    How many weeks of rotations?

    Advertisements



    What's the number required? I think I remember 72 or 76 but I'm not entirely sure. I've only done 4 weeks of FM so if it's either one of those then I've got to find a 2-week elective that's ACGME-approved.

    So let's say I can't find a 2-week elective, can we go beyond the required number to make it either 74 or 78?

    yes you can. Dr Mc told us in occasional cases a student may go over the required amount of weeks if there are no other options. I want to say the required number is 72 weeks. 30 elective, 42 cores

    From the web site: CORES = 46 weeks. ELECTIVES/SELECTIVES = 30 weeks. Or a total of 76 weeks for 3rd and 4th year. Dr. McC works with you students to assist in obtaining the correct mix. He has been so so helpful. Regards Dr. B
