    clerkship grades/honors grades of any benefit for caribbean students?

    Advertisements



    I have come across this type of info regarding factors involved in Residency selections(outside of USMLE scores).







    • Grades in required clerkships are the most important academic criteria used to select residents.
    • “Number of honors clerkship grades” was the second most important academic criteria used to select residents in the most competitive specialties.
    • Clerkship grades are the major determinant of class rank. The most competitive specialties rate class rank among the three most important selection criteria.
    • Clerkship grades are a major factor used by schools in electing students to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society (AOA). Election to AOA is highly valued by many competitive specialties. In some programs, and in some specialties such as dermatology, membership in AOA is used as a screening tool to determine which applicants are even considered for interviews





    My question is,


    1) are clerkship grades valued even when you are a caribbean/foreign medical student? Or does this apply to only medical students of US schools?

    This is all you need to know about how different programs view different things.

    3.5, no failing classes - it's in the student handbook found online. Doesn't really have much affect on antyhing in the long run though.
