    Doing electives in NY

    Advertisements



    Can anyone confirm or deny that if you do an elective in NY it has to be green if you want to get a license in the state of NY one day. Also, that if you do a non-green elective in other state its ok. This rule seems really weird. Any input would be great.

    I know they aren't required, but NY has that crazy "green within the state of NY" law for cores so I was wondering if it applied for electives.

    Technically yes, you are supposed to only do Green rotations in the State of NY, as per our NYS Dept of Education letter. However, I know for a fact that at Wyckoff Hospital, anything goes (since they have non-green rotations which students are in). I was a bit confused about that as well. Not sure if they fall under some "AOA umbrella" or some other loophole Wyckoff found. For example, I'm not really sure how Radiology at Wyckoff is green. Maybe they have 1 resident coming through Wyckoff for rads every once in a while? Who knows.

    should be AOA approved or ACGME

    When I was looking into this question, I spoke with Mary at the State Board of Medicine of NY. She told me that all cores and electives should be approved by either the ACGME or a similar accrediting body which includes the American Osteopathic Association. So these AOA rotations that are referred to as "bluebook" rotations are allowed for licensure by the state of NY. She told me that this policy includes electives, but I have not heard anybody else being told this. I did all of my cores and electives green because of this and to be licensed in Pennsylvania in the future. Many of my friends have checked and did not come away thinking the same as me. I would call the state board to be sure.
