    San Juan City Vs San Juan Bautista

    Advertisements



    Can anyone compare the experience at both these hospitals if anyone has been to both of them?

    I know that San Juan city requires fluency but san juan bautista doesn't. I used to be fluent about 2-3 years ago but need to brush up on my Spanish. Should I take san juan city if offered to me?

    How do the rotations compare at both sites? I know that Int Med, Peds, and OB/Gyn are green at San Juan city so those are the rotations I'm looking at doing there. I'd rather do Peds & OB/Gyn and save Int Med for a hospital in the states.... anyone have a review on peds or ob/gyn at san juan city?

    thanks in advance

    any greeen book at all at bautista?

    i went to the acgme website
    and i do not see san juan bautista medical center under the list of accredited sponsors. so im under the impression that nothing at bautista is green.
    any suggestions?

    San Juan Bautista isn't greenbook but they register you as a visiting student at their school (which is LCME approved). LCME is what all schools in the US are.

    Greenbook would definitely be the best but it seems like LCME would be right behind it.

    In my opinion, Greenbook > LCME visiting student > Bluebook

    i know that texas licensure specifically states that the rotation has to be greenbook or you have to do a rotation as a visiting student at a LCME site... so in their eyes, greenbook = lcme visiting student rotation .... i figure that if lcme is good enough for texas licensure (one of the hardest in the US), I don't think other states should give you a problem, whereas many states will see that you did bluebook and reject you right away

    my 2 cents, hope it helped

    now thats tough to say.... my coordinator let me choose to take ob/gyn, peds, or IM

    I chose OB/gyn because as of now thats the field I'm least interested in and we don't have very many greenbook spots in OB [ only 2 green - wycoff and san juan city, and 2 AOA(which i dont wanna do) ]

    If I like the rotation then I'll prob end up doing peds down in PR as well because spots are so limited in it as well

    Also, keep in mind these are my opinions/theories from doing a lot of research (the real test will be when we apply for residency). I don't see any reason why our San Juan bautista rotation could be denied (but I could be wrong). In my personal opinion, I'd rather do IM in the US because it is such a big part of step 2 and there are a lot of IM residency spots in the US. However, I don't know anyone that has done IM in puerto rico but it could be an even better experience than you could get in the states, who knows.... I'm going to test out the water and see what type of experience I get and if I like it, I'll prob end up doing 1 or 2 more there if I'm getting a lot out of it

    pr

    I dont see why Pr rotations would be denied... they are lcme accredited rotations. From what i hear pr prepares you well for CS and not so much for Ck
    But i know many people who have done all of their rotations int he states and they feel that even the rotations that they send us to in the states dont really even prepare you well. From what i hear, you have to do alot of studying on your own before step 2 anyway.
    But yea.. if I like what im getign out of it at bautista ill stay for more rotations. Everyone i know so far has liked it there. so i dont see why i wouldnt either.
