    My experience getting cores

    1. i took the usmle on jan 26th.
    2. i did the oasis trick on thursday (feb 16) and saw that i passed.
    3. i called V at MEAS immedietely to see how full my first choice (providence) was holding up. i was told that there was only one slot left for MI, but he couldnt slot me in it until he had my actual score report.
    4. waited for it in the mail on saturday (feb 18), but it still didnt come.
    5. wished that presidents day was not on monday (no mail) .
    6. received my report today and scanned into an email both sides of it as well as faxed both sides to meas asap.
    7. about 45 minutes later, i got an email from V telling me that i got that last spot at MI.

    TO THE CHICKEN LITTLES OUT THERE------ THERE IS NO TOWN IN UK CALLED PROVIDENCE OR MICHIGAN OR SOUTHFIELD.

    -----------------------------------------------
    as far as what slots are left, when i found out about the single slot left for MI last week, i also found out about cali (second choice).

    3 of 4 was filled for april kern. 0 of 4 were filled for june kern. V had a score report that wanted cali but he didnt know which start date they wanted. so as of late last week, april may have already been filled or 1 slot filled for june.

    wasnt interested with new york but they have loads of slots there.

    -------------------------------------------------
    this is only the update i got late last week. im just posting my experience, dont take it as absolute. i am not MEAS.

    i have a question for u auc'ers...when u schedule kern, does the school do it for u or do u have to go through Kern's clinical department? do u have to submit a separate application?

    just wondering cuz ross makes us submit an app to kern and then tells us they have nothing to do with the decision and kern makes it, not them.

    Aloha,

    But here's the problem. According to ACGME.ORG none of those electives exist with a certified residency. Well, 2 do : ER and FP.

    Are the others signed off by other institutions like Peds is? Actually, that's another question I've been wondering, who accredits the Peds rotation? I talked to the guy a long time ago at the clinical fare but it didn't make much sense to me.

    For instance, peds at providence in Detroit is signed off by the guys over at St. Johns (at least that's what I think it is).

    Can you clarify?

    Sub-Internship. You work and act as if you were a resident but are still a medical student.
