M1 Summer Research Information

(Class of 2017 only)

It is your responsibility to make sure that you complete this form on or before Monday, April 1, 2014, so that enrollment and/or financial aid are completed in a timely manner.  The completed form should be submitted electronically by this deadline in order to receive academic elective credit. Do not complete this form until you have been accepted/approved for enrollment, i.e. have been notified by the course director that you have been accepted to participate or have had your research or clinical education proposal approved. You must be in good academic standing (2.0 OGPA for Research or Clinical Education electives); 2.5 OGPA for Community Health Project or Medical Education electives; or, as established by the individual program/elective director. A petition for a waiver of this requirement can be submitted to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. Students who must repeat a course during the summer will not be allowed to enroll in a summer elective unless they have successfully completed the course and received permission to enroll in an elective from the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.

Financial Aid is available for students who are enrolled for the Summer 2014 session.

Once you have received permission/acceptance to enroll, please complete the form below. Review the listing of course numbers and make sure you enroll in the correct course.

The completed form(s) must contain a written description of the educational experience, the reason for proposing such a program and written indication of faculty or supervisory personnel of their willingness to evaluate the student's performance. Elective credit will be accrued at the rate of two credits for four weeks or four credits for eight weeks. The maximum number of elective credits hours you can obtain over the summer between your first and second year of medical school is four.
