    MD. versus DO clinical rotations.

    Advertisements



    This question is aimed at those in the know, maybe even Dr. Perri. I was just wondering after reading that Pennsylvania requires that all clinical rotations be MD. and not DO. what does that mean. Does it mean the person in charge of the Rotation is an MD. Does it mean the Administrator of the hospital is an MD. How can you tell which of Ross clinical rotations will allow you to set up a practice in Pennsylvania or any other state with the same requirements?
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.

    It means how the program is accredited. some programs are dual accredited. Here are the DO residencies in PA

    PA licensing

    The law in PA states that 72 (? I think my numbers here are right but you might wanna double check them) weeks MUST be done at ACGME accredited sites. This is the equivalent of saying MD rotations as any DO rotations are not ACGME accredited they are AOCGME (or some similar type acronym). What this all means is that coming from Ross you may do no more then 8 weeks at a DO site. As for Azskeptics link I am not sure how that enters into it as it is a list of PA DO sites but Ross students can not rotate in ANY PA sites. They can apply for residencies in PA but can not do rotations there. No FMGs can.

    so you are saying that PA is out for foreign students? Here is the place to find ACGME sites

    re

    PA has the most stringent rules, but not out for FMGs.
    I think to get licensed in PA you need to have been at the same school for 3 years and if you're an allopathic student you have to have attended ACGME rotations.

    DO students have to attend their own rotations and then do some sort of DO internship if they are to practice in PA.

    Some states allow for mixing between the two, ie a DO rotation is seen as the equivalent as a MD rotation, but PA keeps it pretty much seperated I believe.

    That's what Im saying

    Yep PA is OUT for FMG STUDENTS. Not necesarrily out for FMG GRADS. In other words you can do residencies there but no rotations neither core nor elective.
    Jersey across the river will let you do cores but not electives. So your stuck going to MD or NY if your from the region. DE only has a few teaching hospitals and I don't know of anyone doing student rotations there but I would imagine it's possible. But come on man, It's DE

    MD v DO Rotations

    Here's is a list of allopathic v. osteopathic rotations with Ross. I got this list last summer when I started rotations, so it may not be the most up-to-date version.

    New Jersey

    Babydaddy75:
    You indicated New Jersy will let you do Core rotations and not Electives. That doesn't make sence because SGU uses St. Barnabus Hospital AIn Livingston and students can do all of their clinical rotations within the St. Barnabus hospitals which are all located in New Jersey. I wish Ross had more hospitals in New Jersey. They seem to have most of their hospitals in tne Ne York "slums".
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
