Stellar rotation

Program Review

Staff / Faculty / Chairman
Attendings were extremely friendly, focused on teaching and building resident operative skills. There are tons of big names. As a rotator, I worked directly with attendings and even chairs of departments.
Didactics / Teaching
Excellent didactics. Mix of basic level info up to cutting edge lectures. Mix of sessions run by residents and attendings. Good food at the didactic sessions
Operating Experience
Rush has exceptional operative volume, and residents benefit dramatically from this. There are many fellows but there is enough operative volume to go around.
Clinic Experience
Residents get a good amount of clinic experience, but not excessive. Let's face it, noone really likes clinic.
Research Opportunities
Second to none. Enough said
Residents
A fantastic group. Residents like to hang out and have a good time in the great city of Chicago
Lifestyle
Chicago is affordable as a resident and offers plentiful opportunities to enjoy the residency years. The program is relatively benign in terms of hours, so residents have plenty of time to enjoy the city.
Location / Housing
Rush location is easily accessible from a number of Chicago's desirable neighborhoods, such as west loop, river north, and wicker park. The hospital offers free parking garage for residents, so it is very easy to get to work.
Limitations
None
Overall Rotation Experience / Conclusion
Amazing rotation at an amazing residency program. Overall compared favorably with rotations at other top programs such as HSS. Check it out.
