    What is additional 3rd yr requirement (ATYR)

    Advertisements



    Can somebody comment on this? Does all clinical sites require you to take a ATYR, and can we choose what it is? If so, is it an xtra 6 wk rotation, or is it 4 wks. thanks

    no, not all sites require you to take this. It's basically an extra rotation built into the core year to even out all the week b/c the cores don't make up a full year (ease of rotating different groups through the departments).

    Some hospitals it is a mandatory rotation (TBHC has ED for 6 weeks, but if you complain enough to the right people apparently you can switch it to something else don't do this though, makes everyone look bad). Some other hospitals have a list of options that you can choose from. Some hospitals it is 6 weeks, others you can choose to do 4 weeks and have the other 2 weeks off. Depends on where you're at....

    take a look on the ClinEd website for more info to each particular hospital, it's all up there...

    Sorry to revive this old thread, but I have heard a rumor that ATYR is actually letter graded and not just pass/fail. However I cannot substantiate this information. I looked in the clinical manual and on the clinical website and I have not found anything stating this. Anyone that went through it please share. Thanks

    At least for St. Barnabas/NBI it's pass/fail and not letter graded. Our ATYR is listed as a 6 week Medicine elective, but you can do non-Medicine electives (for example, I'm doing Anesthesia).

    It's not letter graded because not everyone has an ATYR. Students who are not assigned to a core hospital (for example me) don't have to do a ATYR so they wouldn't make it graded if not everyone does it. Pass/fail would be the only way to grade it.
