    UMHS Timeline

    Advertisements



    Hey guys

    I will be starting Extended Basic Sciences at UMHS in Fall 2015 and I was wondering if I could finish in time to apply for the 2019 match.
    This is what a timeline without hiccups looks like:
    Sep. 2015 - EBS 1
    Jan. 2016 - EBS 2
    May 2016 - EBS 3
    Sep 2016 - EBS 4
    Jan. 2017 - EBS 5
    May 2017 - Sem. 5 and Step 1
    Sep. 2017 - Sem. 6
    Jan. 2018 - Sem. 7
    May 2018 - Sem. 8
    Sep 2018 - Sem. 9 and Step 2
    Jan. 2019 - Sem. 10 and hopefully graduation.

    Going by that timeline, I should graduate by May 2019 and potentially start residency in July 2019.
    But for some reason, I was told to apply for financial aid with an anticipated graduation date of December 2019, which is 2 semesters further than what I calculated.

    Can anyone who has gone through the process weigh in on this. Aren't the rotations at UMHS back to back? If not, how much delay is there?

    It's because of delays during clinical rotations. Nothing ever works out as planned. Where LCME schools have a lock-step program in which cohorts move along together, in Carib schools you have to deal with extra paperwork, disorganization on part of the administration and staff etc...

    This is neither a smooth nor easy road to obtaining a MD degree and there are no guarantees going down this path.
