    Bad News Is Coming !!!!

    Advertisements



    Hi all SMU students,
    Yesterday my friend who is doing rotation at Wyckoff Heights Hospital told me that her preceptor said Wyckoff hospital won't renew the contract with SMU. The contract will be ended Nov 2008. I am not sure if it is correct or not. Please let us know more about this situation.

    what would a preceptor know?
    they're not involved in making affiliation agreements with schools.

    it is possible though, seeing how ross is taking spots like a bottom feeder.

    Unlike SMU... I would assume Wyckoff may actual have good communication with its staff. I know that the Ross forum said they inked a deal at the end of last year at Wyckoff for more spots, that would start some time in 2008.. so.. it wouldn't suprise me.

    The problem is.. Ross is getting so many transfer apps from SMU, only a handful will actually be able to transfer.

    NOT good at all... Way to go SMU... It is a good thing the clinical deans will be here this week... EVERYONE needs to drill them with these questions and see if they will be honest.. or lie to our faces as usual.

    answer to this question is hospital committes. there are comittees for everything and anything so maybe this person is in the medical education circle of comittees. i wouldn't doubt the possibility though, this hospital is currently trying to get out of a contract with auc 3 years early because they signed something with ross so there may be some truth to this one.

    I'm sure SMU is fully aware if this situation actually exists.
