Hi Guys,

I know people have talked about this topic so many times but I'm still confused. So, basically if I want to do residency in California,

1)then all of my core rotations have to be at a hospital that is ACGME accredited in that particular rotation or as long as that hospital has a acgme family medicine residency?


2)Also, what about electives? Do they have to be completed in acgme accredited hospitals and what if I'm doing a GI elective but that hospital doesn't have an acgme GI residency then what? Then if that hospital has an acgme family medicine residency then is that okay?

3) Do these rules only apply for obtaining residency or does it also apply for fellowships?

THANKS!!!!!!!!!
