Help Needed: St. Croix PA Students Seek Clinical Rotation Options

Hurricanes Irma and Maria recently battered the U.S. Virgin Islands, including Barry University’s St. Croix PA program. Now, their 70 displaced students are seeking new locations for clinical rotations closer to their family and friends who are helping them in the aftermath.

Starting on November 13 and continuing through next year, rotations are needed in various areas including family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, general surgery, pediatrics, women’s health, and behavioral health. Elective rotations are also needed (orthopedic surgery, trauma, dermatology, ICU, etc.).

The program’s rotation timeline is as follows:

Rotation 3: November 13–January 5 (includes one week off at both Thanksgiving and Christmas)
Rotation 4: January 10–February 14
Rotation 5: February 19–March 26
Rotation 6: April 2–May 8
Rotation 7: May 29–July 6
Rotation 8: July 11–August 17
