Important Policies Regarding Registration For Year 3 and 4 Courses
YEAR 3/4 CLERKSHIPS
Registration for clerkships are completed through a Lottery on OASIS. Requests for changes to a clerkship must be submitted by completing the Clerkship Change Request Form, and approved by both the Office of Clinical Education and the involved clerkship(s). If approved, changes are made to your schedule by the Geisel Registrar's Office.
ELECTIVES AND SUBINTERNSHIPS
Timely registration for electives and sub-internships both away and at Geisel is vitally important. It is your responsibility to check your schedule on OASIS regularly. If you do not see an approved elective/sub-internship on your OASIS schedule, you are NOT officially registered for the course.
MINIMUM OF FOUR WEEKS PRIOR TO THE START DATE OF THE ELECTIVE OR THE SUBINTERNSHIP
You MUST be registered through the Geisel Medical School BEFORE any rotation starts. Submit the Non-Established Elective / Sub-I Application a minimum of four weeks prior to the start of the rotation.
If you are NOT registered on OASIS, you will not be covered by liability insurance and fees will be assessed. If there is an emergency, the Geisel School of Medicine will not be able to locate you and a student performance evaluation will not be sent to your site on your behalf. Timely and complete registration for your rotations reflects on your professionalism as a medical student.
Failure to register for an elective or sub-internship four weeks prior to the start date will result in a fifty dollar ($50.00) fine. In the case of extenuating circumstances that are determined to be important, unavoidable, and persuasive, the Associate Registrar is authorized to waive this fine.
Starting a rotation, either away or at DHMC prior to being registered for the course will result in a fine of one hundred dollars ($100.00).
Completing an elective or a sub-internship without approval will result in a fine of two hundred dollars ($200.00) if retroactive credit is requested. In this situation, final approval of retroactive award of credit will be made by the Associate Dean for Clinical Education.
