    Residency Positions

    Advertisements



    Just wanted to see if and when the first graduating class will find out their residency matches? My main concern is a quality residency position. I am starting school on the island in September, and just looking to ease my concerns. Also, any that have been in clinical rotations at some of the affiliated hospitals I would love to hear of your experiences, just to see what my options are going to be like. Thanks in advance, and any other things on what to expect while attending UMHS would be greatly appreciated.

    We only have students in the 3rd year so it will be at least one more year before they can apply for a residency. I'm afraid that we will not be able to tell you anything about their success before you come in September.

    Yep, it will be a year before we start in a Residency Program. But... we'll actually be applying in just 4 months. September 1st to be precise...

    Is this what is left of the inaugural class of 22?

    Nope. They're talking about a group of students who transfered in before step 1, like WSU. The inaugural class was what I was in, and we won't be matching till 2012. We just started 3rd year and haven't taken step 2 yet

    I battle what specialty I want to shoot for each and every day, which is scary considering applications get sent out in just 4 months. But I tend to lean more and more towards IM as the days get closer. But it changes on a daily basis, so we'll just have to see I guess

    Good luck to you and your class

    Thanks guys for clearing that up. I guess that will have to suffice for now. Can anyone tell me more about the clinical sites? Has anyone gone to the UK for clinicals? I thought I saw that there was a hospital for clinical rotations in London. Please, please tell me that is true and legit. Also, how many people are we looking at for the September class? Anyone else from the south?

    This may be a question more for the admin at UMHS. I am constantly told to only go to the "Big 4" (AUC, SABA, SGU, ROSS), mostly due to the fact they have been around longer and grads can be licensed in all 50 states. I have no doubt that UMHS (fabulous facilities, etc) will be in the "Big 4" at some point, esp after classes graduate, etc. 3 of them have Fed Funding, but their tutition is 3 times as much also. SABA doesn't- has private loans just as UMHS and their tutition is about the same, very reasonable. What bearing does the licensure in all 50 states by the other schools have on UMHS graduates? When you contact the states to check on if one can be registered as a UMHS grad, none of them have heard of the school. Most answer they will as long as they are on the "California List". UMHS is not on the California list. So does this mean that UMHS grads will only have very specific states that the grads can be licensed in, regardless of where they do their rotations at? What states does UMHS, right now, does UMHS have/or know for a fact they have a guaranteed licensed states? I also understand that if it is several years down the road before certain states are able to grant license to UMHS grads, that this is not retroactive to people that have already graduated UMHS. So if you were to graduate before certain states were certified, it stil meant that you would not be able to be licensed in that state. Any definate light you can shed on exactly where (what states) UMHS KNOWS for SURE their grads can be licensed in would be very, very helpful. The individual state links are not helpful because none of them have UMHS listed or are even aware of them, which means it is highly likely they would grant a license. Please clarify with facts, verses "plans". Thanks!! 4 years is a lot of time to go, get your MD only to find out you can't get licened, or if you can, it is in just a couple of states. Thanks!! Also, any other reasons why I should choose UMHS over any of the other Big 4 would greatly be appreciated.
