Luke's 2006-2007 Schedule

My schedule for the upcoming year is now final! (Well, almost.) Because there are only a limited number of slots open each month for every clerkship, the medical school uses a multi-tiered, computerized lottery system which allows students to rank their choices month-by-month. And even though I received my fifth choice (out of six available) for my core rotations, my second round of selections went perfectly. June is still open, but I intend to use it as a study month (which shouldn't be too hard to set up) as I do my last bit of cramming before sitting for boards (USMLE Step I). So without further ado, my schedule:

FEB. - Biochemistry Review
MAR. - Microbiology/Immunology Review
APR. - Year 4 DoRo (Internal Medicine)
MAY - Year 4 DoRo (Internal Medicine)
JUNE - Study Month (prelim.)
JULY - Year 5 Vacation
AUG. - Preceptorship (rural family practice)
SEP. - Obstetrics/Gynecology
OCT. - Obstetrics/Gynecology
NOV. - Psychiatry
DEC. - Year 5 DoRo (Internal Medicine)

JAN. - Year 5 DoRo (Internal Medicine)
FEB. - Elective (TBD)
MAR. - Pediatrics
APR. - Pediatrics
MAY - Surgery
JUN. - Surgery

After that, in a yet-to-be-determined order, I'll have a couple more months of internal medicine, two months of emergency medicine, a month of humanities, some elective rotations, and then boom - that'll be it!

It's like, the light at the end of the tunnel! Glad things worked out at least halfway in your favor. :-D
