Adding or Dropping Electives
Boston University School of Medicine students should call the telephone number listed for the elective in the “Fourth Year Elective Catalogue” on the web.
Please note all cancellations/additions of electives require signature approval of the elective supervisor.
Supervisors require one month notice to drop an elective. Any elective that you have not been officially released from may go in your record as a fail.
Boston University School of Medicine students who wish to do an elective at an institution other than an LCME accredited medical school should obtain a description of the elective from the prospective Supervisor and submit it along with an Outside Elective Approval Form to the comparable Department Head at Boston University School of Medicine.
For further information see Class of 2019 Fourth Year Schedule Guidelines
