    Best Clinical Sites

    Advertisements



    I have heard a lot of good and bad stuff about each clinical rotation sites. However, I would like everyone's opinion as to which one is THE BEST ONE? Which one has the best reputation and the one that everyone competes to go to from Ross?

    It really depends. I am origianlly from the Chicago area and did all of my cores in New York. I heard of the rivalry between new york and boston, fut they flat out hate people from the mid-west. Every single hospital dogged us from the mid west to death. The problem is that most Ross sites are in the ny area, so if you are from there you are set.One girl in my class was smart and told people she was "from across the river" when asked where she was from and everyone left her alone. My advice is if you get any hospital in the ny area and you are not from there do everything in your power to get away. pm me if you need any more info.

    rotations

    One of my very best friends just finished the clinical program. He did rotations in New York, New Jersey, and in Maryland. He says hands-down that his experiences in the Maryland hospitals were the best.

    baltimore rotations

    Just out of curiosity how many core and elective rotations can be done at Ross affiliated hospitals in Baltimore and are there additional non- Ross affiliated ASGME hospitals that a Ross student can do clinicals. If so how does one go about getting clinicals in non-ross hospitals?
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    Singer, I dont mean to sound like a jerk, but this is something you MUST find out from the school. Where you do your rotations is that important. There used to be a different message board when I was stuck on that toilet, but it was the same thing. People went to the msg board rather than go to the website or make a call. When you first hit the floors, nobody is going to work for you. My point being is this. If you rely on me to tell you point a, you are going to miss poits b,c,d...People here may not know all of the hoispitals available, so if you hear about 1 or 2, that 3rd that you didnt find out about can be a goldmine. That is EXACTLY what happened in my case. I barely got my 2.6 to get off the rock, came within points of failing step 1, did so-so on step 2, but was happy where I did my electives which turned me into the golden child. I ended up impressing the right people because of my attitiude, and got my first choice in the match in a fantastic anesthesiology program. Do you see what I am saying? Just keep it in mind. Nobody on the net or in class will answer your questions about YOUR future better than a phone call to NY. That being said, and because I feel bad for being a jerk about this, here is the info, from thier site:

    http://www.rossmed.edu/Medical_Schoo...iliations.html

    THIS has all of the hospitals. I also heard that more are coming down the pike in CA, but again, just call and find out for that info, as I said I just heard it.

    baltimore and vicinity

    To answer your questions...(sometimes, calling Ross in NJ, can be EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING)...

    Baltimore Hospitals

    Harbor Hospital: Internal Medicine, and tons of electives
    St.Agnes: IM and surgery, many electives incl. orthopedics
    Union Memorial: electives, (Ross used to have surgery here, but they didn't like Ross students)
    Maryland General Hospital: tons of electives
    Spring Grove Hospital: psychiatry core and elective (if wanted)

    Washington and vicinity

    Prince George County Hospital: IM and a few electives
    St.Elizabeth's: Psychiatry, and Peds(<--double check on this).
    NIH: electives (see NIH website for more info).

    In summary, IM and Psych are the cores you can be guaranteed to get (though spots are limited for each session). Surgery at St.Agnes is not impossible but difficult to get a spot at. Other cores will probably have to be done in NY, NJ, IL or OH.

    Advantages of doing rotations in Baltimore

    -less students/rotation
    -great city to live in (suburbs, anyways)
    -25 mins or less to Washington DC (by car, of course!)
    -mild weather most of the year
    -cheaper to live in than NYC

    Disadvantages
    -definitely need a car (not much of a transit system)
    -not many positions available for Ross students, so you have to book the rotations ahead of time (6 months minimum)


    PM me for more specific info.

    Mostly correct

    Agree with most of the break down of Md area programs but a few corrections. St Elizabeth's does NOT have Peds. They are a psych hospital only. Also PG hospital has OB. So you currently have to go elsewhere for FP and Peds and OB spots are real few and far between

    one site

    Its too bad Ross doesn't have clinical sites like SGU has where you can do all of your core and elective rotationsat one site.
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!
