    Good news for sixth semester students

    Advertisements



    Just received word from a reliable source within the AUA administration:

    "Passing the USMLE will over ride any GPA issues for the loan.
    "

    Therefore, despite the recent half-point increase in GPA requirements, the C that most of us received in 5th semester will not make us ineligible for loans.

    It would be nice if the Clinical Dept would deign to give the clinical students some official information on the new loan and grading policy instead of forcing us to rely on VMD to learn about key changes in school policy. Jeesh.

    What a relief...only a few people had A s or B s in 5th in Atlanta last semester because of the ridiculous shelf score percentage of your grade. Not to mention the midterm or should I say midterm(s). Very few people would be going into 6th semester if they actually held everyone to the 2.5 rule.

    Now all you PRE-6th semesters Good Luck on the step!! Anyone know the status of current Greenbook rotation wait time?

    haha, good luck...depends on the site/rotation you want...some ppl reallllly luck out and get their scores back at the "right" time, all about luck. basically if you want NY, get in line, if your willing to travel, go for it, youll get thru (wouldnt suggest this)...you wanna try to do your rotations at some of the better sites AUA has, you want good experience and good teaching. when you schedule, always have 2nd, 3rd, 4th options to give to your clinical coordinator, their good at what they do! dont always listen to your fellow colleagues, some ppl just dont look at the glass half full and complain a lot, bc they dont know how to deal with diff personalities, the cc's are very stressed and your not the only one they deal with on a daily basis, their human, they have 2 hands and can only do so much, so dont expect your next 6 months to be booked up and you be sent on your merry way...on the other note, your also not the only person tryin to get a spot. SO IN POINT BE SPECIFIC in what you want, my example email to TL...1. IM - harbor hosp. 2. IM-RUMC 3. IM-Union Memorial 4. IM-Wyckoff etc etc etc...
    Baltimore- not much of a wait at all, BUT they try to push you to do this "Neuro Psych" elective at NBC, straigth **, unless your trying to do psych, its a waste of 4 weeks of elective time. other than that, you most prob. will startt with an elective there, then be rolled into family then psych core, good way to knock those out the way and move on.
    ATL-dont know much about this, other than a few fellow students HATE it...but not too long of a wait.
    Mich-good luck, ha
    Chi- not too many ppl seem to want it, mainly bc o nly family is green there, and we JUST got a new green IM spot there.

    btw, dont be too hell bent on greenbook greenbook greenbook, bluebook is accepted, atleast by NY<the state i live in, i checked 4 times, dont know bout any other states, call and check your self, dont leave ANYTHING up to the school, this is your education,not theirs> Bluebook is accepted bc AOA is the same thing as ACGME in the eyes of the state board, they license MD's & DO's...just my cents of logic.

    hope this helps..holla

    All depends on the state as to whether or not you should be hell bent on greenbook. Do something other than greenbook cores AND electives and you won't be practicing in TX. Louisiana, on the other hand, could care less about green/blue (from what I've read and understand). Vettekilla1 is right....don't leave ANYTHING up to the school and don't take their word for ANYTHING. Do your homework. Know your state's requirements and make sure you have proof that your site is listed with ACGME if green is important to you and your state.

    Loan Information

    Could you please, privately or publicly, tell me who told you this? I was told yesterday that they would NOT be certifying my loan due to my GPA. This is troublesome as I am IN PR and don't have $20 grand laying around.

    I'd love to get back to the office with a name!

    Dont we have 27 weeks of electives? Why would it be a waste? lets say I wanted to do radiology... then I only have 4 weeks to do an elective in radiology correct? so that gives me 26 weeks to fill with other electives... why not fill 4 weeks with some ** neuropsych rotation? Damn, Im just clueless when it comes to clinicals... can we do more than 4 weeks for an elective rotation, lets say for radiology?
