    Whats the worst case scenario..if you don't attend ACGME rotations

    Advertisements



    I think my title says it all...but just to repose the same thing. What's the worst thing that can/will happen if you don't attend the GREEN / ACGME rotations?

    I am being offered some rotations that are BLUE, but i am sure they are better than some of the green rotations being offered to me. I would like to attend thos blue rotations, but want to be informed about the consequences.

    My situation is that i am canadian and therefore, will require a visa to do my residency.

    Your input will be tremendously appreciated.

    hey Steph,

    no no...the BLUE rotations that i am getting are provided by my school...so they do count them as my clinical rotation. I should be able to graduate...I don't have clue about license and practice business though. Can anyone fill me in on that. Where can i go to find out more???

    blue rotations (rotations in a place that has a family practice residency) are ok in most states...there are only a handfull that require all of them to be green, texas is one of them and pennsylvania maybe another but blue or FP umbrella rotations are ok with cali and most others

    reason why blue rotations are ok with most is that the FP residents rotate through various specialties and in order for a site to remain accredited in FP they must ensure academic oversight and follow curricula for the rotations the fp residents go through

    Yeah, i shall be rotating with FSU students. My FM, Surg and Ob-GYN rotations are green, but IM, Psych and Peds are not Green.

    Do you think this would be OK. My only issue is i am Canadian and i might need a visa for a residency.

    I don't wanna have trouble in obtaining license beside having to deal with VISA.

    I just want some advice if this is a good idea to follow (ie. do blue rotations)

    doing blue rotations will be ok in most states, just know texas and possibly 1-2 others maybe out. why don;t you call 5-10 states you plan on applying for residency and ask them if all rotations need to be green?

    it doesnt matter if the school provides them. some states require all green. period. sure you will graduate with the blue ones. but the states wont recognize it and thus in their mind youre short you md by that amount of credits.

    the reason i had ................ was because i posted a thing about what 20 of the more strict states require in terms of green book and non green book, but the post didn't go through right, i got frustrated, and just deleted it. besides, there have been posts about this topic before, and specifically which states, just do a search.
