Sign Up for BUSM-Schneider 4th-Year Electives
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.
- Emergency Medicine
- Infectious Diseases
Procedures to Sign Up:
- 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.
- If there are more students interested in the electives than there are spaces available, a random lottery for the spaces will be performed.
- 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.
