Clinical Clerkship Scheduling 

All clinical clerkship scheduling and changes are made through our office.  Due to limited capacity, M3 and M4 schedules are generated using an online request system and lottery.  Information on M4/Advanced Phase schedules is presented in the M3 class meeting held in late August.  Information on M3/Core schedules is presented in the M1 class meeting held in late spring.  Rosters for the new clinical year are distributed to departments electronically on a regular basis.  Any student asking to add or drop clerkships should be directed to Joan Smothers in 1216 MERF.
