Effective May 18, 2020:
Dear Visiting Students:
Stritch is following the AAMC/LCME recommendations regarding externships/away rotations (https://www.aamc.org/system/files/2020-05/covid19_Final_Recommendations_Executive%20Summary_Final_05112020.pdf), which state the following.
“Recommendation 1 ― Away Rotations for Medical Students
The WG (Working Group) recommends that for the 2020-2021 academic year, away rotations be discouraged, except under the following circumstances:
- Learners who have a specialty interest and do not have access to a clinical experience with a residency program in that specialty in their school’s system.
- Learners for whom an away rotation is required for graduation or accreditation requirements.
Individuals meeting these exceptions should limit the number of away rotations as much as possible. Students should consider geographically proximate programs, when appropriate, to meet learning needs.”
If a student meets the exceptions listed above and needs to do an away elective, they should first check with the SSOM clinical department where the rotation is housed s. The individual departments have the final say if they will or will not host visiting students. Some SSOM departments have already decided not to host visitors this academic year (i.e., Pediatrics).
We strongly recommend that they be a local/nearby (Indiana versus New York). In addition, students need to be cognizant of the fact that state law or policy may require a period of quarantine before entering Illinois or returning to your home state. In addition, visiting students are limited to 4 weeks only.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the SSOM Office of Registration and Records.
