I was wondering if at western they do an OB or pediatric placement?
For your placements, you can be placed anywhere in the Southwest LHIN. This includes the two hospitals in London, University Hospital and Victoria Hospital. I would assume that these would be options for you, however, the way it works for your 1st/2nd placements is that it's sort of assigned at random. We had to register for a specific group section online, and then that group section was assigned to a unit. I'm lucky, and I start in June on cardiology/cardiac surgery
. I have some friends who will be in oncology, palliative care etc, but I can keep my ears open to see if anybody specifically got a pediatric placement.
Also, I believe Western is able to send 1-2 students to Sick Kids in Toronto, but I believe it is very competitive and you must complete essays etc. As for your IP in your final semester, we are able to give them a list of PREFERRED units, and they do their best to assign us somewhere we would like to be.
