Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery
It was a meaningful experience, my first clinical rotation abroad, and allowed to me to understand how works the health system in the United States. Also, it gave to me a good insight of the plastic surgery, and how to approach the patients. Dr Barr was an excellent physician and professor, additionally he cared a lot about my learning.
i truly enjoyed my whole experience in west palm beach.
Even though it is high cost, the service is amazing. I only had to worry on getting the things they told me done and they took care of the rest. I believe that is their greatest asset, their great client service. A few things I would recommend just to help the student have a more clear understanding of what to expect and what is needed:
1. I would be very clear on the differences between a hands on vs observation rotation because even though I did the hands on rotation, there is not much you can do in a private practice with high class patients and in office procedures. Maybe in a hospital scenario the difference between hands on and observership are more clear but I felt like this rotation was more an observership than a hands on.
2. I understand every rotation and facility is different and demand different things as well, but in my case I got a ton of vaccines and exams and in the office they told me that was not necessary for this practice, I guess this is because we are not in a hospital and I do not go to surgery in the surgery center. Fortunately I have insurance here and could get a vaccine I was missing for free before I began my rotation but in my country where I got the other ones they are very expensive and the tests are also expensive and hard to get.
It was a great and new experience
