    What is Needed to Start Clinical Rotations?

    Advertisements



    Could any upperclassmen provide us a detailed description on what is needed, besides a passing STEP 1 score, to start clinical rotations? I'm sure there must be tons of paperwork/medical clearance required. Any information is appreciated....

    all u need is step 1 score. I was able to reuse all my stuff from 5th. It took me about 15 mins to get all my paperwork in order after I got my score

    Mr. IwanabMD.. Since your exam is in less than a week.. I think you better get off ValueMd and hit books! Don't you worry about me, I'll be rocking that exam

    Rahul... I remember one of my friends telling me that he had to get more immunizations than the ones he had to get in 5th. Does that sound familar?

    It took me close to a month to get all the paperwork together. Every time I said okay, everything is in from the list you gave me, they would add 1-2 new things that were not on their original list that they gave me. After doing that 3 times I finally had everything in...

    There is a good amount of paperwork to start clinicals. But most of the paperwork is very similar to 5th semester..i just had to get a physical again other then that everything else was good for the school.. but when i started my rotations in staten island i had to get PPD and Urine Drug test again because they wanted PPD with in 6 months and Drug test with in 1 month.


    and if u are going to do be doing clinicals in NY you also have to get infectious control training (took me about 2 hours to complete online) and send an application to NYSED for long term clerkship eligibility...

    LOL.. Confidence is a MUST, otherwise the axiety of taking such an important exam will kill you. All my notes are written in my FA (scattered bw 2009 and 2010), sorry. But iwanabmd typed a 40 page LOW yield document....

    Here is a little levity for this thread……………………..
    This happened to me yesterday. I'm in my last year of med school and am spending a month in an outpatient internal medicine clinic working with "Dr. Jones."

    Dr. Jones told me that the next patient, a 75 year old lady named "Mrs. Smith," was undergoing chemotherapy for a really early grade lymphoma. Not a big deal. Nowadays it's a chronic disease... you'll die with the lymphoma, not from it. Anyway, Mrs. Smith was presenting with a cough that was unrelated to her lymphoma. I went in to see Mrs. Smith.

    "So Mrs. Smith, how long have you had this cough? any other symptoms? You coughing up anything?" etc. Then I say "So I understand you just finished chemotherapy. Is that correct?"

    "yes."

    "and that was for...?"

    (no response)

    "that was for...?"

    (no response)

    "that was for a lymphoma. Correct?"

    "wait. I have lymphoma?"

    [oh crap]

    "um, yes. I was under the impression that you have a low grade lymphoma. Is that correct?"

    "I have lymphoma?? I have lymphoma? are you saying I have lymphoma??"

    "Well, you have a blood-based neoplasia. Is that correct? A lymphoma. Or a leukemia."

    "I have leukemia??! What are you saying?? Oh no!!"

    "well, I must be mistaken. Don't worry, I'll talk to the doctor about this and we'll square things out. Anyway, about your cough..."

    I was in a panic. How could this woman not know that she had a lymphoma? She was undergoing chemotherapy for something. She had to know what it was, right? Maybe she was in denial and never actually heard the words lymphoma. I was so nervous. I was sweating bullets. I rushed through a throat and lung exam and ran back into Dr. Jones' office.

    "Dr. Jones, you're gonna kill me. I told Mrs. Smith she has a lymphoma and she said 'I have a lymphoma??'"

    She responds, "oh, well, we'll figure that out."

    So we go into the room together. Dr. Jones sits down next to Mrs. Smith, puts her hand on her shoulder, looks her in
    the eye and says, "Mrs. Smith, you know you have a lymphoma, right?"

    "Yeah, I do. I was just messing around with your med student."
