    SGU vs Ross (clinical training)

    Advertisements



    I have done some research about both schools (SGU & Ross), both of them are good schools....the only different is SGU integrated some clinical training in every semester in the first two years...so how about Ross, is the clinical training enough? Final question, is it worth to pay $20000 more to go to SGU because of the clinical training? Thanks

    clinicals

    i thought you were going to compare clinical years 3 and 4. I think SGU has clinical "campuses" which you can live at? You don't even have to move and just stay in 1 spot for 2 years.

    clinical

    Clinical training does not begin until 3rd year at both Ross and SGU. The clinical part in the first two years at SGU is not like the 3rd and 4th year. It is a preparation for the 3rd and 4th year.
    If you go to Ross, the semester in Miami is a preparation for the clinical years.

    ICM

    4th semester Ross has a class called ICM, intro to clinical medicine. 3rd semester we have behavioral science which you do some patient interviewing but it would be a strech to call that clinical experience.

    My 2 cents

    Just wanted to add that at Ross there are student organizations that provide some clinical experience in semester 1-4 i.e. AMSA does a health fair for the locals, when I left the Muslim Student Assoc. was working on a clinic near the school you could work at similar to the Salybia Mission Project which runs clinics out in the Carib Territory. These were allways fun weekends and usually great for getting some hands on experience.

    clical training

    just a correction- there is clinical training at sgu in year two that's formal (and the reason we go to the island of st vincent's then). Its not a part of our "80 weeks" of core clinical rotations and acgme electives, but there is a formal clinical component (as well as less structured stuff earlier in grenada)
