Clerkship and Electives FAQs

1) Do we rank which order we schedule each rotation?
The preferencing screen allows students to show which rotation they want, where, and when. If a center has a spot during the time they want the rotation, they can preference that center. The centers do not have spots for Indy students for all clerkships for all rotations, only some. They enter their preferences in order of preference. So, whatever they want the most should be listed at the top of their preferences.

2) Do we get to rank which hospital we do each rotation?
Not through the Registrar’s office. Students will be asked by each clerkship to rank their preferences for site and sometimes service for that specific clerkship. The only exception to this is for Emergency Medicine in the fourth year. Students can preference by rotation and site. This may be something to shoot for next year, but the clerkships are asking to assign this year.

3) What are options for electives?
See elective catalog and talk with a lead advisor

4) Are we going to have each Medicine rotation consecutively (4 weeks followed by 4 weeks) (same for Peds, Gensurg/Surg subspecialty)?
Yes, the 8 week clerkships are scheduled as an 8 week rotation, not 2 separate 4-week rotations. Although they may potentially switch locations in between the four weeks.

Administrative Resources

  • Health & Disability Insurance
  • MS IV Elective Change Form
  • MS IV Special Elective Request Form
  • Change Personal Information — address, name, birth date, or student ID number.
  • Printing Subsidy — Part of the student technology fee at the IUSM–Indy campus is used to offset students’ printing costs. Third and fourth year students receive an allotment of 200 pages each. You can use your Jagtag (student ID) to print for free in the Medical Library and in MS016A. When your subsidy is almost exhausted, notify Card Services to switch to your own funds. (The switch-over doesn’t happen automatically until you hit zero, and when it does, you could lose printing capability until the next morning.)
