MD: Procedure to Request an Alternate Educational Site or Clinical Assignment

In compliance with LCME Standard 10.9, students may formally request an alternate educational site or clinical assignment. Such requests must be made in writing (email) to the Registrar’s Office within two weeks of the release of the clinical assignment. Team assignments within individual clinical rotations or specific site concerns should be discussed with the appropriate Clerkship, ACR, Elective or Immersion Director. Students are also encouraged to contact Student Affairs at any time to help navigate unique circumstances or hardships. When necessary and appropriate, an alternate site will be assigned.
