Who can see your viewing activity?
Hello everyone. If you have questions, please post them here in the chat and we will attempt to answer them as we go through the Townhall.
Where can we find this recording afterwards? Folks on the pediatrics rotation has lecture going on right now. I’m trying to multitask and listen to both lectures but it’s a bit difficult.
Who do we talk to to set up a meeting to discuss a plan of action for more than one 4th year experience if we think it’s important?
Yes, if it’s not offered at UTMB
If you are accepted to more than one away rotation and have to turn one down, is it looked upon negatively by the program?
I’ve seen a few sites (this may be pre-recommendation time / last year’s VSAS) that say students can’t come unless they are required by their school. Are we required to do an away?
oops sorry everyone
I know some third years doing all of their rotations in Houston...is this the same process as single away rotations?
any specifics in the rules pertaining to away rotations in a state other than Texas?
I just wanted to clarify if UTMB SOM is requiring us to do an away or virtual or whatever option.
Will UTMB allow us to do in-person interviews in the Fall (if a program happens to offer it)?
Will it look bad if we do an away but our residency does not require one?
Why would anyone ever want to leave Texas?!?
Thank you. Where can I find information on site rotations?
@Robyn there are Houston specific electives you can look at in the elective brochure

Dr. Schatte, do you know if EM PD’s are still in agreement with students having one SLOE for this year as well?
Any word about ERAS being pushed back to October?
@Cresencio, not sure yet. I have monthly meetings with some of those leaders and no decision yet.

If we do multiple aways in the same city is that more likely to be allowed? For ex, if we do ones at mcgoverna and baylor?
Even if we plan on only doing 1 away rotation, should we apply to a few programs in case we don’t get accepting to our first or second choice?
Very few institutions accept MS3s for away rotations.
@Jacob, I would email that question to Lisa Pearce. She will know better that specific question.
is there a slight chance the ERAS application will be push back to October as it was the case in 2020?
i heard rumors, I am only seeking clarification. thank you.
Something for students to keep in mind: these are widespread recommendations based on a nationwide health situation, so if they're affecting you, they're also affecting basically everyone else going into your Match year. This doesn't put you at a disadvantage!!!
This is true
Is there any way to tell the exact dates for the away elective?Like start and end dates?
@Katherine, take a look at VSAS by school for dates.
thank you for clarifying
@Dr. Schatte, I looked and they did not have them up yet But I can look closer to april

The 6 clinical elective credits are including in the 24 total right?
Yes, 6 is counted in the cumulative 24 total. The Minimester does NOT count towards that number.
Will UTMB receive the new vaccine (single dose)?
Please get vaccinated for your patients to reduce your risk to spreading to your patients.
When do we hear back about accepted aways?
So we need to upload vaccination information if we got it through employee services here at UTMB?
Please allow 90 days for affiliation agreements. Always have a back up plan
For programs not historically requiring aways, is there any use in doing an away after ERAS submission if we cannot secure a spot before then ?
After rank list is submitted, @Waleed? No - no benefit then
before rank list
thank you very much for all the information
I look forward to working with everyone in the HSS course!
The HSS longitudinal course does not take up any particular elective period correct?
