    Traveling During Clinical Rotations

    Advertisements



    I spoke to a representative for MUA recently who told me that completing 2 72weeks of clinical rotations at one hospital or site is not always the case.

    is it possible for me to stay here and complete my clinical rotations at one of MUA affiliated hospitals here or would i have to travel from site to site and probably different states along the east cost to get this done?

    thanks - pasqualino

    some locations have nearly every core rotation available (cores are done in 3rd year are 42 weeks of rotations); however if you want all greenbook core rotations you will have to travel. your electives (30 weeks) can also be done at the same hospital as your core, if you choose.

    It is best to do some electives at places and rotations you are most interested in; that way the place gets to see you and you can get a reference letter from them to support your application.

    your core rotations are:
    surgery (12 weeks)
    internal medicine (12 weeks)
    ob/gyn (6 weeks)
    pediatrics (6 weeks)
    psych (6 weeks)

    why would a hospital have a clinical rotation for students if it was not greenbook? Since a hospital offers clinical rotations, wouldnt it mean its greenbook? What would the benefits be having all rotations done green book etc?

    thanks and sorry for all the noob questions.

    Numerous posts on green rotations. MUA rotations are green (ACGME rotations) meaning there is a residency in the hospital. Green by specialty means a rotation with a residency in that rotation, ie IM, OBGYN etc. This is where you would travel if you want green by specialty. Only US University hospitals usually have ALL GREEN CORES and ELECTIVES. MUA (like all carib schools) uses a network of many ACGME hospitals to ensure you can do all green by specialty if you want/need (the requirements as to what constitutes acceptable green vary state by state for rotations). Some states don't care, others want ACGME residents/US students that rotate at the hospital, or a few states want by specialty for all cores. Bottom line we have green rotations for all rotations (check your state requirements).

    Please use the search button and type in "greenbook".
