    just wondering, you know that Jackson Park is only greenbook for family med? i've been hearing Dr. P and other school officials saying you can do all your cores there and that it is a greenbook hospital (which it is, but only for family med).

    You should point this out to Dr. P and school officials, or at the very least make sure your classmates know so they don't fall for it.

    Jackson Park is an inexpensive clinical site that promises that everything is Green so they can attract business from offshore schools. You'll notice that reputable schools like SGU and AUC don't let their students do anything here.

    Thanks for the replies. I have been reading a lot about it not being greenbook, but what about all those students who do their cores and still get residency. My wife went to Ross and did all her cores through Jackson except for IM and OB, and now she is doing her residency in Illinois. I know a lot of friends with the same situation.

    I understand that some states may have strict policies like Cali. But I think as far as Illinois is concerned, I should be safe, since this is the only state I will be applying for residency. I would like to know if anyone had any problems, or know of anyone who had problems getting residency in Illinois because they rotated thru Jackson.

    I appreciate the replies, and would like to just educate myself more and be informed. I was told to talk to someone specific at AUA regarding greenbook status, so lets see what their explanation is.

    Thanks.

    it won't matter for residency but when it comes down for licensure, there may be some problems.

    So a state can give u license to practice as a resident, but then decline you for license after you are done with residency? Can you please elaborate on that, its amazing how much I still need to learn about all these things.

    Thanks.

    There's a limited license and an unrestricted license. The first is for residency and is easy to get.

    I was reading on the St. Matthews forum that Georgia now uses the California list to "determine eligibility" for a permanent license to practice medicine there. The Georgia medical board official used very vague language, but it's still a scary trend.

    reading the posts on the SMU forum paints a pretty bad picture for them. but just to clarify...SMU is in a worse position than AUA because they are on the California disaproval list while we are not, right? or are we both in the same position (i'm only referring to states where we can do residency, not neccessarily get licensed).

    i think we are in a better position, just an example with Texas, because of SMU's disapproval, they have no chance of practicing there whereas an AUA grad does have a chance on a case by case basis.
