Elective Clerkship Information

Elective Clerkships

Electives can be set up on E*Value one of two ways, referred to as the E*Value Status.  Some have availability pre-entered into E*Value.  Others are only entered once a student is given permission to take the elective.  The E*Value status of an elective is listed in the Course Catalog information. Electives are either one or the other – there is no elective with pre-set availability that would have different “hidden” availability.  Likewise, all electives requiring E*Value set-up will not have pre-set availability open in E*Value.  All required clerkships are pre-set up in E*Value.

Permission-Only Electives

Some electives are Permission Only. This means that it is necessary for you to obtain permission from the appropriate departmental Clerkship Administrator before you can register for the elective. Clerkships have this status for a variety of reasons, but most often it is because it is necessary to check with the preceptor to make sure they are available. Permission Only status is listed in the Elective Catalog, and you can find a “cheat sheet” below. Please note that all permission-only electives need to align with the timeframes established by the clinical calendar.
