    DO FP rotation at Far Rockaway

    Advertisements



    I feel like this has probably been beaten into the ground on this forum, but I did a search and did not find a really good answer to my question. My clinical advisor is telling me that the only special rotation available in the next couple of months is a DO family practice rotation at Far Rockaway. Otherwise, I'll have to wait until August to begin rotations. Please give me some opinions on if it is the worst thing in the world to do a DO rotation as far as licensure is concerned. I'm 95% sure that I will not be practicing in California, so that's not really a concern for me. However, what if I get other DO rotations along the way? Can I do a residency in California even if I can't practice there? Are there any other states I would have to worry about licensure with? Thanx in advance....

    DO rotations

    If you're not 100% completely sure that you don't want to practice in
    Calilfornia or Pennsylvania, then don't do a core rotation in an AOA program. I think California will let you get away with a very limited number of weeks for electives but I'm not sure about Pennsylvania.

    Re:

    You can throw Florida in there as well. Florida requires that all core rotations be done at ACGME sites only!!!

    non-medicine rotations

    Why don't you try to do "non-medicine" rotations? ie. Radiology, Neurology, Pathology. At least you will be able to get some electives out of the way while you wait for cores to open up. I did it, and it worked out well.

    I agonized if I should lock this thread because it should really be up above with the sticky re. clinical rotations. I'll leave it here for now, since it seems to mainly deal with the age-old DO/licensure issue. To check if your clinical sites are accredited to gain licensure, check the sticky for the link.

    Best wishes!

    Florida

    The Florida State Board told a friend of mine who's from Florida that Florida DOES accept AOA (DO) rotations.
