    Green rotations

    I have been reading about the lack of green rotations for SMU students. Is this correct? Also about 5th semester in the U.S and other schools allowing all core rotations to be in one city?
    Can someone from SMU administration answer these questions? It would be important to know this information before applying or choosing SMU?

    ok, so let me get this straight, can we or can't we do all green core rotations in NYC? i thought that with the addition of the two new sites in ny, this would be good to go.

I would hate for anyone to thing think they can get all green in one place (based on your information) when it is not the case
    Previously you could only do 5 out of 6 of the cores at ACGME approved sites in NYC. With the addition of Lincoln Medical, all 6 can be done at ACGME approved rotation sites. So if you do your rotations in Cabrini, Wyckoff, and Lincoln Medical, you can do all six cores, with all being ACGME approved (green). Cabrini is in Manhattan, Wyckoff in Brooklyn, and Lincoln in the Bronx. All are located within NYC, hence all cores can be done in NYC at ACGME approved rotations.

    Now the school does not force you to do any rotations that are not ACGME approved, you may just have to wait, even move around. I have never implied otherwise.

    hey

    i live right outside the city, and im def willing to wait, as long as it is reasonable, and if the case may be, i get a chance to go to another state and get it done quicker, so be it.

    Skidoc, i thought you were going for the purple rotations now, im personally looking toward a new diverse one, flannel rotations.

    This is from the "Green States" sticky:

    Cabrini Medical Center, NY,= Surg, IM, Psych
    St. Barnabus, Bronx= IM, Peds,
    St. John's Episcopal, Far Rockaway= Psych
    Wyckoff Heights Med Center= IM, PEDS, FP, Surgery
    So at Wyckoff you can do: IM, Peds, FP
    Cabrini: Psych, Surg
    Lincoln: OB

    Those are all ACGME approved rotations. Hence all cores now can be done in NYC.

    Are you serous?? .... if you want Blue rotations... go ahead and take them.. I wouldnt touch them if they were tuiton-free.
    Advice to everyone who wants to practice medicine anywhere: Stick to Green rotations. It's enough we're limited by attending a school that isnt accredited in all states. Staying Green (AGCME-approved) will give you the maximum states possible to practice in.
