    Clinical Placements - Message from Executive Dean

    Advertisements



    I am pleased to inform you that the St George's, University of London Medical School at the University of Nicosia will be offering clinical placements during Years 3 and 4 at Jackson Park Hospital & Medical Center in Chicago, a leading American teaching hospital.

    Approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), this not-for-profit charitable organisation aims to extend medical services in the fields of research, education, public health and community welfare. It is an acute, short-term comprehensive care facility with a 326-bed capacity, serving the south side of Chicago. The hospital offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic and ancillary services with a commitment to medical education at all levels. The hospital offers full medical, surgical, obstetric, paediatric, psychiatric, and medical stabilisation (detox) services as well as medical sub-specialties including cardiology, pulmonary, gastrointestinal disease, renal, orthopaedics, ENT, ophthalmology, infectious disease, HIV, haematology/oncology and geriatrics.
    The emergency department handles approximately 25,000 patient visits annually with full-time attending physician coverage, nurse practitioners, resident physicians and medical students.

    The hospital also provides medical education and training through its family medicine residency program and several affiliated medical schools.

    With this development, you now have another exciting option for your clinical placements in addition to the Sheba Medical Center and European location(s) that we expect to announce in the summer.

    Best regards,

    A. C., M.Sc., PhD.

    JPH is this school's only USCE? JPH is one of the worst places to rotate and is only ACGME approved for FM, you know that from being at AUA so long Tipton.

    that does then give umbrella coverage for the other rotations for states that recognize umbrella coverage.

    It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Or a dull one, for that matter.

    Although I cannot speak for Tipton or the institution he represents, I rather highly doubt that this agreement has exhausted the efforts of SGU-L in obtaining USCE sites.

    For a medical school with 30 first-year students only 6 of whom are from the US and Canada, I'd say our two existing affiliated hospitals and the other affiliations we have in-progress provide a potent combination of opportunities for clinical experience.
