    BETTER CLINICALS - Ross vs. AUC

    Advertisements



    I know that both schools have about the same affiliated hospitals but I understand that setting up Clinicals through Ross's Clinical Program seems to be really unorganized and a big pain in the ...
    Is this true?
    Is AUC more organized when it comes to setting up your clinicals?

    I dunno, never dealt with Ross before. But in regards to a place like Kern that a lot of people want, it's a LOT easier to get it through AUC than Ross. From what I hear, popular places at Ross are given to people based off of grades and Step 1 score. At AUC, it's all a matter of when you fax in your score.

    I don't go to either school so take what I say with a grain of salt. I can tell you that after spending much time researching Carib schools, I found countless threads about Ross' poor clinical dept. Ross grads are even advising newbies to go to SGU or AUC. Here's a link to one such thread. http://www.valuemd.com/ross-universi...-ross-sgu.html

    Good Luck with your choice.

    Considering your posting this on the AUC forum. You will get an overwhelming response saying AUC has better clinicals.

    So i say AUC has better clinicals than ROSS. thank you for your time.

    Some of my friends in my rotations go to ROSS and they always complain about scheduling their cores. What's nice about AUC is that you can have your whole core rotation schedule set when you start cliniclas, this is not so with ROSS. As well they overbook the rotations so you may think that you are starting a rotation, but when you get there you are told that there is no room for you. Hope this helps.

    It's actually unfortunate that AUC doesn't have a similar policy.

    Worry about Step 1 first, then clinicals. Clinicals is first come, first serve.

    I agree...seems like you should get some kind of advantage for doing better.
