The word “Sub-I” is making me itchy
So there is a meeting on Dec 10th with the regional rotations liaison where we are supposed to present our desired schedules for 4th year. The problem with this? I haven’t decided between Psych and FP/OMM… or maybe even PM/R.
Here’s the deal. I loved my psych rotation. LOVED. It was a blast and I could see myself doing it. But I was left wondering if it was just that atmosphere. Would I love psych anywhere else? I mean, I NEVER saw myself as a shrink, being so invested in OMM. Its the opposite deal with FP/OMM. I always saw myself doing that, but my experiences have been hit or miss. Some places so MISS that it made me almost permanently cross FP off my list. So do I hate FP in general, or have I just had bad experiences? And man PM & R does sound cool, and I have had multiple people say I’d be good at, I have the right personality, yada yada… but I have had ZERO experience with it. How can I commit to something on the premise of “it sounds cool”?
So instead of spending the key “audition” months at different possible residency sites, I need to do a rotation in each specialty. Really live each one and see if its fits. The rest are just fillers until I figure that out. It’d sure be great if I knew what I wanted to do because then those 3 months could be at the different residency sites I wanted…but… so it goes.
Well here’s what I have so far… comments and any suggestions would be very much appreciated 🙂
July- Psych in Sioux Falls
Aug- PM & R in Columbia
Sept- FP sub-I in Wyoming…no Montana…wait, Wyoming… ya Wyoming
Fillers to be done in Kirksville unless otherwise listed:
Allergy & Asthma
Drug & Alcohol
OMM…maybe in Maine?
