are you being asked to leave right away or have they told you that they will not be renewing your contract next yr?
somethings are just not sitting right, more probably because a lack of info...
was your remediation done officially as a result of an RPEC meeting? did you meet with your PD on a regular basis (usually interns will meet with the PD every quarter)? how did those meetings go? did you meet with your advisor or mentor on a quarterly basis? he/she can act as your advocate, but you have to talk to him/her so they know what is going on.
what was your remediation for...and what did they say you needed to do? and is it in writing? and did you do the things they told you to do?
how supprortive are your chiefs? have the been able to give you advice on what to do to fix things?
its less than 6 months so RPEC has probably only met once as a scheduled meeting, or did they call a special meeting because someone asked for it?
to be asked to leave so early, sorry, isn't usually about being slow or not learning the computer systems...its usually about a serious violation of a core compentency or repeated complaints about the same issues...tardiness, not completing notes, not working well with nursing staff, not working well with other interns or residents...but even then that gets you a failure of a rotation or remediation...not termination on the spot.
if they are not renewing your contract, the best route is to complete the yr and then leave...hopefully the PD will help you find another spot and there are attendings that you have worked well with and can help find another position...in the mean time work to improve the deficiencies that you have.
and sorry...but you can't sit here and say "poor me i'm an AUC grad in a sea of AMGs and that's why i'm not doing well"...there are PLENTY of AUC grads out there in predominately AMG programs and perform above expectations...keep focusing on that and history will just repeat itself...
also you should talk to a lawyer about what is the best result possible...the most important thing, as others have posted, is being able to maintain your ability to get another position.
