      the day or whether it will be assigned

         A Word from Pediatrics
   Commutable = less than one hour drive
   Needing to feed your cat doesn’t guarantee a
    commutable site
   We know life changes, but not usually last minute
   This is a Pediatrics rotation, so the practitioner
    must be a pediatrician. And not your father, your
    uncle, etc.
   Texas is big, there’s sure to be someone suitable in
    this state.
