Hey all,
Received my paperwork at the end of last week for starting my new grad position later in the year. Turns out though that my employment is only 'temporary', for six months. I'm not sure if this is normal or not? Are six month grad programs commonplace? I was told a year when I initially went for my interviews, so im not sure if this is just one part of my program. 
I haven't had the chance to ask my HHS about this yet so I was wondering if anyone was able to shed some light on the situation.
Thanks in advance :)

I was under the impression most are 12 months, with some taking up to 2 years. How many rotations does your HHS provide? How long do they go for? Perhaps it is a typo? I would be asking the HHS as they are the only ones who can give you the answer.

Forgive me for dredging up An old thread but I hate leaving things unfinished :-) turns out my grad program is twelve months, but the hospital I started at last week isn't sure of the logistics yet of where grads are switching to, so it's no point signing amother six month contract just yet.
