Course Registration

The Classes of 2016 and 2017 will use OASIS for all D&I registration: Students who do not have access to OASIS should submit a ticket using the "OPEN TICKET: Contact P&S Education" function in UserVoice.

Reviewing the OASIS Catalog
Students should review the OASIS catalog to determine which electives they want to take, and what months electives are offered. Not all electives are offered during all months, so students are encouraged to read the descriptions carefully, including the "Notes" section for each course link. It is recommended that students review the OASIS catalog thoroughly before each lottery opens, as courses can make changes throughout the year.

Course Codes
Course codes consist of a two-letter prefix, a sequence number, and a one-letter suffix. The prefix indicates the specialty or department, and the suffix indicates the location of the elective. Example: UR01P is an elective in Urology (UR) at New York Presbyterian Hospital (P).

Registration Process
Three times a year, lotteries will be coordinated to set up preliminary enrollment. Students will make selections within OASIS, and the lottery will enroll students based on availability and each student's lottery number.

After each lottery, students will be given the opportunity to add/drop their courses at any time of day, and up until 4 weeks (28 days) prior to each start date. For more information on the OASIS registration process, please review UserVoice.

Scholarly Project
To register for SP months, you must add yourself to the waitlists for the months that correspond with your proposal. If these months change for any reason, you must notify the SPP Coordinator by contacting Registration for the first month will occur after students have declared a track, submitted a mentor agreement, and submitted a proposal.

Waitlisted Courses
Several electives in the OASIS catalog are listed as 'Waitlisted' courses, because of the site location (Stamford and Bassett), or because their enrollment may be variable throughout the year. These are courses that require permission from the course director or site before enrollment can be secured. These courses cannot be added during the lottery. Once the lottery is closed and results have been released, add/drop settings will open up, and students can add themselves to the wait list for these courses. In order to best capture first-come, first-serve interest for a course, students are discouraged from reaching out to the course director or administrator prior to each semester lottery. After the lottery, students may reach out for permission, and registration will be approved once confirmation is forwarded to

Enrollment in electives at Bassett Healthcare must have approval from Bassett before registration is finalized. After each lottery, students may contact the Office of Medical Education at the hospital at (800) 852-4566 for more details.

Self-Arranged Electives: Preceptorships and Research
All self-arranged preceptorships and research electives are included in the OASIS catalog. If you plan to arrange or have already arranged a preceptorship or research elective, please review the instructions in UserVoice.

Away Electives
If you have arranged an away elective that is 4 weeks in length (3 weeks for Uni of California system), please review the instructions in UserVoice.

Interview/Vacation Months
To register for Vacation/Interview months, students will add two different courses: OME-VA91P and OME-VA92P. Students are advised to register these in sequential order, with the OME-VA91P as the first Interview/Vacation month, and VA92P as the second. Vacation can be found in the OME P&S Office of Medical Education department in OASIS.
