    Fellowships before ROS?

    Advertisements



    If an IMG has signed an ROS and wants to do a fellowship after 3 years of IM, how does that work with fulfilling the ROS obligation? If you're allowed to do a fellowship, how does that work if your specialty has no employment needs in any underserved areas? Are you forced to work as a general internist?

    Core GIM is 3 years. Then you go into subspecialty training is 1 year for GIM (may become 2), cardiology is 3 years, critical care 2 years as a few examples. These still count as "residency" and you are still technically a resident (in Ontario at any rate).

    A fellowship is like doing interventional/EP after cardiology or motility after GI.

    The answer to every and any ROS question is another question:

    What does your contract say?

    Some contracts specify what field you must practice in e.g. GIM or hematology or whatever, or specify when you must begin practice e.g. four years from beginning residency, five years, etc. etc. Some may not.

    Read your contract. If it doesn't say, talk to he/she/it who wrote it and ask. Anything else is just guessing.
