    In order to do ALL greenbook cores...

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,
    I was doing some research (as im studying for step 1) about states and their respective licensing requirements. I have seen on different places on this forum as well, that some states require that all of your cores be greenbook. Now in order for that to happen, say our school didn't offer a green book rotation spot for surgery (just an example of a core rotation) whether it be due to lack of availability or any other reason. Would our only other option be to complete that specific rotation at JNF back in St Kitts? (since all rotations there are considered greenbook) Any clarification would be appreciated. Thanks

    We dont have green-book. make sure you stay away from ***** Medical Group, AICG, all these clinical groups are just a big huge scam.

    Theoretically if you were to be placed into that situation then you would have two options:

    1) Return to St. Kitts for that rotation (for the exact reason you mentioned)

    or

    2) Set up your own core by begging a greenbook hospital to take you on. There are very few teaching hospitals that openly allow students to set up cores through them so odds are you would have to know someone in the program or go in there face to face and beg each program you can find until one would take you.

    Thanks, Houmd. Thats what i had suspected, i appreciate your response.

    I always feel its good to look ahead and plan accordingly; whats the point of doing all these rotations, then residency, and then not be able to get a license in the state you want to practice. I would strongly advise everyone to do some research into the state(s) you wish to practice, and read their requirements for getting a PERMANENT LICENSE (not temporary license; they are two different things). Just my two cents.

    To keep it short, a green book rotation is one that is done at a hospital that has a residency program for that particular rotation. For example, if you are doing an internal medicine rotation at hospital X, Hospital X also has a residency program in internal medicine. If you are doing, say, a pediatric rotation at hospital Y, Hospital Y also has a pediatric residency program. Hope that helps.
    From what it seems, certain states require that all your CORES be greenbook, some states require that all your CORES AND ELECTIVES be greenbook, and some states dont care if they are green book or not.
    Thats why i had originally posted the question about having the option, to complete some rotations (at least the cores) back in St. Kitts, IN CASE, they were not being offered as greenbook rotations here in the US, all to fufill the license requirements down the road.

    No problem. I completely agree with your thinking 100% and wish more people looked ahead and thought long-term like you do. If more of our students did this then I guarantee a lot of our student complaints would decrease.

    Some people I know from different schools have told me based on their research that PA, TX and a few other states require all greenbook rotations.
