    Not allowed to do electives in Pennsylvania?

    Advertisements



    I looked all over trying to find in writing where it states that no IMG/FMG can do any rotations in PA, and couldn't find it. Does anyone know where they can find it?

    No rotations period for any foregin medical school student (electives AND cores). I spoke with the PA Medical board directly.
    Do your part and God will help you more than you ever wished.

    By the way I also spoke to the board and they said you no longer need green electives...i spoke to two people and they both said they no longer look at rotations, just that you have completed an acgme approved residency. who knows though, if they want an excuse to not license you they can use anything

    i thought i posted something a while back, but couldn't find it.

    however i did find THIS on the UPenn and Penn State websites

    Visiting Medical Students - Penn State MD Program

    UPENN SOM Global Health Programs - Medical Students | International

    so it seems that there could be a loophole to this, but good luck actually getting one of these schools to agree to an affliation (or it could be that these schools had an agreement prior to the law being enacted and they were grandfathered in)

    From the first link
    In accordance with the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine, Penn State College of Medicine no longer accepts foreign medical students for any kind of clinical rotation.
    The second list actually mentions the list of schools allowed to do rotations, and unfortunalty none of the caribbean schools qualify.

    So it seems there isn't a loophole there anymore.

    In the "green book", it basically spells it out that it's a big no-no. Oh well, it was a good program and they were going to take me for a competitive elective. At least they'll know me when they get my ERAS app in a few months.

    I cant believe smu when they say that they invented the term green and blue book rotations. EARTH to smu i have friends in other medical schools and they exactly know what Green and blue book mean. Man that has been bothering me for months. I just had to say it. Whewww i was going to explode
