    Smile Greenbook for Canadians

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone,

    its MagicalMe, for some who remember me almost a year and a half ago.

    Question:
    for Canadian students, how would having greenbook/vs some greenbook vs no greenbook rotations help or affect your residency chances
    Assume that you would want to do residency in the states?
    would having all greenbook help your resume when applying?
    for those who are canadians and obtained residency in the states or know people who have done so, what was their experience?

    For residency in Canada: greenbook vs. non-greenbook doesn't matter.
    For residency in US: greenbook matters in certain states, it doesn't matter in others, and some states want only cores to be greenbook.

    It doesn't help your resume, but doing a greenbook rotation means you maybe have access to faculty who can write a more prestigious letter of recommendation.

    I'm applying for residency right now, and nobody asked me my rotations were greenbook or not; I think it comes up more when you are going for full permanent licensure.

    ACGME accreditation will become an issue when applying for licensure (in the United States). It is a non-issue with regards to licensure with CPS in Canada.
