Visiting Rotations for Medical Students for AY 2020-21
The Coalition for Physician Accountability Recommendations report, Medical students in the class of 2021: Moving across institutions for post graduate training, recommended that away rotations be cancelled except for specialty rotations that are unavailable at the home institution or are required for graduation (DO schools), and that even for these exceptions, travel to away rotations should be limited to geographically proximate locations.
Based on this report, for the 2020-21 academic year, Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) has suspended:
all incoming visiting rotations for students from other medical schools domestic and international through the fall semester. Students from other New England medical schools whose Student Affairs dean documents the exceptions above in an email to Ellen DiFiore Assistant Dean and Registrar at email@example.com may inquire about openings in the spring semester. We will not accept communication directly from students.
