    Electives/Selectives Sites

    Advertisements



    It says on the SMU website that a list of hospitals allowing students to rotate through electives or selectives ("visiting senior electives") is provided at clinical orientation in the handbook. I was just wondering if someone could verify this and if so, would someone mind posting the list of hospitals?

    There is no list for Selectives/Electives for you have to set them up yourself. You can do some at SMU affiliated hospitals, but that is up to you. I listed a few electives that can be done at Wyckoff, and Synergy. Will try to get a more detailed list.

    Electives

    Just thought I introduce some of the stuff I found out:

    1- Central Maine Medical Center is a IMG-friendly hospital. They will allow SMU students to do the family core there (if the clinical dept at SMU approves it).

    2- There is another hospital affiliated with Dartmouth, I believe it is in Augusta, Maine...They require that you have started rotations though. They offer a FP rotation & Geriatric elective also. All of the above are green. Will not post any "blue" (non-ACGME approved sites).

    3- This does not apply to SMU (the clinical site itself in Orlando & Kissimmee requires a passing Step 1 score), but maybe for other students who are looking for rotations and are trying to "think outside the box"...

    First, I researched the Florida State laws on clinical rotations:

    http://www.firn.edu/doe/cie/pdf/chapter6E_rules0905.pdf

    (g) The application for licensure shall document that all students participating in core clerkship programs meet the following standards;
    1. Completed at least three (3) years of undergraduate education at a college or university.
    2. Completed a basic science program totaling at least four (4) semesters in length. This program shall include, but is not necessarily limited to, rigorous instruction in the major disciplines of the biological sciences (i.e., anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, pathology, and microbiology), the behavioral sciences, and an introduction to clinical diagnosis. Adequate laboratory facilities for this instruction must be provided.
    3. Obtained a passing score on Step I of the United States Medical Licensing Examination within 12 weeks of commencing their third year of medical education.

    Juni- does the SMU clinical dept know about Central Maine Medical center? SMU certainly needs some more Green core sites. To have it near the school is certainly a big plus.

    Please tell P.A (Clinical development coordinator) about your findings as it may be very valuable information to them.

    Yup. They are very helpful and nice people. I actually am in Florida, and paid them a visit. It was nice putting a face to who you correspond to over email...They all knew who Juni711 was... But I must say they took the time to talk to me and broke the whole rotations stuff down to me.
