    Clinical Sites

    70% of U.S. clinical students go to either Atlanta, Chicago, or Baltimore for their core clinicals. Other major core clinical sites include Orlando, Detroit, and London (England).

    Rotations are available in FL, GA, IL, MD, MI, MO, NM, NY, OH, VA, and WV.

    As far as transferring from another school, all you need to do is to include a transcript from your current med school with the regular application package, and notate that you are seeking advanced standing.

    Thanks for your interest in SMU!

    rotations

    Thanks so much for the info. I found a page on the st. matthews website about the states they are affiliated with and michigan wasn't one of them. I am a bit confused. I would like to do rotations in Detroit if possible. Can you let me know if you are sure Michigan is included because the website says it's not. Thanks.

    Clinical Rotation too!

    Hi, Mr. Yates,
    I also have question about clinical rotation. I know there may not be a core rotation offered in Washington. Yet, is any elective rotation available over there? Thanks!

    Rotations

    xvipx, The website still reflects the old catalog. We are putting together the new catalog, but there are several new developments that we want to make sure are included, so it's on hold for right now.

    As you can see, we no longer offer rotations in Arizona, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, and North Carolina. We have added Michigan, Missouri, New York (limited unless approval comes through this summer), Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia. We are always trying to secure higher quality rotations for our students, and sometimes that means dropping sites in favor of others. So this list might change again by the time you get to clinicals.

    All cores are currently available in the Detroit Metro with the exception of Psych, I believe.

    turtlealbert, you can absolutely do electives in Washington. Just make sure you clear all of your choices with the Clinical Dean.

    As always, I'm available if you have any other questions.

    I am a NC resident and was hoping I could do my rotations close to home... Is their rotations in neighboring states like SC, VA, TN, GA?

    ...

    You can do all of your cores in Atlanta, and there are rotations available in Virginia.

    Remember, you may be able to do your electives in NC, as long as you gothrough the Clinical Dean.

    Have a great day!

    Transfering

    I emailed someone in the admissions department. I let them know that i was considering transfering from MUA. They told me if i transfered i would NOT get any credit for my courses at MUA. What is that about? MUA is a very tough school and even Ross gives transfer credits from here. It is a very good school, just new like SMU. Can you let me know what this is about and whether there is any way to transfer credits. No point on transfering if i have to take my classes again. Thanks

    Transfers

    Transfers are all considered on an individual basis. There are no medical schools on a "banned" list at SMU.

    They may have confused it with the pre-med program, whose credits SMU generally does not accept to gain admission.

    However, if you're just trying to transfer the med school credits, there is no policy in place that would automatically disqualify them or any other school. Each advanced standing application is reviewed by the Vice-President and the Admissions Committee.

    Hope that helps!
