    about ross clinicals...

    Advertisements



    are ross students given their clinical rotation sites for both cores and electives, or do you have to approach hospitals on your own for them?

    Ross has their affiliated list of hospitals. You will be assigned both your cores and electives once a student gets to that point. Generally you take a look at the list and decide what geographic area you want to do your rotations at and you put in the request to the clinical department. Most of the time, you will get rotations at the geographic location you request if there is space. Getting rotations by approaching hospitals on your own is doable, but you have to be careful because if you are trying to rotate at a non-affiliate, you have to make sure the rotation is Green Book (ACGME) approved. Most of the students who get non-affiliate rotations on their own do so for electives. It is tough to come across a hospital on your own that will allow you to do cores at their facility. The exception to this is if you know someone higher up at a facility who will let you in. I know of a few people who have done this. I am doing a non-affiliate core for peds in November. Again, you must be sure that if you do this, the facility is ACGME approved.

    Tennisman, you say you are doing a non-affiliate core for Peds...are there any states that will have licensing issues if you do a core at a non-affiliated hospital? I have an "in" at a couple in the NYC area that are Green-book and if I could do that for Peds that would be great!

    I don't know about all States, but I only did research into the California Medical Board. They told me that I'd be fine the with non-affiliate core I had scheduled. They're policy is that as long as it is not a DO rotation, as long as it is ACGME Greenbook or Greenbook under the Family Medicine umbrella, I would then be ok for licensure. I am not sure about other States. Call up the State medical boards for the states you wish to practice in and inquire with them just to be on the safe side.

    Seriously, do that. Certainly don't listen to anything on here about your licensure. If you miss something b/c you read it on here instead of from the state board, it's usually realllllllllllllly hard to fix it.
