Application and Scheduling

Application and Scheduling

Start Date
Please refer to our Medical Student Academic Rotation Calendar to select weeks that fit your schedule. 
Length
Clerkships are four weeks in length.  Visiting students are limited to 16 weeks (Four 4-week rotations) initially.  Additional rotations may be considered after at least one rotation is successfully completed.
Changes
Once clerkships have been confirmed, changes in or rescheduling of clerkship assignments are not permitted. 
Cancellations
If there is an emergency and the confirmed rotation cannot be completed, a $350 cancellation fee will incur if notification of the cancellation is not given within 30 days of the scheduled rotation.
Submission
Please submit your completed application along with a copy of your USMLE Step I score and an up-to-date university transcript (unofficial).  You will receive a response via email when your application has been received.  From there, it can take approximately six weeks following the date the paperwork is received for your application to be processed.  Please note that calling to see if paperwork has been received is highly discouraged and will only prolong the scheduling process.
