Hi,

I am interested in doing an elective at Cornell/Memorial Sloan. Does anyone know of any particular elective there that they would recommend, either from hearing about it or having done it themselves?

thanks.

p.s. is this the right forum for this question?

Which field are you interested in? In something medicine-related, or something surgery-related?

I tried looking up the electives they have and most of the "good ones" are only for cornell students though .. bummer....

http://www.med.cornell.edu/education/curriculum/fourth/electives/ove_vis_stu.html

http://wo-pub2.med.cornell.edu/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Electives?name1=Fourth+Year+Curriculum&type1=2Select&name2=Electives&type2=3Select&name3=Courses&type3=4Active

In case you don't have the links to the website..

make sure you have the module dates right as i don't think they are flexibl with dates (double check on that....but i think i read it somewhere on that website)

Good Luck.

I think the application process for Sloan Kettering is separate from Cornell's. Cornell students still get first choice, but it's a different app process.

My friend did a surg onc away at Sloan Kettering. It was a great experience, and he had a wonderful time there, and learned a LOT. Good luck! :luck:

I think you can go with either process (thru Cornell or Sloan). I have seen those electives at Cornell's website as well (which for some reason is not working right now)... and except for I think the M-115 course (which takes 3), others mostly take 1 student. I have heard the same things about Kettering..a nice place to do an elective and learn a lot.

As far as I know, Memorial's application process is entirely separate.

I also applied to MMSK months ago and still no ruling! They said by the end of June I should have an answer. It's tough because my home school needs three months notice for away rotations. What is so hard about scheduling these rotations for them? Has anyone got an answer?
