    Away electives in south NJ, north PA?

    Advertisements



    I need to finish up my "Away electives" between Feb-April next year to make graduation on time and thus Residency. Due some life changes I really need to do them close to Phili. Has anyone done away electives in North Penn or South Jersey? Can you PM me the details?

    ANyone done any rotations in New Jersey or Pennsylvania?

    i don't think we can do any electives in NJ. NJ doesn't allow foreign schools to do rotations in NJ...

    Med200,
    Thanks for the info, I will make some calls today and find out.

    PradeepK,
    I think you may be right. I also wonder if that applies to PA because I already ran into a wall with one of the local Philli hospitals. The Director was very nice but told me something about the rotations not being accepted once I apply for residency because...something about LCME...I forgot. But anyways it came down to a red tape thing and she made it seem it applied to the entire state when it came to FMGs. But maybe she just isn't as familiar with the FMG stuff...who knows?

    Looks like Drexel is out....and maybe the entire state of PA as well. Drexel does allow visiting students but this was in the online form:

    All students must be enrolled in an Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accredited medical school (United States or Canadian) and in or beginning the final (senior) year of medical school. Please refer to current directory of LCME-accredited schools published by the AAMC

    NJ is out as well. I have called or e-mailed most of the NJ hospitals. The response is always the same... "We are sorry, but our affiliations do not permit us to allow you to rotate here" AKA St. George has bought exclusive rights so that only their students can rotate in NJ. For those from NJ... St. George specifically owns the St. Barnabas healthcare system which has about 3 or 4 of the teaching hospitals. I have never receieved a response from UMDNJ or RWJUH, but I doubt they would.

    i could be wrong, but i remember hearing something about NJ not allowing foreign medical students to do rotations in NJ.. but SGU and ROSS still have some contracts so only till be allowed until their contracts run out...

    There is no law about NJ not allowing IMG's to do rotations. The reason you don't hear about it is that SGU has bought exclusive rights to most hospitals. Anything they missed ROSS snatched up or perhaps got some spots before it was exclusive.
