    Clinical Center training

    Advertisements



    I have a question for some people who may understand the clinical training center process better.

    How does this work when you start applying for clinical rotations? Do we have to do these at the clinical centers or can we do them at other hospitals.

    From the website, it says:
    "Students may make arrangements to study at other clinical centers, as well as other affiliated hospitals."


    Does anyone know of anybody who has done their clinical rotations at any of the hospitals not listed on the clinical centers and affiliated hospitals, and what is the process to do that?

    The reason I ask is that I would love to do rotations in Texas or Georgia but I know that SGU doesn't have affiliations there. I don't mind doing them in the NY/NJ area, but wanted to know if it was actually possible to do that, or just only do a few electives at other hospitals?

    For example, I know that SGU grads are able to get residency positions at MCG in Augusta (where my SO attends), and would love to be able to get rotations done at a similar hospital but I obviously recognize the difference between a residency program and rotations.

    Clinical Center training

    You can do up to 12 weeks are non-sgu affiliates. I did at mt sinai in nyc. HOWEVER- and this is a BIG one: some states will not count that as credit to your md degree; that is even if you go to mass general, since its not an sgu affiliate they will not give you credit for the weeks you spend there. So what? So you may not be able to do a residency or get a license in those states.

    Remember always that if you were in school in the us you'd be lilkely be limited to a smal area for rotations at one or a couple of hospitals. You would be able to do outside rotations more easily, but always the bulk is done "at home".

    rotations...

    AmitK I see that you are form Texas. If you plan on going back to texas to practice medicine after residency do not do a rotation in texas and do not do it out side of SGU affiliated hospitals. They will make your life a living hell when you try to get a license.
    You apply for rotations in St. Vincents during 5th and 6th terms. You list 3 and they try to put you at one of your choices. Sometimes you may be the unlucky one that gets stuck at one that wasnt your choice. If you do not choose a clinical center for your cores then you will have to move around to do your cores and thats where you may have gaps in your schedule if you are not savy in setting up your rotations. With clinical centers you can do all your rotations back to back for cores.

    nim is correct. If you want to go back to texas dont do it, not from sgu nor any other non-us school.

    thanks

    Thanks for the information. I thought it might be helpful to find out how to set up a rotation here at Baylor or UT (Houston) but with that information, I suppose it doesn't make sense to do rotations here. A bit surprising though.

    Thanks for the heads up. There are a few states that I could see myself practicing in, so I guess I'll have to do the research on what the requirements are in each state before I make the final decision, huh?
