    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone lives or has lived at St. George's...especially in an apartment...I have a family, and have to go down for January's entering class. If you can give me any info about the cost of living there, food, where to live...it would be great!
    ;)

    JL, I graduated ther ein 1999. I did my internship in syrcuase (before they were wacking each other over the heads with billard ball) and am at Johns Hopkins in Rad-onc as a PGY03 resident now.
    All the best to you.

    Stephew, what is Rad-onc as a PGY03??
    Wow, whatever Rad-onc PGY03 means, so students out of SGU or Ross can get residency in US, huh?
    If you don't mind, can you tell me more about this..?
    Do your fellow students ask each other which school that they attened?

    mr Jl: Syracuse? you can walk into a spot. I loved my internship with Dr. Heisig in medicine. They love sgu students.

    Sgu students most certainly get spots and some excellent ones; recently we graduated a neurosurgeon (but admittedly the first in a loooong time!) and a couple of ortho guys. Ross does well in terms of residency to the extent I know.

    Rad onc is my field-radiation oncology. PGY-3 is post grad year 3-that is internship is year one, then you go into rad onc for years 2-5. Im year there (Some use R for resident which makes me R2 PGY-1 is interm R1 is PGY2 as a resident etc. Its convoluted)

    I dont have fellow students but efllow residents! If im palsy with them it where I went to school comes up in conversation. In syrcause lots were from sgu. Here Im the one and only. its a matter of interest and that's about it. they only care that youre a good doc and they figure if you made it, you made it.

    to you all three imporant things to know
    1)find a schools pass rate
    2) find the % of any incoming class that MAKES it to the boards WITH their class (ie if half fail out, even if the remaining had a 95% pass rate that's still abyssmal.
    3) make sure they are honest with residency placement. that is if a student goes to say yale nowalk, they make it clear its not yale University proper (rather a fine community hospital)

    Jl: I note you write "internships"-do you mean first year as resident or clinical rotations as a med student? important designation; you can't do clinical rotations as a med student as its a non affilliate-however you can do an "outside elective" there for up to 12 weeks. Syrcuase also takes several sgu folk in transfer each year.
