    Just 1 Question - Can I get all greenbook rotations?

    Advertisements



    Hey guys. I don't care about state approvals and all that. I just want to practice in Virginia. To do so, I need all greenbook rotations. So:

    Can I get all greenbook rotations as a UMHS student, or will I have to do some bluebook rotations?

    If some UMHS students can, and others aren't able to, what differentiates them - their grades, Step 1 scores, etc.?

    Thanks in advance.

    Let me add that I do not mind having to graduate a semester or two late while waiting for greenbook rotations to open up.

    Yea, I will answer, but at a cost.

    For although I will answer the question you asked, I will first answer several questions that later on in life you will realize you should have asked first. And in the bargain you must ask questions of yourself.

    You know what you want now, which is to practice in Virginia. But as of right now, you do not know how medical school, travel, living in foreign lands will change you, your mindset, your life circumstances. And it will. Profoundly. As you stand here today, you may not understand that as a third tier IMG student, choice will be a forgotten word in a foreign language when it comes to residency and gaining licensure. You get what is given to you, and are happy to receive it in the bargain.

    Perhaps like most premedical students, you are more concerned with getting into a school than any other factor. This is understandable.

    So you think greenbook rotations are your biggest hurdle, but if you are considering attending this school I would ask you to have an honest conversation with yourself about why you think this is a good idea. You say you don't care about state licensure, but the truth is you are closing doors that have not even been opened to you yet.

    Furthermore, by choosing to go to UMHS you are informally declaring that you have six figures in available funds to pay tuition. If can afford to pay the lion's share of this sizable medical tuition out of pocket...why did you not qualify for a more established school? What personal failings do you have to overcome where you were amply funded in your college years yet you managed to fall short?

    Secondly, and perhaps pointlessly, since economic limitations are apparently not an issue for you, are there really and truly zero other professions that you are willing to investigate at this time?

    Yet I am not an admission committee. I merely suggest that you have this conversation with yourself, for your own edification and for no further purpose.

    To answer your question, UMHS has a veritable plethora of green book rotations, green book umbrella, blue book. If you are willing to sit around and wait for spots to open up, then you should not have any trouble. Rumor has it that should you speak spanish, or be willing to pretend that you do, you might even be able to sit in the same place for all of the clinical rotations without any wait at all. Yet in the grand balance, so few choose that feverish route of sweaty-toothed madness, for in truth that way, legend has it, lies mortal peril.

    I wish you the best of luck, and may you fare well in your travels, regardless of your destination. Think upon what was said here today. The answers are rarely as simple as you might think on first examination.

    That's some literate and formal response.
