So, I've been accepted to do visiting 4th year trauma rotations at both LSU-NO and Louisville. Unfortunately, they're both for the same month. And, to make matters worse, I also signed up for UT-Memphis during that same month. I'm doing a total of three aways in GS, being that the branch of my school that I'm at doesn't have residents. The other two months are set in stone already with two other schools, and my PD told me to get three spots, it's best to apply for 4 or 5. Well, I did, and now I've got to cut one, maybe two, and decide which school I should say yes to, and which to give the polite "my school has unfortunately informed me that I will not be able to attend my roation as planned, however, I'm still highy interested in your program" line. I've yet to hear back from Memphis, as of yet, but the lady did say I will either way by the end of the month. Question, as Dwight Schrute would say, what are ya'lls thoughts on LSU-NO and Louisville? Loiusville may a have a little better name, and I hear they operate early and a ton, while using the latest methods. However, I've also heard it's a tad malignant, and a tough place to train. LSU-NO is an enigma right now. I know that Charity is still a disaster, and I don't even know what hospitals are up and running, or even if the residents are all back in the city permanently. The main reason I applied to do a rotation there is that my fiance's best friend is doing her residency there, I'd have a place to stay, and Nu-awlins was a ton of fun to visit back in the day. Long story short, I have no idea on the state of the program. I'm interested in Trauma/CC, and I'm guessing the gun and knife club is still operational in the area, at the very least. Anyone else have any thoughts, especially on LSU? Thanks everyone.
