    This is not true. I know a student who has scheduled her own core through a non-affiliated hospital. AUA is having such a prob with rotations right now that they will let you schedule anything you want on your. You have to email/call/visit a hospital and speak with the medical education director or residency director and work something out. Its really not that hard as long as the hospital is IMG friendly. Just note that NY state only allows 12 weeks non-affiliated in order to apply for a licence.

    really?

    i was under the impression that this sort of thing couldn't be done due to licensure issues. so did this hospital become some sort of official affiliate?

    Why would people said that AUA is having problems with clinical rotations? Do you really know whats going on? Problems, like what?

    The problems AUA students are having is getting the clinicals they want at the place they want them, at the order they want, and time they want.

    Well, hello. Thats not the way it works. You get what they can offer you, not what you want. AUA is a new school and they are still working on having more spots for clinicals, but you can not choose and pick wherever you want. You have to go with what they can offer you, otherwise you are going to wait. Those are the problems AUA is having.

    AUA is having problems with picky people. Just get what they can give you at the order they can. Theres no cherry picking here. THis is frustruated when people make comments when they don't even know the other side of the story.

    Hey iwanabmd!
    I didn't know that was possible either! I also assumed only electives were accepted from non affiliated institutions...

    Is that 12 weeks of cores? Or total with electives?

    I've heard that same thing many times over but have yet to find a medical board who actually has stated this to me. Unfortunately I also have yet to find a hospital willing to take a student from a non-affiliated school that isn't in his/her final year of rotations.

    HAHAHA. Maybe you're lucky? But I'm currently IN rotations at the moment (internal med) and I can't get a follow up (core) rotation. Electives are easy. You set them up on your own and don't even deal with AUA. But I've told them I want to get any core rotation confirmed, for any month, in any location! And still I'm only on "standby"
