An individualized clinical experience or independent curricular plan may be arranged with a faculty member. A thoughtfully written proposal, outlining the goals and objectives of the month, must be submitted six weeks prior to the elective month. The proposal must carry the signed approval of the preceptor. An electronic copy is acceptable but must come from the preceptor's email address with the proposal attached, along with a note of approval. The hard copy or email should be sent to the School Registrar, Mrs. Harlow. Once the Dean of Students approves the elective for credit, the appropriate course will be added to your schedule. Pre-approval of the elective is required in order to receive credit for an elective month and the course must be on your schedule within the four-week change deadline.
