    Misconceptions about uk rotations!!!!

    Advertisements



    I have done a fair bit of research on UK rotations and here are my findings, unless any one else can provide solid proof that states otherwise.

    Can Windsor Students do rotations in the UK??
    Yes, but only visiting electives through UK medical schools.

    What visa does one need to do rotations in the UK?
    None EU students require the UKBA Tier 4 General visa. See http://www.smd.qmul.ac.uk/undergradu...rmission-1.pdf

    How does one go about arranging rotations in the UK??
    You have to contact any medical school in the UK by yourself, and apply for a visiting student elective. The schools will then assign you to hospitals in the NHS trust hospitals that they are related to.
    Here's an example. Visiting Students' Elective Programme at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary, University of London

    what is the maximum number of weeks a Windsor Students can spend in rotations in the UK?

    8 weeks is the most I 've seen with King's college London. See King's College London - Electives for visiting students

    Does Windsor have any affiliations with UK hospitals?
    None,..you have to contact any UK medical school's electives department yourself. The Clinical Cordinator at the monee office also has no clue of any hospital affiliations in the UK.

    I have heard of windsor students rotating in the UK directly with a hospital,..how was that possible??
    I actually talked to one person. It appears the school hard some direct arrangements with some Indian Doctors at some NHS trust hospitals,..windsor Students went to the UK pretending to be visitors.
    I doubt this is possible legally as you will need a letter from a UK medical school to obtain a Student Visa.
    If anyone else has more reliable proof of how they got arround the visa issue, I would love to see that.

    Do you need malpractice insurance for the UK hospitals?

    Barts & the London School of Med. for instance covers the malpractice for you during electives. However, you need your own personal health care insurance.

    These are my findings. If anyone has reliable and solid info stating otherwise, please share links.
    Please don't post rumors!!.

    Umm where are you getting this information from? I recently emailed the school about rotations in the UK and Windsor is affiliated with Good Hope Hospital in Birmingham. A number of students are there right now.

    @ProphetX-I addressed this on my second-last point. Who is your source, coz I talked to [ B****tney] at the Monee office and she has no idea of any UK affiliations.

    BTW, I also know p'ple who have rotated in the UK, but that was a private arrangement with some Indian doctors in the NHS system.
    But students had to lie to British Immigration that they 're visitors, and some students have gotten in trouble in the past & been deported with British Immigration. So let me know if this has changed/improved.

    Also, to get a student VISA into the UK, they would need a letter from a UK medical school offering them electives. Do you know how else they got in., unless ofcourse they 're EU nationals or they gave false info to immigration.

    Here's a list of the schools that the UK border agency will ONLY issue student Visas for. http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/si...nsorseducation

    That's why you can only do electives thru UK medical schools. You will have to explain how the 'Good hope hospital' arrangement by- passes these rules.

    Just because one person doesn't know about it doesn't mean it's not happening. I spoke to the UK clinical coordinator some months back and everything is handled through the school. A lot of Nigerian students are there right now. You should try emailing more than one person, or email the proper individual who handles this.

    Some update regarding UK rotations.

    I have an update about rotations in UK. This apply to all visiting students, not just Windsor. In the past, non EU students were allowed to enter UK without VISA. They were allowed to enter the program and apply for VISA while conducting their clinical. Effective October/2011, each hospital must apply for sponsorship license through UK Border Agency. This is new policy for students studying in UK for period over 6 months. Student wishes to stay less than 6 months can enter the country under tourist VISA. However, you cannot extend this VISA. I believe u can complete more than 8 weeks of elective rotations in UK. It's up to the discretion of hospital coordinator to set up rotations based on availability and hospital need. Visiting students must evaluate what elective rotations are available to complete in UK before committing to UK. Discussion about advantages and disadvantages of completing elective rotation in UK is reserve for another thread. VISA Requirements: 800 British Pounds per months in student bank account. Big 3 set up all rotations for their students and may have different policy. Plus, they can complete their core and elective rotations in UK. For more information, contact the hospital directly and they can provide detail info.
