    Atlanta Rotations

    Advertisements



    Hi. I will be starting my clinicals soon. I would like to go to Atlanta. Does anyone know how good or bad the Atlanta rotations are? Secondly I would like to know which hospitals and clinics that we will be rotating at in Atlanta. Lastly, I will be moving to Atlanta and would like an advice on where to find an affordable and safe apartment that will be somehow close to most of the hospitals or clinics that I will be rotating in. I also need an advice on what kind of medical software to buy for my pda. Thanks all. I really need help with these questions as soon as possible.

    I was under the impression that the majority of Xavier students rotate through Atlanta Medical Center (AMC), which is affiliated with the Medical College of Georgia. The AMC is green for FM, IM, OBGYN, and Surgery. It also has a couple of surgery electives that are green. I'm not sure how students rotate Peds and Psych green at that location because AMC is not green for those. Maybe, they do those rotations blue and hope they can get state license approval under the family medicine umbrella.

    I contacted the Greater Medical Center (GMC) group, that organizes student rotations about rotating all rotations green, but haven't heard back yet. Anyone with some clarification on this would be great.

    Hey Chris, I'm glad your on top of the game and doing the research. Your concern was mine as well. Let us know if you find anything out. I'm really interested in doing clinicals in Atlanta as well so we need to make sure the rotations are all green book. I'll fill you guys in as well if I find anything out.

    I really wish actual students who were doing their rotations RIGHT NOW in Atlanta could shed some light on us. Anyone?

    Since I didn't hear any reply when I emailed GMC last week I decided to give them a call.

    I spoke with a guy in the Clinical Rotations Division (CRD) and he seemed relatively knowledgeable about the services they provide. When asked about the status of getting ACGME rotations through them there was no definitive answer. I told him I was concerned about the states that require an IMG student to do all core clinical rotations green and he made it seem like it wasn't a big deal. He assured me that he has helped numerous students get licensed in several states, including PA, where they scrutinize all of your clinical rotations. He did stress that you should pass your step 1 before you start your rotations to ensure you get a chance to rotate in the "bigger university hospitals". A plus of the program is that you can do all your rotations in one place and rotate continuously.

    I read some posts on the St. Matthews forum about GMC and found out that SMU doesn't consider rotations done through GMC as green. So, i'm still confused on the whole issue and would like to know if any other students had some clarification on this?
