Thank you for your interest in participating in a USU Family Medicine 4th year elective rotation. This step-by-step guide will help you complete the process. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Simon Auster for more information.
Step 1: Select the rotation you want to complete and find a location where the rotation is offered. If the course is already in the USUHS catalog, skip to step 5.
Step 2: If the course is not in the catalog, contact Ms. Jennifer Nuetzi-James in the Agreements Office to determine whether a memorandum of understanding (MOU) exists between USUHS and the location for your rotation. If it does, skip to step 5 (yeah!)
Step 3: If an MOU does not currently exist, contact Dr. Simon Auster and Ms. Jennifer Nuetzi-James with the following information to establish the MOU. Please note: establishing an MOU can take weeks. Please start this process promptly to avoid last minute problems.
Step 4: Once the MOU is in place, we need to establish a rotation and course number for the rotation. To do this, you need to e-mail Dr. Simon Auster with the following information:
Step 5: Once both an MOU is in place and a course number has been assigned, complete the top portion of USU Form 1304 and send an electronic or scanned copy to your site preceptor.
Step 6: After the USU Form 1304 is signed by your site preceptor, take a copy to the department of student affairs, obtain their signature, and give/e-mail a copy to Ms. Xochilth Torres and Dr. Simon Auster.
