I have recently transferred to St George's University after completing my second year at a stateside osteopathic medical program and had a question about completing my rotations. I have just begun my first rotation in a large Northeastern city and have been trying to get a straight answer from my colleagues regarding the potential benefit (or disadvantage) that comes from completing rotations at several different hospitals. SGU allows students the choice of staying at one hospital (in some cases) for all clincal rotations, or moving around between different hospitals (sometimes in different states) for rotations. Personally, I would prefer to stay where I am (happens to be my home state), but there seems to be certain hospitals that are better for some rotations than others. I was wondering if program directors take any notice as to whether all of the rotations were completed at the same site and if this influences their decisions in selecting residents. Like I said, I have asked some of my cohorts but got conflicting responses.
