    New York residency and IMG graduates

    Advertisements



    If one has not done any rotations in the state of New York, can they still apply to residencies in NY? Isn't there a requirement of doing 12 weeks (ACGME) minimum for an IMG or is that false? If so, does this have to be a core rotation?

    Hey Fellow UMHSer! I think for you to do residency in NY, your school needs to be NY approved. That probably explains why no one from UMHS has matched in NY (yet). I am assuming you are applying for the 2018 match. If that's the case, cross your fingers that UMHS gets its' NY approval before you apply. All the best!

    I do not believe you have to do rotations in NY to apply to NY residencies. I interviewed with many people at NY programs who did not do any rotations in the US. However, NYS does not allow you to complete more than 12 weeks of rotations outside of your medical school's country, unless your school is excluded with special approval.

    You are right in that you don't have to do rotations in NY to match into NY.
    BUT, your school has to be NY approved for you to MATCH in NY AND for you to do more than 12 weeks rotation in NY.
    If your school is NY approved, then it doesn't matter if you did your rotations in NY or not.
