    I'm sure the OMFS guys will respond to your post--they've got all of the information and usually do it in a timely manner, but you may want to contact the program directly and ask them what they have available.

    I recall that past externs have stayed in the call room there, and had use of a resident meal card for meals. I think that's where Yah-E put on 45 pounds and gained his triple chin.

    It depends on when you're coming. The summer is busy and there are often 2-3 externs, so there's not enough room for everyone to stay in the call room. There are a couple of nearby hotels :eek: that have given good rates in the past, sometimes weekly rates:

    Fairfield Dallas-Stemmons
    1575 Regal Row
    Dallas, TX
    (214) 638-6100

    Embassy Suites Market Center
    2727 N Stemmons Fwy
    Dallas, TX 75207
    (214) 630-5332

    Studioplus Dallas Market Center

    I stayed here for $21 per night (split the cost with a fellow extern). Hospital rate, decent rooms, good service, free continental breakfast every morning, 5 minutes from the hospital...overall a pleasant stay. I think this is the cheapest place from the referral list they give you. Call the secretary and see which other extern/s are working with you and get their contact info so you can coordinate and save some $$$.

    Free? I thought you told me that's what we had to do if we wanted breakfast tickets.

    BTW, don't scare away the potential man *****...I mean extern. Wait until he gets there, then let him have it:laugh:
