Some schools allow rotation sites to pay you. Even at those schools just a handful of sites pay. Some schools will tell you who pays, others don't tell you until after you have selected sites.

Wow, I've never heard of that! That would certainly be a pleasant surprise if someone wanted to pay me. :thumbup:

University of Washington does. But, after someone lined up all paid rotations a couple of years ago, they stopped telling students which ones pay pre-selection. Now, the only way to know which of their rotations pay is to talk to students from previous years, or to arrange one through your current employer if they pay.

Our school forbids any type of payment. We also have to pay for three semesters instead of just two, so that's an extra $9000 or so for that year. Still, I'm looking forward to it because I can do all of my rotations in the city where I live instead of in the city where my school is.

Rotations. A full year of kissing ass for a living....oh, wait, no, paying to kiss ass, sorry.

Make it 18 months of kissing ass for me.

My school wants to have us do more rotations that any school in the entire country. We start the advanced rotations on Jan 08 and we won't graduate t'ill May 09. At first, the idea sounded really good ..but now the idea of going that long without a substancial income..:mad:

This is how ISU does it, too. What's nice is that the rotation sites can be all over - Boise, Pocatello, Reno, plus some other small towns in Idaho. It gives the students that commute a chance to live at home, or in my case, to live with their SO.

Yep, my husband and I are already sick of the half-time commuting/half-time staying at school routine. Come on, fourth year!

That sucks. I thought we had it bad with 11 months of rotations. How many years is your school? We had the summers off between years 1 & 2 and 2 & 3. If we added another 7 months of rotations, then it would be 4 years of straight school without any breaks! Are they trying to kill you?

Then i believe they are given the real meaning to "four year pharmacy curriculum"
