most places offer 4 weeks, some offer 6 weeks. If you go to a place that offers 6 weeks, then 2 weeks will go towards ur elective count.

I think the confusion began with NY where the rotations are all 6 weeks in duration. FM/FP--whatever you want to call it--is 6 weeks in NY. But 2 of those 4 get credited as electives. Everywhere else, it seems that students are doing 4 week FM/FP rotations. So 4 weeks sounds right to me.
Thanks again for the info everyone.

I'm just telling you what I was told Directly by my coordinator less than 2 months ago and I would find it strange for them to tell me that if they didn't know of at least one state that has an issue with it. What would it benefit them to say it?
Either way I've done more than 4 weeks so I'm not concerned and don't really feel like looking around for a link.
But if you are all quite positive about this then that's great and I'm wrong and we should tell the coordinators not to say otherwise to us.
However, if there is any doubt, for even one state, then maybe shouldn't tell everyone on this forum that 4 weeks is enough, when in fact, it may not be.
