I'm wondering how many people did surgery/medicine first or in the beginning or third year versus towards the end and how they felt about the order in which they did the rotations? We have a bunch of different options in terms of order but basically the way I see is, surgery/medicine in the beginning versus doing obgyn/peds in the beginning versus towards the end. i have heard to many mixed things about this and am wondering what peoples experiences are? In some sense it may be good to start out with meds/surgery to form a foundation for everything else but then at the same time, I will be taking the hardest shelf exams first. At the same time, maybe its good to start out with less demanding rotations and working up to it? Who knows Any advice on how to do this?
