    Rotations delay

    Advertisements



    hey guys
    I'm considering transferring to AUA but I'm not sure about the whole delay thing. My first credit course was at 2008 and if I transfer I have to graduate within 7 years since the first credit I earned according to ECFMG regulations, therefore I have to graduate before early 2015.
    I'll be transferring into 5th semester and starting my clinical rotations right after ICM because I already passed step 1
    Is the rotations delay still a problem ? it's very critical for me to know that because otherwise I'll never graduate if I transferred to AUA.

    From my experience, it'll take you anywhere from 3-6 months to get your first rotation. But once you start your rotations, you can get them back to back (not cores).

    was it because of credentials ? or because there wasn't a spot at your preferred state ? or they didn't have spots at all ?

    I'm not sure. You usually have to wait anywhere from 45 to 120 days (about 1.5 to 4 months) AFTER getting credentialed to start rotations. I would think it's because AUA doesn't have many spots. Lot of people, like myself, usually don't have any state requirements and it still takes really long.

    Getting credentialed is a hassle on its own.
