The International Elective is an elective experience available to students who have completed their third year core rotations or with approval by the Assistant/Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs. This elective will expose the student to both public health and direct clinical experience in a variety of settings (may be within the US or abroad). As such, rotations that allow for observation of population health practice and/or directly supervised patient care are permitted. This elective allows students to see the depth and breadth of medicine (any specialty) through the global/international lens.
In order to participate in an international elective, students must:
- Submit the requisite Qualtrics Form at least 120 days prior to the rotation; this can be obtained from New Innovations or your Clerkship Coordinator. Paula Meyer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Contact the Marian University Director of International Student Success & Global Engagement to review international requirements and to determine if the location chosen is safe for travel. Rhonda J. Hinkle can be reached at email@example.com.
- Receive approval from the Assistant/Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs based on the quality of education the rotation will provide and supervision.
If approved by both the Office of International Student Success & Global Engagement and Clinical Affairs, Clerkship Coordinators will work to secure appropriate affiliation agreement.
If you do not already have a relationship with an established program, please find a list of approved opportunities below.
