    Windsor Clinical Rotations:

    Advertisements



    Windsor Clinical Rotations:

    1. Do you have greenbook clinical rotations in the US?
    2. Do students have to wait for several months to move from one rotation to another?
    Thanks.
    Dele.

    Greenbook, yes.

    As for waiting months, I'm pretty sure there is a wait period but I don't know how long it is. Worst case scenario: set up your own clinicals.

    you cant setup your own CORES can you? if you CAN setup your own CORES then please let me know how and the process. I have some sites in Dallas that are willing to let me do my CORES there but I backed away as I thought this was NOT possible and I could ONLY setup my own ELECTIVES? someone please clarify this..

    I believe there are licensure issues with setting up your own cores outside of school affiliation but I don't know for sure.

    wait times are getting longer for EVERYBODY.

    used to be, students from ross, sgu, auc did their rotations mainly in northeast areas (new york, baltimore, etc). the number of students in those schools entering clinicals is increasing but the spots have stayed the same or decreased. so now a lot of the students of those schools have started to move west (chicago) or south (miami, louisiana, arizona). those states have the majority of students from windsor, xavier, st matts, etc. and most of the hospitals have a "first come, first serve" policy for rotations.

    some hospitals are going bankrupt and/or cutting down on staff. even if the rotation is certified, if there is no one there to teach, then they cannot have a rotation there

    Agree with Chinamedstudent. No matter what school you go to, wait times will be there. Don't believe me? Check out AUA's clinical forum. There are students waiting for six months for a rotation spot. Bottom line, don't be too attached to a certain location. If a spot opens up, pack your bags, and move.

    Second, there is no point in worrying about clinicals when you haven't even passed basic sciences or step 1. Yes, you could start clinicals without passing step 1, but you are only delaying the inevitable. Also, when you are being pimped by your attending, and you don't know basic medical knowledge, you probably won't get a good rec letter or grade for that matter in that rotation.
    Rotations will be there when you are ready for them. One step at a time people. I've seen and been part of some brutal pimping sessions. These are actual questions a attending asked me, in rapid fire (thank God I know my stuff):

    What do we use to treat a subarachnoid hemorrhage? What will the patient complain of? What does a epidural hematoma look like on a CT scan? What vessels are involved? How do we treat these patients? A patient walks in with temporal arteritis, what are we most concerned about, how do we treat it, and what disease is it commonly associated with it?

    If you don't know the answers to the above questions, I wouldn't be crying about wait times for rotations, I'd be burying my head in a book....

    six month gap is too much, there are series of the clinical that each student has to go through, and if there are couple of month delay between each one, it gonna take forever!!

    Ive heard there is little wait because Windsor is now forcing you to pay for the 6th semester and take the Step 1 exam prior to beginning clinicals. If you pass the Step then no problems, but they will let you continue to get all your cores done if you fail it. Im sorry but from the perspective of a US citizen who has paid into the tax system that pays for those clinical spots, I have very little sympathy for those who are not citizens taking my spot. It is my belief that all US citizens with a passing Step 1 score should be given priority over anyone else. If I went to another country they would be far less accommodating to me getting my education on their dime.
