    5th semester for the new curriculum?

    Advertisements



    So how is 5th semester going to be set up for the new curriculum? They have Kaplan or Falcon for 2 months and then clinical portion in the states? Just curious and simply wanted to know.

    Wow so does anyone know the answer or not???

    I thought I could get a quick response and just check back on my own convenience but I guess I would have to call NY office to find out if anyone couldnt respond here...

    I believe the new 5th semester is 6 weeks intro to medicine / 6 weeks of falcon review and then 6 weeks of self study with step1 taken within those 6 weeks of self study. (This was desgined because some students weree taking a year to self study for step 1. Also US students typically only get 3 weeks for step 1 self study
    STEP 1 [X] STEP 2 [X] STEP 3[X] PGY - 1 [X] PGY-2 [*]

    The new 5th semester will consist of a 10 week Kaplan review course in the place of Falcon and the first Family Medicine rotation for 6 weeks.

    I'm currently a student here.

    As of now the Kaplan review portion is on the island for 10 weeks. The rest is at home.

    kaplan or falcon. Both aren't helpful if the students did not adequately prepare during basic sciences. They are REVIEW COURSES. So if you obviously struggled through basic sciences or cheated your way through, both kaplan or falcon will do nothing to help you.
