    Questions about clinical rotations in Canada?

    Advertisements



    From what I've read it seems that strong LOR's and networking are critical to gaining residency positions. I'm a Canadian hoping to make it home and practice after my MD is completed. Does AUC offer any chances to do clinical rotations at Canadian hospitals? Has anybody experienced/heard of this happening? If so, what parts of Canada or which hospitals?

    cores must be undertaken at an affiliated hospital, of which there are none in canada. you seem to have forgotten the importance of step scores in residency placement.

    dont know for sure about electives in canada....maybe someone else can answer that

    To my knowledge you can only do rotations at US hospitals or affiliated UK hospitals. If you do rotations in Canada, you may run into some issues when applying for residency programs. I'd call ECFMG/ERAS/NRMP about that as well before you consider doing rotations outside the US.

    You can do cores and electives in Canada. How? Calls CaRMS and ask them. It is hard but doable.

    Your school also has to be instrumental, talk to your placement coordinator.

    Electives are possible and more than enough for accreditation. It takes connections to get through the red tape, though.
