I read about this in a few places, but they simply say "make sure you get in an audition rotation" without saying what one is.

Thanks

Rotating through a hospital's department where you want to match.

Ex. You go to Hopkins and you want to match into rads. You can do an away rotation at Harvard to try to get a letter of rec from a big name there and increase your chances of matching there since they have seen you in action.

Pretty much it.

You do an away rotation for two reasons:
1.) Try to get in good with a program where you want to match
2.) Get a LOR from some big name in the field
