    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.

    --------------------------------------

    That I have *NO* idea about that... maybe G or some of the other Senior students can tell what they know on this subject. I'd like to hear what the benefit of doing a SubI is.

    If you can excel at your sub I and impress the right people, it may.

    The gentleman from AUC who landed Ophtalmology recently did his Ophtho sub I in England, made all of his mistakes there, then came back to the US for another Ophtho sub I and rocked it. Made a few connections...

    Aloha,

    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.
    We don't know what our schedule is until we set foot in KMC on our orientation day. KMC does all of our core rotation schedules. Elective schedules can have student input.

    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?
    Peds at KMC falls under the FP umbrella, since KMC doesn't have a Peds residency.

    I don't quite fully understand your comment about the ACGME and the listed electives and residency programs. It may be an accredited program, but KMC in no way offers residencies for all electives listed above. That may be where the confusion lies. The electives are for a student to pursue a specialty or subspecialty of interest. Therefore, I don't beleive the institution needs a residency program associated with every elective offered.

    Hope that muddies the water....

    Aloha,
    Now that is smart!!! I guess one could even do the same here in the states by going to do a SubI at an institution they have no interest in doing residency at and then going to another SubI at a residency they are interested at!

    Very Interesting......

    My concern lies in that "Umbrella" effect not because of graduation or residency but in picky states that are looking over your work in clinicals when it comes time for state licensure.

    This is my concern....

    "wow, im a little suprised. neoucom changed their policy and made foreign grads ineligible....... guess the AAMC is tightening their grip one way or another"

    what does "neocom" mean? and how did they change their policy?

    thanks

    Your concern is valid.

    SGU just had their clinical dean come to KMC for site visit and the current thought is that certain states may have an issue with the peds under the FP umbrella. California is not one of them.
