How to find CA (LA area) Rotations?

Recommended Posts

I'm a second year PA student going to school in VA, but I'm from CA. It's been awhile and I don't have any contacts in CA to do my rotations. I need advice/ideas on how to find rotations, preferably in the LA area for this July and August (my elective rotations). My main interest are orthopedics and dermatology, but really any rotation help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

I'm in your same exact situation (I'm from CA and in PA school in VA!). I just found out my rotation schedule and I want to do three rotations back home in the Bay Area or even in Southern California. I've emailed a bunch of clinical coordinators at the various PA schools and education coordinators at the hospitals, but it seems my emails seem to just get lost in cyber space. My clinical coordinators have no contacts out there, so I'm all alone. If you get any good tips, I would really appreciate it! I'm looking for Women's Health, Cardio, and Derm- toward the end of the year. Best of luck to you.

Im in the same boat! Im in New England but from Berkeley and looking to get back to the Bay (or LA). If you find anything out let me know!! I keep getting passed around from department to department. I figure if we can piggyback a rotation or find a willing preceptor, do well working with them, then the next PA student might be able to use them as a preceptor. Look me up if you have facebook: mmote@une.edu so we can collaborate on this.

I am in the exact same spot. Did anyone have any luck finding preceptors? I'm currently beginning the process of setting up rotations as well, and would love to find someone in San Diego who would be willing to precept me. Let me know if you have any advice or can help in any way :)

I went to school in Nevada and setup all of my own rotations in So Cal. As a matter of fact, lots of people from my program have setup their own So Cal rotations ranging from the Valley down to the IE and to San Diego. Let me know how I can help.

ceosborn,

 

What region of california? I can offer an opportunity in the central valley. PM if interested

rice2zzgte,

 

I tried to PM you, but it says you can't receive new messages at this time. I am a PA-S2 at Yale currently looking for rotations in CA. I just completed a rotation at Tulare Regional Medical Center and am interested in finding more rotations in California. I would be interested in hearing more about any potential rotations that you could offer or know of. Thanks for your help. Feel free to message me on the forum, and then I can provide you with an email for future contact.

Timon,

Is it okay if I message you? I'm currently in my didactic year over in WA and wanted to go home ( SoCal) to be closer to the daughter. I'm mainly looking for a Family Practice or Internal Med preceptor in the LA area or anywhere in the SoCal area. Any info helps. Thanks!

BML8867 - Did you have any luck? 

I am a first year PA-S in Atlanta, GA. I begin rotations February 2018. I plan on working in Southern California upon graduation. Although my school sets up rotations for us in Atlanta, I would like to do as many rotations as possible in SoCal in order to begin networking and learning in the area where I want to practice in. We have 11 rotations total- each is 5 weeks. Is anyone interested in/willing to precept? Thank you for any help!! I have been searching for a month or so with very few solid results.

I am also a PA student in Boston but live in Riverside, CA. I will be starting rotations later this May (2018). I was hoping to do as many rotations as I can in Southern California in the LA/OC area or Inland Empire in order to start networking where I want to practice. I am looking for a preceptor in emergency medicine, general surgery, and cosmetic dermatology. If anyone has connections or suggestions, please let me know.

I would, but this hospital has since closed. After working in multiple emergency departments throughout the state since graduation, it makes sense looking back.

      What are some book/resources that you used to study for the PAEA end of rotation exams. Did you follow the blueprint exactly when studying? 
      Thanks!

      Our program is starting rotations soon and we are using standardized end of rotation exams though the PAEA.  What are the best books to use to prepare for these exams or any end of rotation exam? 
      Thanks in advance!
