RVU wanted to OMS-lll students to share Notable Experiences/stories during their 3rd year rotations. I was voted to have the best story during my surgery rotation.
On 3rd Rotations we are separated from our colleagues/peers for the majority of the year. Reconnects are events to meet with peers and share our experiences on rotations.
I began my first rotation at Sunset Clinic in St George UT.
