Clerkship and Electives FAQs

Fourth Year Rotation Schedule

  1. Do we rank which order we schedule each rotation?
    The preferencing screen allows students to show which rotation they want, where, and when. If a center has a spot during the time they want the rotation, they can preference that center. The centers do not have spots for Indy students for all clerkships for all rotations, only some. They enter their preferences in order of preference. So, whatever they want the most should be listed at the top of their preferences.
  2. Do we get to rank which hospital we do each rotation?
    Not through the Registrar’s office. Students will be asked by each clerkship to rank their preferences for site and sometimes service for that specific clerkship. The only exception to this is for Emergency Medicine in the fourth year. Students can preference by rotation and site. This may be something to shoot for next year, but the clerkships are asking to assign this year.
  3. What are options for electives?
    See elective catalog and talk with a lead advisor
