    wondering if i can get my own peds rotation somewhere in new york? is it possible? any one know of any hospitals that allow it? i have a decent gpa and step score ... so i just need a hospital that has done it in the past ...

    any thoughts?

    Are you trying to get a non-affiliated rotation? There are some in NY that offer peds that are affiliated. (St. Barnabas, St. John's Episcopal, Wyckoff Heights)

    not wise to to do cores at a non affliated place...you will have licensing issues later down the road...

    in terms of licensing if you dont plan on practicing in i think NY, TX, Cali, or NJ i think you would be fine. NY only allows up to 12 weeks of ELECTIVES to be non-affiliated, and if they are done in another NY hospital must be Greenbook, however if not they dont need to be...(weird i know)

    his question wasn't about ACGME rotations, but non- med school (in this case ross) affliated CORES...true its probably the sticky states that have issues about this...but you never know who is gonna be added to the sticky list...i mean last year Ark wasn't a picky state, and now it is... as it stands now schools like SMU that are disapproved by cali can't practice in ~ 25% of the US...who knows how big that list will become in the next 5-10 years?
