    greenbook/bluebook rotations only matter for licensure and not residency right?

    Advertisements



    the whole concept of doing greenbook or bluebook rotations only comes into play when discussing whether you can get licensed in a particular state right and NOTHING to do with residency?

    Some residencies require students to complete a certain amount of clinical experience in hospitals with ACGME accredited programs or greenbook rotations. PA requires all of the rotations to be completed in ACGME accredited hospitals or greenbook rotations. Its also a law in PA.

    I realized that all our rotations, regardless of green book or blue book are either directly acgme approved or within that umbrella. Simply put, they are all acgme approved. So I realize this shouldn't be an issue for residency in states.

    I tried to get the link for the Penn State Board of Medicine but I could open the PDF. Here is some information from a residency website about Pennsylvania's laws on getting a training license for residency.

    "Meet the requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine to obtain a graduate training license:
    Must have 4 years of medical school, 32 months and 4000 hours of instruction in medical curriculum.
    Must have 72 weeks of clinical rotations and when in the U.S., must be in an ACGME-recognized program. A minimum of 2880 hours is required. "
