Intern Year Schedule

1

With only three days left before graduation, I received my schedule for intern (PGY1) year. Interns start their rotations on the 1st of every month and leave on the last day of that month.

July 2013VA Nephrology
September 2013St. Luke’s Hematology/Oncology
October 2013Ben Taub General Medicine
November 2013St. Luke’s Cardiology
December 2013St. Luke’s Pulmonary
February 2014Ben Taub Medical ICU
April 2014VA General Medicine
May 2014BT Emergency Room

The gaps during the year (August, January, March, June) will be filled with anesthesia-related rotations like ENT clinic, transfusion medicine, and general anesthesia.

I also know my vacation times: September 16th – September 22nd and March 10th – March 16th. I’ll also get a holiday break for Thanksgiving from November 27th – November 30th.

While all my fellow anesthesia interns have to rotate through the same rotations, I just wish I had a general medicine month to kick things off in July. I found that as a medical student, I learned a LOT starting on my core internal medicine rotation with regards to orders, consults, patient care, the breadth of cases, etc. Oh well, the renal service will definitely be a learning experience. I know most of us have two kidneys. And they’re important. 🙂
