    Jagiellonian, SABA, or UMHS

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I've been accepted to UMHS, SABA and Jagiellonian for Sept. 2011. I'm a Canadian who would like to come back to North America for my residency, and am wondering which school would make that transition the least complicated. Anyone have any thoughts or advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    To allow yourself the most options for residency, your best choices of the three are SABA and Jag. (You probably already know that UMHS doesn't have CA-approval, meaning that there is a list of states where you can't do residency or practice.)

    I would choose Jag because of its outstanding location and the EU diploma, which allows for easier practice options in Europe if you ever want to live there for a while. However, I have nothing bad to say about SABA, and there is certainly a big advantage to completing ALL of your rotations in the US. Either one can get you there, and you have to go through ECFMG either way.

    I agree with devildoc. Either one will get you where you want to go. Personally I chose the European route over the Caribbean for various reasons and I'm definitely glad I did.

    I know those various reasons, but to the OP you have to make sure the school is prepping you for the step, if ur main goal is to work in the us
