    Match Results For 2006

    Hello,

    I thought I would start a thread regarding match results for the 2006 NRMP match.

    I know four Spartan students whom have ''pre-matched'' for July 2006.

    Family Medicine - Iowa
    Internal Medicine - Michigan
    Internal Medicine - Washington, DC
    General Surgery - Michigan

    Any Spartan students/grads who match this year into a specialty, can you please post your specialty and the state in which you matched? It would be wonderful for the valuemd.com world to see that Spartan is still producing grads who are able to make it in the USA.

    Thanks,

    Current

    Only some schools from Dominican Republic and Mexico are officially "convalidated " in Puerto Rico. That is, that they have visited and cetified.

    Now if you have graduated from any other Caribbean school or foreing school to that matter you must comply with these requirements:

    Be ECFMG certified and have completed ALL USMLE steps

    Have completed residency trainning in the U.S.(2 - 3 years, depending on specialty)

    Have obtained licensure in another state

    Once you comply with all those rules, they really dont care were you went to school. They assume that if you passed residency and ALL USMLE/s and qualify for a license elsewhere in the U.S. then you are competent enough. Of course you will have to deal with HIGH liability insurance premiums, etc.

    Any more info PM me and maybe I can be of help.

    hey all
    I just got ECFMG certified 2 weeks ago. Right now preparing for the scramble b/c it's kind of late for the match. Will let you guy know the update.

    Does any one knows about the licensing in new NY and CA, are Spartan students allowed to rotate in Ny, and be licensed to practice here after graduating?
    Thank you very much for the reply

    Spartan

    First of All, Asiandoc- You are totally correct.
    As for NY - I believe you can only do about 1 rotation and that is all. Unless of course you have connections....

    I am a student at Spartan for those of you reading. I KNOW many graduates and practicing physicians as well as current students.

    What I can say is that Spartan does have many excellent and very qualified physicians. Although Spartan does have great students, it also has its share of poor students. Frankly, and sad that it may be, many students will not make it at Spartan, and the reason they are here is of course the money. However, the DEFINITE fact is that the graduates that do make it, are extremely successful. (lets just say that you are not spoonfed like most other schools, so you have to do it mainly yourself and that is what makes Spartan grads superior to many) I am not saying that Spartan is a perfect place to be, there are many flaws, but what it comes down to is ONLY the USMLE. The students that pass and continue to clinicals have proven themselves. The ones that failed will fade into the past.

    It is individual based, and sadly for Spartan the ones that go on will have done it mostly themselves.
    In other words, Spartan does give you the chance to write the Steps and clinicals in most states, but it is up to you as an individual to take advantage of your resources (**the resources are there, you just have to apply yourself**)and become the doctor you want to be.

    The poor Alumni status is because the Alumni association is not very good and was only just reinstated by students recently. There is a long list and I have seen the list of graduates, almost in every state, even CA (but CA is individual based-connections?).

    I hope this clarifies things.

    hey everyone,
    I was interested in going to spartan, but I'm just worried about the clinicals. Whenever I ask the admin, where the clinical rotations are, they refuse to mention ANY hospital they're affiliated with. I understand that the locations change from time to time, but for them not to even mention one hospital that they affiliated with, is kind of sketchy. All the other schools, mention their clinical rotations on their websites. Is it so bad to ask what these are for spartan. When I asked the school, they sought of got tense with the question and told me " why are you so worried about them? Worry about them when you get there..."
    I just need to know so that I don't have to spend more money at another school, just because they'll tell me ahead of time what locations they have for clinicals, when I could easily go to spartan.

    Can any current spartan student shed some light to this....

    Bottom line is you can do your rotations in almost any state. If the school does not have any association with a hosp. then you can always go it on your own. The school will help you as much as they can if you choose to do clinicals in a hosp. they are not affiliated with. Worry about getting to that point first, things fall into place. Just remember to do as well as you can at Spartan and on step 1. A good step 1 score is key to good clinicals.

    Clinicals a secret?

    Well if you are reading this it is an opinion of why they are in 'part' a secret.

    It is not a secret to those who are currently doing clinicals but you have to imagine a sea of schools and students looking for rotations. Some schools that are made of big money like the top 3 come and buy out your hospital that you just posted on Valuemd to help other students....and now you are out of a clinical rotation...
    Almost happened to me good thing I am grandfathered in... now I am glad some didn't post hospitals where i can go so these other schools don't buy them out too. It is purely business but these top 3 schools that are known really don't care about anything else but business and just feed their schools of fish by draining out oceans of hospitals.

    There will be rotations available at Spartan but you can thank the top 3 tuition paying schools for your loss in choice.
