The following fourth-year clinical electives are available at Roy Lester Schneider Hospital (St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands) for blocks 17, 18, 19 and 20 of the 2014-15 academic year. Each block accommodates a maximum of 6 students.

  • Cardiology
  • Emergency Medicine

Procedures to Sign Up:

  1. If you are part of the BUSM class of 2015, and you are interested in undertaking one of these electives for the 2014-15 academic year, e-mail Patti Gibbs with two choices of elective blocks and specialties by March 21, 2014. Final placements will be announced by March 28, 2014.
  2. If there are more students interested in the electives than there are spaces available, a random lottery for the spaces will be performed.
  3. Once spaces are confirmed by Patti Gibbs, electives will automatically be added to students’ 4th-year schedules via the Registrar’s Office. A paper ADD/DROP form from the registrar’s office IS NOT NEEDED. Those students who did not secure an elective placement will be put on a waiting list in the event that a student drops the elective.
