Okay guys, I've tried to do some plotting which schedule I want to take for clinical rotations, but it's making my head hurt and we have to select our choices starting tomorrow. Without going into a lot of detail, this is what we have to take: VMS 6400 Food Animal Medicine and Surgery I (6) VMS 6410 Small Animal Medicine I (6) VMS 6420 Equine Medicine and Surgery I (6) VMS 6430 Small Animal Surgery I (6) VMS 6441 Clinical Radiology I (3) VMS 6442 Clinical Anesthesiology I (3) VMS 6450 Theriogenology I (2) VMS 6460 Clinical Ophthalmology I (2) VPB 6647 Diagnostic Pathology and Special Species Medicine I (8) VMS 6490 Small Animal Specialty Medicine I (oncology) (2) We also get three "flex" or free blocks to add in electives. I'm interested in predominantly small animal mixed practice (like 70% small animal, 10% each of exotics, equine, and food animal) and a good chance of applying for a nutrition residency in the future. So...any general advice on what order to take things? I've heard a few things, like stay out of pathology in the summer if possible and small animal surgery has a LOT of on call, so getting that out of the way early may be good.
