    Elective rotations before core rotations?

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I am wondering if any of you completed any elective rotations before completing core rotations? I think I remember circumstance while waiting for a core, some students went ahead and did an elective. Let me know if this is possible, and if you don't mind sharing, the location at which you did it. thanks

    you're going to SGU you won't have this problem Coralis. your 3rd year will consist of your core rotations and 4th year or electives like the canadain and US med students. some hospitals will offer a required 3rd year elective (those hospitals will be labeled) and you can schedule only an elective in someting you completed a core in, or you can just take the time off like an extra vacation. so techinically it's not a required elective but just some elective time scheduled into your 3rd year.

    I was just speaking with a friend of mine that goes to Western Virginia DO school, and she is doing a family practice elective during 3rd yr.. like during november, december. I don't even think it is a greenbook rotation. Can DO schools do this and not have trouble with licensure?

    DO rotations are never green booked. they're blue booked.
