    Continuing Clinical training 4 Off-Cycle Graduates from Ross, AUC, St. Georges, SABA

    Advertisements



    We are a hospitalist group looking to hire 2 newly graduated Caribbean graduates for 6-12 month clinical assistantships. These are more than observerships with direct care provided to patients under the guidance of licensed physicians.

    Responsibilities will include doing H&Ps, Progress Notes and rounding with the attending on your patients daily.

    A minimal living stipend will be given. In addition, the assistants will be able get LORs and make contacts for the upcoming NRMP match.

    The group does require the Assistants to stay current on ACLS during their assistantship.

    This is an excellent opportunity with ability to continue with your inpatient experience. We have had 2 graduates who worked with us for past 10 months and have now matched in residencies this year.

    This is for Big 4 school graduates who are US citizens or permanent residents only!
    Please send CV and a list of your clinical rotation schedule to apply at [email protected]

    In our experience, this has been ideal for off-cycle graduates waiting for the Match.

    Being Bilingual with Spanish is a big plus.

    Because there arent a huge pool of DOs who've passed the boards and through school who would be sitting around at home willing to take this. They would just take one of the Rotating Internship spots and get started on their training.

    While I realize the benefit and importance of making connections for the match, I am also concerned about making a decent amount of money to pay for bills. A "minimal" stipend isn't worth working for when we can work a job outside of healthcare making more money. We have loans to pay for and other various bills.
    Could you please post more details about this?

    Where in the US is this located?
    What is the "minimal" stipend?

    Thanks...

    personally, it sounds like they are looking to get a PA or ARNP on the cheap. thats just the way it comes off with the wording of the post.

    besides getting a few LORs from community physicians, do these physician's have any "active" ties to residency programs? what difference would it be to shadow a community physician, get an LOR....... but have a regular job in the meantime that pays more than a "minimal living stipend?"
