Clerkship and Senior Medicine Rotations PDFDownload to print

Information on clerkship and senior medicine rotations, including the selection process, may be obtained by contacting the Office of Academic Services and Enrollment Analytics. 

The date of the selection of senior medicine rotations will be determined by the Office of Academic Services and Enrollment Analytics. If an agreement on senior medicine selections within a student group cannot be reached by the group members, final determination will be made by random selection by a representative of the Office of Academic Services and Enrollment Analytics. 

Once a student selects a clerkship or a senior medicine rotation, the student is required to attend that specific rotation for the month chosen. Schedule changes, including dropping rotations or switching months, are not permitted. Students who do not attend a scheduled rotation will fail the rotation and be required to make up the rotation beginning May of the student's 4th year (location and specifics of make-up rotations will be assigned to the student by the Office of Academic Services and Enrollment Analytics). Students will also receive a professionalism deficiency evaluation and be placed on academic probation. In rare cases, schedule changes may be permitted provided that the student can demonstrate extreme circumstances that will prevent the completion of a particular rotation. Students who wish to be considered for this type of schedule change must submit the request in writing along with supporting documentation to the Office of Academic Services and Enrollment Analytics. Once the request is reviewed, the student will be sent notification of the decision either approving or denying the requested schedule change. If the request is denied, the student will be required to attend the rotation as scheduled. 

At the conclusion of each clerkship and senior medicine rotation, students will receive a link via e-mail to a rotation feedback survey The completion of the rotation feedback survey for each rotation by the deadline given is mandatory. Students who miss the deadline will be subject to a professionalism deficiency evaluation as well as possibly additional disciplinary actions (please see the Professionalism Deficiency Evaluation policy for further information).
