RUSM Clinical Rotations



clinical rotations are very nerve-wracking but very exciting you finally get to experience patient care firsthand there are basically a glimpse of my future they're very educational the third year is made up of six core rotations internal medicine surgery family medicine psychiatry pediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology I just finished my family medicine rotation what the island really helped with that was on the island you get taught all the clinical skills and you get taught all the how you're supposed to approach a patient for the first time and hire supposed to get to know their background medical history and especially in my family Mehta fermentations really helped out to have the confidence go into the patient's room and meet somebody for the first time I see some along these same things I saw down on the island I actually already have a preconceived notion on how I'm gonna treat them or how I want to approach their situation so it was actually a great experience the Ross University medical students when starting their clinical rotations can expect to be driven to their maximum potential here with their education I find my clinical rotations sometimes challenged even because you have to go from learning from your book work applying it to a clinical scenario right in front of you know it's not open up let me just go read a paragraph you took some questions on it and learn it this is more about applying what you've been learning throughout your two years in med school into a patient here for we offer right now about 30 to 35 different electives that the students can do their whole senior year our electives they take four-week rotations and that kind of makes them kind of start to think of what do I want to go into I mean my my fourth year I'm in clinical rotations right now and I'm doing physical medicine to rehab medicine and I'm at st. Joseph's and I'm enjoying it it's been really good it's mostly palpation the preceptor works directly with me and you know so he's been teaching me the physical exam and since I want to go into neurology he sees me how to do physical exam properly for neurology the Ross students are very prepared when they come into clinicals on prior to coming in they complete IMF in Miramar Florida and they get a little bit of clinical experience there I need my cores in one place and I did the beltway track in the DC Baltimore area my wife and I were able to live in one apartment the whole time that was great because she was able to have a job and we were more stable that way my track my core is for all done in New York and I was split up between three hospitals Brookdale st. John's Episcopal and at New Jersey Hospital Avoca it was convenient to have a place that I could rent for a year but I did enjoy that I got to go to three different hospitals I was lucky in that regard for the most part I would say that Ross very much prepared me for what was coming up ahead in fourth year as a fourth year elective student in my southern sub-internship rotations and now you know going further now as a residents I definitely would say that my rotations gave me a good a good breath like a wide breadth of what to expect I feel at Ross prepared me extremely well to perform well not only in my studies for step one and set – but also being prepared in a good in a clinical environment they can expect to be challenged they're challenged every single day pushed to their limits to really know and understand their anatomy and their clinical sciences but not only that they'll be challenged to grow as people they really well I've seen that happen time and time again they'll be challenged through making mistakes and they'll be challenged through learning and they'll be challenged through pushing themselves to do things that they didn't even expect that they could do it's a long hike what I'm trying to do is try to prepare them for that long hike while they're here
