The Typical Rotation Schedule for the Academic Year 2016-2017

The table shows rotations during the 3 years of training. Our academic year is divided into 4-week blocks, thus there are 13 blocks in each year. A few rotations may be for two weeks and are therefore shown as "0.5" blocks. Please Note: the table below is an approximation for a house officer in a given year. The spectrum for individual house officer's in each year may vary somewhat, though not substantially.
