    MUA - GreenBook Rotation ACGME

    Advertisements



    Hi Guys, if someone who is in clinical rotations can clarify somethings for me please it would be a big help.

    I have went on the ACGME Website (ACGME Dot Org) and a lot of our hospitals are not under the Greenbook accreditation by specialty only through the umbrella system.


    I also emailed some of the licensing boards and a lot of them are recommending the GreenBk by specialty route as they say you may run into issues with certain states, not all but some. They told me that GreenBk by specialty is preferred in states like New Jersey and Texas whereas other state licensing commissions don't put too much emphasis on it.

    So my questions are

    1) Are the rotations without the GreenBk by specialty not worth going to because I really don't want any more obstacles whn I go for my residency etc etc etc ????

    2) Does going through the GreenBk by umbrealla really hurt you ????

    3) Has anyone paid to setup their own rotations and if so how??

    AND please no disrepect to anyone's opinion, please reply with facts that you know, with somekind of reference.... Just to avoid confusion
    Thank you

    MD Galaxy: You already have answered your own question. Maybe you are looking for a guarantee? Nobody really knows all the facts, because they change so regularly, per state. You will never be limited getting into a residency based on where you rotated, but you will have licencing issues. There are a few states, listed somewhere on here that require all green's. Call MUA, or search.

    Pedoo, it can take from 1-2 months to set up electives, depending upon if MUA already has a relationship with the institution or not. If not, you have to fill out their insurance/etc. paperwork, then have MUA certify it. It's not hard, it just takes time.

    Yes indeed, the I-95/Turnpike State requires any core clerkship completed in the U.S. to be under ACGME or AOA for a minimum of four weeks per core. www.fsmb.org

    I know I should know this, or research it, but do you know if the family med residency is acgme at this hospital where all cores are done, does that make all cores acgme. Or do all cores have to be done where there is an acgme residency in that core?

    that is only for california...it is the only state medical board requiring family medicine for four weeks...hence, they are the only one requiring the minimum umbrella affiliation under FP.
