Additional Clerkship Curriculum Information

Special Clinical Electives (398A Clerkships)

Each department has a 398A clerkship.  This designation can be used for a student-designed clerkship, provided it has the consent of a faculty preceptor who will supervise the student.  398A clerkships must be clinical, not research.

Students cannot add 398A clerkships directly to their Fishbowl schedules through the regular shuffles.  To add a 398A clerkship, contact the Associate Director of Clerkship Administration in the School of Medicine Registrar’s Office. Provide the faculty preceptor’s name and email address, the period, and duration of the clerkship.



For complete information on policies related to clerkship activities, please see the clerkship curriculum section of the MD Program Handbook.
