    Whats going on with clinical rotations

    Advertisements



    Some people have mentioned that the clinicals are backed up right now. Do some students have waiting periods because of there Step 1 score. I think that some hospitals are score specific. Are there too many students? Whats really going on

    excellent inquiry

    I present an analogy:

    New school with a huge debt (huge investment) needs stellar records. For example, if you are start a new vineyard, you have to handpick the vines for a few years, and let the popularity for your vineyard rise.
    Eventually all the grapes will be used, however, some before others?
    Will the grapes on hold succumb to degradation?
    Can free samples ($) of the grape to distributors help increase the name?

    All in all, this new vineyard needs a lot of purchasing power. I see a great potential for future generation with this new vineyard.

    What he means is, the school AUA should be seeing as a school that'll potentially give more money back in return. Basically people should invest in the school, this will mean more clinical spots for students.

    Wait....so now AUA is gonna have a winemaking school on the Antigua Campus? I hope they get federal loans for that.

    how about asking this ques to the schools admin directly...I think that's better than making another useless thread about the clinicals...

    Is not the score, is the fact AUA has alot of students, there is alot of my friends who are with me in chicago at present time, it took them around 6 month, my suggestion, get job make some money study for step II till rotations starts.
