I am more than likely going into peds, and I am starting to work on my 4th yr schedule. I've been reading some of the previous posts about needing to do away rotations, etc, etc. I am doing one away rotation to evaluate for sure if I am set to do peds (I want to make sure its the specialty and not the program at my school that I like so well). I don't have any particular residency programs in mind that I want to go to yet, so I don't know what to do about other away rotations. I figure that if I had one or two in mind in particular, I would definately do an away there.... But since I don't have any particular in mind, I don't know whether or not its worth it to go to some random hospital for an away rotation "just to see". What's the best process to begin looking for programs, evaluating them, etc? What are the benefits of a small versus large program size? Thanks for your help!
