D&I Graduation Requirements

P&S students are required to complete a total of 8 elective rotations in order to graduate from the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Of the 8 total electives,

  • 5 must be considered “clinical”;
  • 5 must be at CUMC or its affiliates;
  • 1 must be a Subinternship in Medicine, Pediatrics, or Surgery;
  • 1 must be Ready4Residency (R4R);
  • 1 must be an Interview/Vacation Month (A maximum of 2 months can be taken.).

To illustrate how this works in the D&I phase, students can follow this equation:
1 R4R month (1/14) +
1 Subinternship in Med, Peds, or Surg (1/14) +
4 months of Scholarly Project (4/14) +
2 max Interview/Vacation months (2/14) +
6 remaining months of electives (6/14) =
14 total months of D&I

P&S students are also encouraged to audit their schedules through D&I by using the Course Requirements Report in OASIS.
