    New Elective Rotations in India

    Advertisements



    I think rotations in Manipal sound like an exciting opportunity but as a rookie clinical student (starting 1st rotation next week) I'm still learning all the clinical rules, implications, lingo, etc.

    To the experienced clinical students...any thoughts/concerns/questions I should ask the clinical dept about this new affiliation aside from language barrier? Or should I just say, "sign me up!" coz we all know months of waiting isn't fun...

    Thanks!

    Got it through my AUA email earlier this afternoon sent by Dr. P.B. It was sent out to Clinical 5-10 students so check out your AUA email in case you haven't gotten the chance yet.

    US clinical experience is pretty imperative when applying for residency. some programs have specific requirements to the amount of USCE you need. just be aware of this when you start taking rotations outside of the country (including Canada).

    you need 6 month 24 weeks but to be on the safe side make it 30 weeks of USCE to be on the safe side. 6 month USCE is required. Also I have checked this with licensing boards and programs, UK, CAD clinical are considered greenbook , and Canadian Clinical rotations are considered, But again do 30 weeks in US at least and make sure is ACGME approved for the rotations your doing it in

    i wasn't necessarily talking about licensing when i said Canadian, i was speaking specifically of the USCE required by some programs for residency. i've talked to a few PDs who said they don't count Canadian rotations when it comes to the clinical experience they require.

    bottom line, you want to match in the US, do your rotations in the US. otherwise you won't be much different than much of those FMGs with 99/99 and no USCE

    OOh yes, offcourse, USCE is number one and that what makes us different then other FMG the 99/99/99 ones

    Maybe it's not a bad idea to do electives in India after you have entered the match and finished the interviews. correct?

    Question: does anyone know if it would pose a problem once trying to get a state's medical license, however? I know some are very picky with the greenbook/non greenbook rotations. But if it does pose a problem, how do these FMG's manage to get their license with not even a single greenbook rotation?
