did you get you get the scoop on the externship? did you just call down there or did you find some info online? their website always has that darn "coming soon..." stuff on it.

I have sometime before I start externing, but it is nice to at least know where to look when the time comes.

I just called down there, and they emailed me the application. The lady I spoke with was extremely nice, and very helpful.
