    Question: Starting 5th semester (AICM/IMF) in Sept in Fl. Can I make 2016 Match?

    I am considering transferring into Ross (5th semester) for the Sept. AICM/IMF class and wanted to know if it is possible to make the 2016 Match. I already passed the Step 1. Thanks!

    It would be REALLY tight but could be done as long as you get scheduled and actually start right away (A lot of rotations have 1 start date so unless you're on that date you have to wait). I wouldn't count on it.

    I'm starting my track rotations on Sept 1st and it is already tight for me to graduate on time and I would not be able to take any time off except maybe 2 weeks for Step 2 CK and CS. For me, I have completed 9 weeks AICM in April so that leaves me 81 weeks to complete and I'm in a track program which would schedule me to complete 44 weeks of core back to back without any gap and I will be done with cores early July 2015 when ERAS 2016 application will open. After the cores, I have 37 weeks of electives remaining and if I'm lucky that my electives are scheduled back to back, I would be done with electives end of March 2016. Anticipated graduation date is April 1, 2016.

    To match for 2016 residency, you must graduate by end of May to be ECFMG certified by June 30th before residency starts on July 1st; that process takes 30 days -- knowing Ross, it may take longer than that. So after you finish your IMF, you will have 84 weeks left. Of that, you have 44 weeks core and 40 weeks of electives. Track rotations would get you to do all cores back to back without break however if you are on non-track rotations, it would be tough to get everything scheduled back to back without any gaps but it's doable. Do your math, you won't start your rotations until Mid-Oct/November and you'd have to factor in the time for moving across the country to your assigned hospital.

    Good luck!
