I'm hoping to reach out for some help. I'd like to get both of my elective rotations in South Korea next year (2022--more specifically Oct-December 2022 near Bucheon, Seoul). I've got a place to call home there and it would make my future family's year. My program has been researching and reaching out to other programs but we haven't had much luck. There aren't any PAs in Korea so I will likely have to either piggyback off a medical rotation or find a physician who's willing to take me under their wing.
Does anyone have experience or know of someone who has travelled abroad for a rotation? If it was in Korea, even better!! I'd love to reach out or network with them to try and make some connections. I'm unfamiliar with so many things, even more so now that COVID complicates things (opportunities out there, visa requirements, quarantine, rotation lengths, etc.)
Any crumbs would be much appreciated. 🐁
My program allows two electives and I am not sure which ones I should choose since I am interested in 4 different electives. My question is should you pick something you might never have the chance to see again and have genuine interest in or something that will be more helpful in job searching and future practice? One option is pediatric endocrinology which I think is very interesting and will have more variety in cases, but is very specialized, thus it might not be helpful for my future job searching. On the other hand, I can choose general endocrinology, but I am afraid that I will get bored seeing mostly diabetes and thyroid cases. However, doing this rotation would help me in most future jobs since diabetes is such a common issue. Plus, a professor said that it is easier to find a job in endo compared to most other specialties. Another professor said I should only choose pediatric endocrinology as an elective unless I know 100% that I want to specialize in pediatric endocrinology. Any advice?
Hello, new clinical rotation student here! I saw the pinned 'clinical advice' forum was from 2005 so I wanted to start one fresh.
I would love if people could drop their best advice (ex. advice per specialty/ rotation, comfortable business professional shoes, pocket books to get, EOR advice, skills to definitely have perfected, how to make a good lasting impression, etc). Any and all advice you think of is appreciated! Thank you so much 🙂
I am currently in my third semester of didactic year and will be starting clinical rotations in the fall. My family is moving to Tampa and I was hoping to get a rotation set up in the area. I am looking for a preceptor in family or internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral, women's health, or emergency medicine.
If you know any contacts or other forums I could reach out to please let me know, thank you!
Starting a thread for the 2021-2022 cycle. I had no idea that they were going to apply for accreditation this year, I've only seen their status as pending for the last couple of months. It's located in a smaller building that will most likely be sharing a space with their PT program that seems fairly new as well. Thoughts on taking the risk to apply to this developing program?
