    Ross clinicals

    Advertisements



    I got an email from a person at Ross. This was in response to several questions I had about the clinical probelms.
    It sounded like they admit there were problems in the PAST and that things have changed!
    Is this true?
    are there more rotation spots?

    Ross Clinicals

    I would say that this is partially correct. In July or August of 2008, Ross will takeover Caritas, and I think Wyckoff as well, taking over the clinical spots that were allocated to AUC. This means that there will be more rotation spots for students. The clinical dept. is also working on getting clinical sites outside of New York. My only concern is how well the clinicals are actually preparing us for usmle step 2. I have heard in the past that the pass rate for usmle step 2 is low (about 75%)....but I am not sure. Most of the clinical sites are good in terms of practical medicine, but they really do not prepare you for board exams and obtaining clinical knowledge.

    Thats because its your job to prepare yourself for the Step 2. You don't expect the professors to cover everything in the books that will be on the Step 1 do you? Most of it is the student's job. This builds autonomy. The same goes for step 2. Clinicals will give you a taste, but its your job to do all the required bookwork at home after work daily, and before taking the test. Its this way in US schools as well.

    Does anyone want my Peds Rotation

    Hi
    I am scheduled to do Peds end of Aug to beginning of October 08 in Chicago Jackson Park. However I want to do Step 2 CK by October 1st.....plus I also want to do my Residency in PEds so i need to do it earlier bf step2 and not have it as my last core...so if there is anyone with an earlier date who would like to exchange I would be more than happy to do so. The location doesn't really matter to me....just the date...ANYTIME starting before Aug 31st.

    Ross's Peds shortage is screwing me over

    Please Respond if u don't mind exchanging.....esp if u r not matching for 2010!!!

    So there are more choices for Ross University other than MI and FL? How did you receive the one in Chicago?

    Southern Regional - Atlanta GA

    Anybody truly know the facts on this site? Ross is starting to send alot of us in Atlanta over to this hospital. I have a friend from AUA who did their Surgery Core here and they were not even allowed in the OR. She says AUA no longer even rotates here because of the problems. NJ is saying that California is ok with these rotations but Ross has not even provided the information for California to review. I am worried about being the 1st of anything with Ross because of my experience in the Bahamas. The physician I am working with now also said the hospital is not safe for any student. Please someone give me some true feedback about this clinical site!!!!

    Is there are thread that ranks RUSOM's clinical sites?
    Also, is there a thread that outlines how to prepare yourself in Sem1-5 to obtain a great clinical site?

    Thanks
