MD Graduation Requirements

The elective year allows students significant flexibility in selecting courses that are of importance to them. However, the following basic requirements must be met when designing the elective year:

  1. Students will select, with the aid of their career advisor, a sequence of eleven (11) 4-week periods as outlined below (a total of nine [9] required academic elective periods or 36 weeks). Two 2-week electives may be substituted for one 4-week elective where allowed by the curriculum. In general, semester-long courses will count as one 2-week rotation. (An additional interview period (MEL INT) may be substituted if a semester-long course is scheduled unless make-up or remediation periods are required):

    1. Required courses that are part of their educational track

    2. Regulations:

      • A minimum of 20 weeks of clinical electives as classified by type in the electives catalog (including track requirements)
      • No more than 12 weeks of a combination of externship, scholarly concentration or independent study. An exception to this policy can occur if students replace an Interview month with one of the above for an additional 4 weeks
      • No more than 24 weeks in any one department including track requirements
      • At least 20 weeks of courses must be taken on the students' home campus (the remainder can be at alternate campus or combined with externships as above)
      • One 4-week Interview Period (MEL INT) - optional
      • One 4-week USMLE Step 2 preparation period (MEL INT), additional interview period, or remediation period. – optional. See below for remediation/make-up policy.
      • With the exception of acting internships, externships, independent studies, and scholarly concentration electives, no course can be taken more than one time without special approval from the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education. Acting internships in the same specialty may be taken up to two times without prior approval.

    3. Any exceptions to track and graduation requirements caused by extenuating circumstances or resulting from a mid-year change in track must be pre-approved by the Associate Dean for Medical Education.

Required Remediation/Make-Up

For various reasons students may be required to remediate or makeup course work during the senior elective year. These requirements will be met as specified by each department under the following guidelines:

  • All third year requirements must be completed prior to the start of fourth year course work. Any exceptions must be approved by the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education. Students may enroll in a fourth year course if their only deficiency is the retake of a third year clerkship examination. If approved, that student may be enrolled in a fourth year course while preparing for the examination at the conclusion of that rotation period.
  • No more than 16 weeks of the elective year may be used for remediation without affecting the date of graduation. This time can only replace study or interview time and will not be counted as one of the nine (36 weeks) required elective periods. Any more time may result in delayed graduation. Fourth year courses may not be taken until after remedial/make-up requirements have been completed and all third year requirements have been met.
