    KMCIC 6 year MD

    Advertisements



    What is the acceptance rate at KMCIC for 6 year MD? And what are the things they look for?

    I heard that the students at KMCIC party a lot. They don't focus on studies. Is it true?

    Our general acceptance rate is about 80% of the students that we interview. Our average incoming student to the 6-year MD program has a 3.60 GPA and an SAT / ACT in the 75th percentile.

    Students who want to party will party wherever they are. I'd suggest you have your priorities set prior to going off to any university in the US or anywhere else.

    Mr. Tipton,
    Appreciate your answer to the following questions.

    What is the drop out rate in each year and the semester exam pass rate at KMCIC?
    What is the waiting period for getting into 5th semester clinical rotations after completing ** at AUA OR KMCIC, wating period for getting into core and elective clinical rotations? I am seeing lot of negative comments in this blog about clinical rotations.

    Also, AUA website says no more clinicals at Baltimore from Sep 2009. What is the reason clinicals not offered at Baltimore? Did AUA lost approval in MD?

    We usually assume approx 15% attrition during the first 2 semesters. Not sure exactly what the attiriton rate is in Manipal. Probably similar however.

    Promotion into the "5th Semester" (now Family Practice I / Internal Medicine I | AUA) is based on academic progress. There is no waiting period for that. We are fully aware of the wait times our students are dealing with now. I don't have any new information.

    Not sure why you think our students are no longer in Baltimore. We did cancel the Family Practice 1 / Internal Medicine 1 Semester there. But we continue to maintain Clinical Affiliations in Baltimore: Hospital Affiliations | AUA

    Thank you Mr. Tipton for your response.

    Do you mind answering the below questions?

    Why the wait times are more for AUA students for clinical rotations?
    Why the Family Practice 1 / Internal Medicine 1 Semester is canceled at Baltimore hospital/s?

    How many KMCIC students have enrolled and sucessfully completed "Family Practice 1 / Internal Medicine 1 Semester" in the years 2009 and 2010? How many of them got in to clinical rotations?

    I saw in AUA site, it gives a number for AUA as a whole for the years 2007/2008/2009. (For the year 2009, the title just above the pie-chart says 2008 , is it correct?). I am looking for the numbers that pertained to those who completed their ** at KMCIC only.

    Advance thanks for your response.

    The wait time in Clinicals is a combination of the quickly growing student body and contractual issues we had with some of our affiliated hospitals. Of course this is why we have revamped the Clinical Department and recruited Dr. B to take over.

    No idea why we don't have 5th Sem in Baltimore. We have 5 other great sites though.

    I don't have specific numbers of how many students who began in KMCIC have passed Step 1. My impression from what students tell me is they feel very well prepared for the exam particularly when they come back and compare themselves with other students.

    We have at least 2 KMCIC students graduating and beginning Residency in 2010:
    -IM (began at KMCIC then completed Basic Sciences in Antigua)
    -OB/GYN (one of the inaugural class at KMCIC)

    Supposedly another KMCIC student I think is taking a year to pad her resume with research experience for a future Match.

    In case you're wondering, we began with 4 students at KMCIC in 2005.

    If anyone's curious one of them will be at our Info Seminar on Sunday in New Brunswich, NJ.

    Thank you Mr.Tipton.

    Do you think the wait time for clinicals will improve in the coming months?

    I saw the latest residency match at AUA website ( I could not post the link as I have low post count) and I am impressed by the results.

    What is the count of AUA/KMCIC students matched?

    Congratulations to all who got matched.

    I don't have any new, specific info about clinicals. But yes, I am optimistic.

    The 2 KMCIC students I know of for sure I mentioned above. I'll have a chance to maybe learn more this weekend in New Brunswick.

    Of the 4 most senior students who began at KMCIC 3 are graduating (1, pre-match, 1 match, 1 waiting at least one more year to do research and improve her odds of matching in a competitive specialty) 1 more graduating next year since he took a bunch of time to prepare for Step 1.
