Hello friends, it’s me again!
After months away from writing (as I guess I’m prone to based on my post frequency), I’m back with more content that isn’t just brunch and happy hour.
‘Tis the season for away rotations (also known as audition rotations), the time during which fourth year medical students across the country essentially “audition” at another institution in pursuit of a coveted residency spot. I’m sure you’ve come across other blogs with advice posts on when/why to do an away rotation, but this post will focus more on how to get the most out of your away rotation.
*Note: Aways are less common in fields such as Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, so my perspective will definitely be skewed toward the former. Additionally, I am not able to answer any questions regarding FMG and IMG applicants as I am unfamiliar with the process.*
