    electives

    Advertisements



    I have just gotten a couple of cores down, however, I have gaps in between these cores. My question is can I now schedule my own electives without having any cores down yet...although I will have a couple of cores down by the time I start my cores. Do I then report it to my advisor? thanks...btw, is everyone else having problems getting peds?

    My understanding is that there are some electives you can complete without the core (anesthesia before surg, for example). If you complete the internal medicine core, then you can do IM electives. I may be wrong, but this is how I understood it. Just make sure you apply for them early enough because some hospitals require a few weeks in advance.

    I'm not a Ross student but there has been lots of feedback from current students waiting for peds. If you do a search you'll find them.
