    Affiliated electives vs. away electives (greenbook)

    Advertisements



    I'm a little confused about licensing issues. For instance, in Pa. Do all electives have to be at affiliated hospitals? Or, is it ok as long as they are greenbook? I would like to do some away electives but I want to be sure that all options are available. If away electives present a problem, then I'll do them all at SGU affiliated places.

    you can't go wrong doing them at affiliated hospitals. also don't forget to check if there are any special electives that need to be done like family practice or something else.

    Keep in mind, doing an away elective can significantly increase your chance of matching, especially if it's a competitive residency. I wouldn't worry too much about licensing, provided that the program you are rotating at is in the green book/has an accredited residency. I keep hearing that Texas needs all in-house electives, but I'd double check on that. I'm grateful that I did two away rotations and I believe it put me at the top on the residency committees list. This is of course can work in the opposite way if you don't manage to impress them.

    That info should be on the State Licensing Board website.

    Just FYI, you cannot do any unaffiliated electives in PA.
