Hello,

I was wondering what the 3rd year rotations are like at PCOM? I have seen the list of affiliated hospitals, but I don’t really know how to judge them. I guess I’d like to know, is it realistically possible to do ALL 3rd and 4th year rotations at large hospitals or medical centers that accept residents?



Also, in general, how do PCOM's sites compare to those of CCOM and NYCOM?




Thanks for any insight, and I have looked at the PRO's and CON's page, but it didn't really address this question.

Most yes. Maybe one or two that most likely you will need to fulfill at an office (i.e. Fam/OMM) and keep in mind PCOM uses a lottery system for core rotation assignment, such that where you will train will depend on the roll of the dice.

Hard to know without attending both places.
