    ?Way to get a slot?

    Advertisements



    hi. I am currently studying for Step2CK and I have already applied elective rotation in Providence in MI. But I haven't heard anything from them yet. Only reply I got was that they are still processing my application. I just want to ask any of you who are in Elective rotation. Did you have to apply multiple sites to get a slot? Do you think I should apply several other sites? I really want to start my rotaion right after my exam, July 1st...

    thanx

    No, you have to go through Providence, the woman there handles everything for Providence, St. John, and Henry Ford for AUC students. If you missed my post before, all electiove applications got thrown in the trash without being processed a few weeks ago, and no one who was not a Providence core student was notified. If you are in this category, you will need to reapply. And don't expect to hear anything anytime soon... even students here are being told they won't know until perhaps 2 weeks before their rotation starts.

    Just so you know.

    Thanx. I read your previous Thread but I got worried if Providence would have enough opening for me... I got reply from the lady today from Providence and told me that she reviewed my application and non-core students won't be considered till the end of June. (I don't like it but cannot do anything). I should also apply for other sites in other states I guess, just to make sure I will get a seat for elective in July.
    Thanx tRmedic21 !!

    P.S. Any site suggestions??

    you should explain, we always heard that scheduling at providence was easy so i didn;t worry much. the person who schedules the rotations took leave and was supposed to return within a month so they did not replace her...the return date kept getting pushed and pushed until it was almost 3 months and then it was only half days and no overtime to get caught up.

    the hospital handled this very poorly from our standpoint and hopefully get it together soon.

    for anyone scheduling electives you should schedule 2 rotations at different sites for the same time and then just cancel out your backup if you don't need it. i scheduled IM in saginaw and it saved my entire step 2 schedule.. even if providence falls apart i am confirmed at cook county, michigan state, and waiting on wayne state for electives so always have a backup...
