Embarrassed Internship as a Hospital Requirement before Residency!

hi guys,

this might be completly out of topic from step 2ck prep. but just wanted to clarify my doubt.

I am currently doing my clinical rotations i.e. part of 3rd and 4th year of med. school. I am going to a Carribean med school.

As i was reviewing some of the hospital reqirements (OUTSIDE USA) for residancy application, they have mentioned APPLICANT MUST DO A 1YR OF STRAIGHT INTERNSHIP before applying!

what does that mean?

I know in india and egypt etc they reqiure med. students to do 1 yr internship before been given the medical diploma, but my school does not have that pre-requisit.

as soon as i am done with my clinical rotation (includes Basic and elective rotations) i will be given my medical degree.

Does any body know anything about my doubt??? please please tell me and clarify it to me plz.

because in the US, as soon as u are done with step 1 and 2ck,cs you can apply for residancy. but this hospital says it requires internship before that. WTF is that???

plz help guys... even if you know only little that is still fine. dont just read it and go plz plz

its urgent

Many hospitals ask for 1 year clinical experience ie USCE like electives or externships not observerships

now family medicine has made this almost compulsory but here they want internship year in USA that is a prelim surgery or prelim medicine

which field are you trying for ??? some advanced fields need prelim year .
internship from home school is not counted

thank you very much bro,
really appreciate it.

Oh so when people say they have USCE It means they did 1yr of internship at US hospitals??? i thought they just did their clinical rotation which is part of the 3 and 4th year med school.

i am planning to apply for Int. med. bro

By the way, even in the US you have to do 1yr internship before applying for ressidancy??

USCE is not considered as a part of medical school in most of the countries. mostly people do 2 to 3 months just to get 3 LORS 1 year is rare unless you dont match you may do it
but infact you should not worry at all i guess Carribean med school. do their last 2 yrs in USA which is counted as 2 yrs of USCE and so you guys are preferred way more than any IMG ........ plus internship is first year of normal IM residency not done separately ..... relax...

goodluck

so u mean last 2 yrs of med school (i.e. clinical rotation = where we sit at the doctors clinic and see what he does and wt he speaks to the patient) is called INTERNSHIP OR US CLINICAL EXPERIANCE?

coz the hospital i wanted to apply for (in middle east) has mentioned it requires 12 months of rotating internship [COLOR="Red"BEFORE APPLYING FOR RESIDANCY[/COLOR]

this is wt is worrying me

so are you doing your last 2 years of med school in USA ??? if yes its sort of USCE NOT internship you dont apply for intenship separately in IM , the 1st year of IM is internship ...

put up the link of the website of your desired college asking for it so it gets more clear to understand what they want .......

hey i went to med school in pakistan. yes the internship was for a year, they called it housejob there. Its totally different from what we did in the clinical rotations because in housejob, we worked as doctors, we were on call and took care of everything in the wards and ER.

Stop You can't do that

Dubai hospitals does not provide residency for out-of-UAE graduates.
They only allow their own graduates, even not all of them, just UAE nationals!

When they say internship is a requirement they mean that you have to have one year internship after graduation because some of their grads do not do that.
