Sublet for medical Student 9/24-10/22/2011: Visiting 4th year Medical Student from Waldorf Community in New York seeks housing for Vascular Surgery Clerkship at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Requires furnished room with WIFI or plug-in high speed cable. Ideally housing would be within 10 minutes walk of Maine Medical Center with own bathroom. Pluses would be off street parking and access to a kitchen and laundry machine, though no medical laundry would come to the house. I am Male, in my 30's and married. I love cats, dogs and gardens and am a respectful lodger. My wife is a eurythmist and we live up the road from Green Meadow Waldorf School. There will be times when I will keep unsocial hours as a Surgical Team Member and need a quiet environment and ease of coming and going at odd hours. Sadly the Medical School does not have any accommodation available for me during my visit so I am reaching out to you as the local Waldorf Community. I would like to pay $800 for the 4 weeks, but would consider more for the right situation. Thank you for reading. Please call my wife, Rachel with any questions or possiblities. Regards, Shad Haque (845) 300 6542 (09/07)
