    The king of New York

    Advertisements



    Call it capitalism , call it greed or it just pure genuine the best or worst deal in New medical history. SGU is now the king of New York. They signed a deal with New York City's Health and Hospitals corporation . It is a 10 year , $ 100 million contract with SGU. The contract provides clinical clerkship to hundreds of students at the NYC's 11 public hospital.

    Hate them or love them. SGU is the king of New York. Other US and international medical schools seemed pissed about the deal. The question is should clinical clerkship be capitalist oriented (highest bidder wins) or should it be a fair fight (every school gets a fair chance)?..I just want to hear what ppl feel about the decision

    the whole article from the NY Times can be accessed by clicking the link below

    in my own opinion, i would just leave them alone....let those greedy people get what they want....if that makes them happy let them be....after all its only few hospitals, there are plenty of hospitals in the world..if i cant do rotations, residency or even practice in new york, big deal......its not the end of the world......in fact for me ts an opportunity to stay out of new york completely....i am thankful.

    We can't even be in NY for more than 12 weeks during clinicals, so it's not like it's that big of a loss. As for the SGU purchase, they've got the money to throw on clinical sites, so more power to them. If UMHS had the same pillar of funds behind them, I assure you we'd be doing the exact same thing.

    So once we are accredited will this leave us fighting for the remaining spots with the rest of the Carib schools?

    Kluver Bucy,
    First of all, let's revisit that word "accredited" again. Keep in mind that all schools listed on IMED, UMHS included, ar accredited. Some, like UMHS, do not have state approvals. Please go back to the top of the page where you'll find a sticky by WSUcougar that discusses "approvals" in detail.

    Secondly, UMHS already has more than enough clinical rotations to handle all of the students that are currently enrolled plus those that will register in May 2009. Even though we have a surplus, we continue to negotiate with more hospitals so that we get sites in more geographical areas. This will give clinical science students greater flexibility.
