    Choosing location of clinicals

    Advertisements



    I was told on the phone that SGU assigns you to a clinical hospital, but then another person told me you choose. So, basically, who is right?

    Also, are all the hospital listed on SGUs website being currently used for clinicals, or is there one hospital with more SGU students than others. Which is the most popular in USA?

    I guess that means for GSP people we will end up in NY since there are problems with NJ and California regulations. Oh, isn't that an upside?

    Has anyone ever managed to do a core or two outside of SGU's network? I've heard about students doing cores outside the network(that are greenbook), but then when I tried to set up something similiar I got shot down, hard. They basically said only electives, and only 12 weeks.

    I'm only in 4th term, but I figured I'd try and see what was possible early on.

    no that is verboten!!!

    it has to do with licensing issues, so all cores MUST be done at a hospital with an affliation (not temporary) with sgu.

    Now if there is a hospital you want and is willing to sign an affliation agreement, you can work that out...

    i think you are really risking licensing issues with doing cores outside affliated hopsitals thats why sgu probably really discourage it. even with the 12 week electives outside the system, there are some states wont license you.

    Are you assured to get the hospital(s) that you want?

    not 100% but sgu will try to get you your #1 preference. obviously if 100 students want X hospital and it only has 50 spots, then 50 ppl wont get it

    Is it true that SGU has troubles with regulations for rotations in NJ? I'm from NJ and was hoping that I would be able to come back for my rotations. I also heard/read that SGU was suppose to be in the process of making agreements with UMDNJ to have SGU students do rotations with UMDNJ students at affiliated hospitals. Is this ture or am I going crazy?
