There was an email regarding online electives for period 10. If you are pediatrics or surgery does this apply as well or is it primarily for students that are finishing a rotation on April 9th.

will the pass/fail be applied retroactively to completed clerkships so we compares apples to apples?
Joey Zhou
01:02:18
Are there currently any talks nationally of delaying the Match/Application process to allow students to make up any aways/letters of recommendation?
Melissa
01:02:25
Is there a plan to continue pass/fail for the remained of the academic year (periods 10-12)?
Preston - UTMB
01:03:19
Since the previous return to clinic date of April 3rd is no longer realistic, is there a new anticipated return date?
Gustavo Mastroleo
01:03:22
In regards to Period 9 Elective, Dr. Farr sent an email about a 1 week online elective. For clarification, do we need to complete 2 weeks of elective credit or 1 week?
James Slauson
01:05:30
Is there any discussion about changing tuition or tuition reimbursement if we have to continue to do core clerkships online as part of what we’re paying for is the opportunity to learn in person instead of online?
danielcarlinsands
01:11:26
how many days of a 6-week clerkship need to be “clinical” (in-person or telemedicine) days for us to receive credit? Is there a chance that some of our core clerkships will need to be moved to 4th year?
Preston - UTMB
01:13:14
Students who had a clinical elective for period 10 cancelled, will the substitute online elective count as 3 or 4 credits?
Son
01:13:31
Although we are continuing with our core clerkships (OBGYN, psych, Peds, Surg) online, do you anticipate we will be required to make up the clinical portion in the future or will the online course alone satisfy the course completion requirement?
ashtonhierholzer
01:16:35
Will the “make up” clinical time be at the beginning of 4th year or will we be able to choose when these will best fit our schedules?
michaelpoliner
01:16:41
Is neurology working on contingency plans for later periods or will people be dropped from the class?
Soujanya Koduri
01:20:06
Will orientation for the upcoming core clerkship be online or in-person?
Edobbin
01:20:10
We got an email about our next core clerkships starting on Monday April 6th, is this still the case?
Son
01:21:16
Will we still be able to receive Pass/Fail grade from our core classes by the end of the respective periods without having complete that “make up” clinical time? Or will grades be on hold until we complete that make up clinical time?
Paulette
01:24:01
Will there be changes to the graduation requirements? Will elective requirements be waived or reduced?
Paulette
01:24:21
to allow for making up of clinical times

question on behalf of anther student
Eunice Ko
01:28:24
one student is looking to going to Psych, but her Psych block is next (and is likely to be interrupted by COVID).
Eunice Ko
01:28:28
sorry sstill typing
vanessa
01:28:56
We’ve all signed up for Step 2 CS which is only offered in 5 cities and certain times. Are there plans to make any changes to the requirement for when this is due or opening more dates etc.?
Eunice Ko
01:29:08
she was wondering if it would be possible to switch Psych into a later block (with one of her willing classmates) in order to increase the probability that she has a significant in-person component of Psych (after COVID is over)
