    New Update on Windsor Clinical Clerkship Program

    Advertisements



    In the new Windsor Clinical Program structure, Family Medicine has been included in Core Rotation.
    From now henceforth, Duration for Core rotation is 48 weeks while the total elective rotations must be a minimum of 24 weeks.

    Core Rotation
    Internal Medicine 12 weeks
    Surgery 12 weeks
    Obsterics/Gynecology 6 weeks
    Psychiatry 6 weeks
    Pediatrics 6 weeks
    Family Medicine 6 weeks

    Electives Rotation
    Which may include Anesthesiology, Pathology, Dermatology, Radiology, Family Practice, e.t.c is now 24 weeks. It is highly recommended to the students that they engage in some electives that are medical and surgical sub specialties.

    Please Note the Total numbers of clinical clerkship program is 72 weeks (Core rotation 48 weeks + Elective rotation 24 weeks = 72 weeks)

    Family Medicine has always been a required (core), 6 week rotation. 72 weeks, as Prophet said, has also always been the total amount of clinical time.

    This is nothing new.

    Yes nothing new, i think the confusion was because on one of the clinical stickies http://www.valuemd.com/windsor-unive...ion-guide.html, the OP forgot to add family medicine as one of the cores so a lot of students thought it wasnt required, but it has always been required.

    You will be doing yourself a big disservice by not doing a family medicine core since its one of the easier residencies for img's

    Does anyone have any information in regards to doing electives in England? I know Windsor is affiliated with Good Hope Hospital, and I was thinking to do some of my electives there if possible. Since it's outside of the USA, is there a limit to how many weeks I can do? Would it affect my chances of residency if I did electives there?
