Application Process

In addition to submitting your application through the Registrar’s office, we ask that you also send the clerkship director(s) at your desired site your CV and a copy of your transcript directly. This will help us facilitate the processing of applications. Interested students should submit their applications to the registrar’s office at least 3 months in advance of the desired clerkship start date. Students that do not provide a copy of their application to the clerkship directors will be notified of acceptance to the rotation by the Registrar approximately 4 weeks prior to the start of the clerkship. Those that do provide a copy of their application to the clerkship directors may be notified earlier.
