MED - 781 Research in Medicine


Students may arrange research rotations individually with faculty at Rush. In order to receive credit for such a rotation, the person to whom the student will be responsible must write a letter describing the student’s activities, responsibilities, amount of supervision, and the specific dates of the rotation. Credit toward graduation is granted assuming that the research project is ongoing throughout the academic year. Students must submit a proposal to the Office of Clinical Curriculum for approval at least eight weeks before the rotation and must have written approval from the Director of Clinical Curriculum before beginning the rotation. Research rotations are scheduled for a minimum of four weeks of credit with the expectation that the full project will extend beyond the formal course duration. Depending on the proposal, the weeks of credit may or may not apply to the rule of eight weeks maximum credit for coursework in a single subspecialty. This decision is at the discretion of the Office of Clinical Curriculum. Elective Retake Counts for Credit: Yes. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: Yes. Credit(s): 4-8
