    Mentoring in January and Residency

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone. I've searched through these forums for opinions on starting in January as opposed to the other terms. The main thing I've been looking for is information pertaining to Residency start time and there seems to be varied opinions on whether you can start in January and when you'll be ready to begin residency. For example, if I began January 2014 would it be impossible to begin residency in 2017, or would it be only feasible to begin residency in 2018? I know this has been discussed on here before but I wanted to know if there were any new opinions or thoughts. Thanks!

    Oops, the title should have been "Entering" not "Mentoring"... Autocorrect!

    Yes itís possible but is that a good idea to rush and to jeopardize you step1 score?

    The class starting in sep2013 will finish basic science in April 2015Ö..study for stepsÖ.start clinical in September 2015 (4months later).
    You, starting in Jan 2014, you will finish basic sciences in august 2015. If you want to catch the previous class, you must start the clinical as soon as possible, up to October 15(latest time according to rules, sufficient time for the rotations and the step2)

    To do so, you need a GPA of 80%+ and you need to pass the first COMP that you will take mid July 2015. The schools will pre-approve you and you can register for the USMLE to take it in early September. Considering it takes 3weeks to get the scores back, you have to have your score by October 15 to start the clinicals.
