Hi everyone, I'm really interested in eventually practicing somewhere on the west coast, to be close to my family. I'm thinking especially of the Seattle area. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows if it's difficult to set up rotations in Washington state, or even in northern California or Oregon. I've heard that it's best to try and do rotations in hospitals where you'd eventually like a residency position, so this is what I'm thinking about trying to do. I've noticed, however, from the match lists I've seen, that the number of DO's ending up in these areas is very small. Is this because people just don't want to practice there (want to return home to other states) or is it because it's hard for DO's to find positions there? I'd appreciate any thoughts at all on this. Thanks!
