    AOA vs. ACGME

    Advertisements



    Is it better to do an AOA rotation or a rotation that is ACGME approved because of its affiliation with another program (like south fulton family med was through its affiliation with morehouse) From what i understand, in these type of "acgme affiliated rotations" you actually go to clinics instead of the hospital but the hospital name shows up on your transcript. So what im wondering is if, in terms of licensure, it is better to do an AOA or one of these "Acgme affliated" rotations...will residency programs and state licensing boards prefer AOA over these type of rotations?

    be very careful with rotations being run through agencies...many students lost clerkship credit or are pending with the fsmb and in courts...check the legal facts. aoa or acgme is not as relevant as the rotation itself coming from a teaching hospital - and the evaluations signed/authenticated by the hospitals themselves.

    If you agree to do a rotation and its green but later you turn it down, what are the repercussions?
