    Is NY that big of a deal?

    Advertisements



    To those that have matched:
    did not having NY residences severely limit your chances of matching. Looking at statia's residency placement it doesn't seem to but hearing that NY has 20% of all residencies is troubling. I recently got into IAU and Statia and this is the deciding factor.

    Why does it matter if a school has a good track record of residency placements if most of the STEP1 /2 studying is up to the student. If its mostly self study what justifies a higher tuition at Statia?..thanks

    NY accreditation

    This concern really applies only to those planning on getting extensive training in NY. Not a concern for me.

    Go Spain!!!

    why is residency important unless you want to go to NY? during interviews, nobody asks if a program is recognized by new york. they don't even recognize the schools. so, residency is NOT as important as being able to practice there. 3 years of my life versus a career...

    Any Accreditation Puts a School on the MAP

    I was told two years ago from the NY office that accreditation was imminent; all b.s. After 3 days visiting the island I found out that a site team had actually been to Statia years earlier and that there were so many problems that Statia withdrew from the NY accreditation process. I went to AUC and not only can do more cores but lots of electives; there are so many good residencies available in and outside of the city!!! Shame on the St. E admin for not following up on NY accreditation-I mean AUA and IAU were really young schools when they got approved. Yossarrian

    how does accreditation put a school on the map? outside of NY, it's worthless. programs in MA don't care if a program is accredited in NY. it appears to only matter to some carib students. outside the caribbean, it has no meaning.

    to make things clear

    WSUCougar

    California is the only State that has a "specific" approval/disapproval List, where the California Medical Board visits each campus, gathers info, performs their own research, and then based on the data collected, disapprove or approve that Medical School. Other State Medical Boards do not have these resources, and therefor choose to adopt the Cali List.

    Nearly all of the rest of the states DO NOT have an approval/disapproval list. Instead they require a set standard of requirements. In particular, they require that your Caribbean School be IMED Listed. After that, they look at where you did your rotations, how many times you had to take the Step etc, etc. But the key is that having your Carib School IMED listed, fulfills your requirement in nearly all of the states (As long as you fulfill their other requirements, and are not Cali Disapproved).

    The New York and Florida Approval List has NOTHING to do with Licensure. Instead these lists deal strictly, and ONLY with Clinical Rotations. If your Carib School is NY or FL Approved, then you have the possibility to do as many weeks of Clinical Rotations that you want in FL or NY. If your school is not NY or FL approved, than the amount of clinicals you can do in NY or FL is limited (as shown below).

    With New York Approval = A student from your school can do an unlimited amount of clinical rotations in the state of NY

    Without New York Approval = A student from your school can only do a MAXIMUM of 12 weeks of clinical rotations in the state of NY

    With or Without New York Approval = You ARE ELIGBLE for a Permanent Licensure, due to your school being IMED listed

    With Florida Approval = A student from your school can do an unlimited amount of clinical rotations in the state of FL

    Without Florida Approval = A student from your school can NOT DO ANY amount of clinical rotations in the state of FL

    With or Without Florida Approval = You ARE ELIGIBLE for Permanent Licensure, due to your school being IMED listed
