January 11, 2013 Class Meeting Handout
Listed below are the 11 third year clinical rotation tracks for the 2013-14 academic year for Kansas City students. Students may specify their preference to begin their third year clinical curriculum in a 4-, 6- or 8- week clerkship in the Fall semester. Students will be randomly assigned to a specific track based on their preference and course enrollment limits set by each clerkship director. You can choose to go to a rural Network site to complete a portion of the following clerkships: Family Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, General Surgery and Pediatrics.
If you have specific (extenuating) reason for specifying a 4-week, 6-week or 8-week track in the Fall semester (pregnancy, wedding, Philmont in June, July or August, etc.) please complete the Track Explanation form.
Final track choices will be due Noon on Friday, February 8, 2013. Results of the track lottery will be distributed by March 8, 2013.
To move from field to field, use the TAB key or the mouse.

Clinical Obligations and Holidays
The beginning and ending dates of each third year module is listed above. Each module begins on Monday at 8:00 a.m. and ends on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Holidays are at the discretion of each attending physician for all clinical students. The rationale is that students are members of the health care team. They must act and be treated as professionals. Patient care responsibilities are their priority. Departments may choose to give their enrolled students "free days" on other state observed holidays, i.e. Martin Luther King, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday following Thanksgiving. Students are already on break over the Christmas and New Year's Day holidays in both the third and fourth year.
