    Starting Clinicals...

    Advertisements



    Hey guys, I took my Step 1 exam this week and I intend to start rotations in Chicago in 3 weeks time. The school sent me an email but there are so many instructions and they all seem to contradict each other...how exactly am I supposed to begin? I am not an American citizen and right now I am on the island. The first thing I guess is to pay the fees but apart from that, what else should I be doing now before I start in 3 weeks time? They mentioned some tests I should run liek the TB and co., should I do them now or when I start? I know everything will be clearer when you you reply.Thank you for your time

    the doctor I met here is reluctant to give me a note for a two step TB because she doesn't see the point, she says she can only give me a note for a single Mantoux test. Do you think it's going to be much of an issue?

    Hey guys I'm done with all the tests except the Mantoux and the school has received my application. Is there anything else I should be doing in the mean time while I wait?

    I'm not sure if you need the Mantoux to get into the States, although you for sure need it for starting clerkships. see if you can get into the States and see a doctor there that will do the test for you. You may have to pay a bit for it, but at least you can request for the test to be done and not be told by a kittitian what is needed in america.

    my two cents, however don't take my word for it. check to see if doing it this way is possible.

    Yeah that's what I'll probably do. I already have a VISA to get in so I was thinking I would get in and do the test over there. Is there anything else I should sort out while I await a response from the school?
