1st - 6 weeks of clinical at a LTC facility.
2nd - med/surg and Pharm
3rd - med/surg
4th - OB
- you are in a lottery and you choose which way you want to rotate through the last 3 quarters.
The choices are Peds, Psych and Cardiac.

Talk about going nuts! Word is is that they are planning on switching these around. Another change that has happened is that for anyone applying for any of the medical programs you have to have gotten an B+ or better in A & P I & II or they will not accept you!
