    Residency applications

    Advertisements



    Hey guys, this question may have been asked previously but I wanted to confirm it again.
    When we apply for residency, are we limited to which states we can apply to. I know there is a difference between where we can be licensed and residency but if I wanted to apply to say Virginia, or NY for residency, is that possible to do?

    Thank you so much

    Why not I heard there were some Windsor grads there? When I had called them a few years ago they said either all of my rotations had to be done on the island which were greenbook to apply or had to do them all in ny, or none in ny.

    Technically, they should not be allowed to do residency there since they are not approved by NY board of medicine, and doing all there rotations outside of the country in which there school is located makes them ineligible for residency. You can only do 12 weeks outside your schools country if your school is not approved. I do not know how those residents from your school got around this, because you have to list the location each rotation was done at if your school is not approved by the NY board of medicine.

    I will add the only way you should be eligible is if you truly did all your rotations in the country in which your medical school is located, and/ or did a maximum of 12 weeks outside the country where your medical school is located.

    Well that must have been the case then they did all their rotations on the island. However back to the original question which states can we apply to residency for then.

    Windsor grads can practice in NY. They can also obtain residency in NY.

    In order to be eligible for NY residency, you must have done 12 or fewer weeks of rotations in the US. The rest must be done in St Kitts at JNF. Doing this method is a big disadvantage because while it qualifies you for an NY residency, NY and other states will likely pass on your CV because having non-US rotations is a bit of a red flag. You may be able to compensate for it with tip-top scores. I mean, students from India and Pakistan and Saudi schools still match well in the US without US rotations, but it is a big gamble to take.

    I know of one Windsor student that did all of his rotations on the island in the hopes of applying for NY residencies. They matched, but not in NY. I don't know his stats or anything, but if he knew he wasn't going to match in NY, for whatever reason, I'm pretty sure he would've opted to do US rotations and perhaps gotten more interviews from other states as a result.

    NY residency is a big deal. NY has a ton of residency spots and is pretty IMG friendly. The fact that Windsor does not have NY approval is a big disadvantage. But you can still practice there. You would just need to complete a residency elsewhere. I don't think it's worth living longer on the island to do rotations just for a shot in hell to match in NY.

    Stick to US rotations because the school has actually worked hard in recent months to secure proper rotation sites and not crumbling clinics with apathetic, money-hungry physicians looking to make a quick buck.

    There are 50 states in the United States. I sure as f*** am not going to list all the ones you can apply for residency to. Do some work.

    Thanks for that awesome reply. I just needed clarification and got it. I guess from there any states under new york or California approval can be eliminated. Onto more research it is.
    Thanks so much again.
