    re: Canadian Clinicals after basic sciences as IMG

    Advertisements



    Hey all,

    I'm a first termer at SGU, and am wondering about how clinicals work if I wish to do some in Canada.

    Any kind of info about the advantages/disadvantages would help me out alot.

    I've been hearing alot of buzz about this, but most of it is rumor so far....


    Cheers,

    Silenthunder

    Hey it would be a good idea if you contacted some of the hospitals/universities you are interested in arranging a clinical rotation with. I'm not sure if you can get core rotations but you can certainly get electives. I spoke with U of T and they said they would be happy to place me in a hospital for a rotation of my choice - upto 12 weeks.

    So i know it's possible...

    re: clinicals

    Hi,

    I know that U. of Western Ontario also allows you to do your electives as well as some core rotations such as gyn and psychiatry for up to 12 weeks.

    heres the scoop

    I know UofT and Mac allow foreign students to do up to 8 or 12 weeks (cant remember exactly) of rotations at their sites. I imagine most of the universities would be the same. They can not be core rotations....they are electives (makes sense that they would want you to have some experience in prerequisite areas first!) . They are given on a first come first serve basis, so apply early. All the info can be found on their websites.

    The other factor in the equation is the rules of your own medical school. I cant speak for all schools, but at St. George's University, they will only allow students to do 2 elective rotations (check yourself to make sure...I could be wrong) at UNAFFILIATED hospitals. That includes Canadian hospitals....and the school would allow you to go there.

    The other question to ask is if it is a wise decision. Generally, students like to use those unafilliated electives to rotate at hospitals that they are applying to for residency. In fact it is almost the 'rule' that you do an elective at an unafilliated hospital if you plan on applying to their program. So the question is, do you want to 'waste' an elective in Canada or use it for residency opportunities?

    I personally want to do a rotation at UofT or Mac, but havent decided completely yet based on the "residency opportunity" theory.

    Take care
