Student Affairs ~ Registration Information

Visit this page often for information about registering for clinical rotations.

Pre-Clinical Scheduling Information

All T1 and T2 students are scheduled for required rotations by the Office of Student Affairs.  T1 and T2 students should attend Dean's Hours and monitor their email accounts for information on registering for required electives.

Clinical Scheduling Information

T3 students register for clinical rotations by preferencing a "donut" path in eMedley: students begin preferencing in late February; final donut paths are assigned in early March.  Attend required Dean's Hours and monitor your email for more information about preferencing your T3 path.

T4 students register for clinical rotations during their one-on-one registration appointment, assigned by lottery number.  T4 registration appointments begin in mid-January and are completed by mid-February.  Attend required Dean's Hours and monitor your email for more information about T4 registration appointments.

The following links will help guide you through the clinical scheduling process. 

  • eMedley log in: Use eMedley to review your T3 and T4 year-long schedules.  Always compare eMedley against Gibson Online for accuracy.
  • Rules for schedule changes: Review these rules carefully before you submit a schedule-change request.  Change requests (including appropriate approval) must be submitted at least a week before the block begins.

Away Rotation Information

Tulane T4s may be eligible to complete extramural clerkships ("away" rotations).  Students must complete all T3 core clerkships ("donut" clerkships) at Tulane. 

Students who wish to complete away rotations must have all away rotations pre-approved using our defined approval process.  No away rotations will be approved or added to students' transcripts retroactively.  Use this link for detailed information about the away approval and registration process.

All affiliation agreements are handled by the Office of Academic Affairs.

If your host institution requires documents such as mask fit proof, malpractice verification, etc., use this link to determine where you can get those documents.

Tulane University uses VSAS for students of United Statements medical schools who wish to complete electives at Tulane.  Not all departments are able to host visiting students.  Check VSAS for more information.  See our Visiting Student page for more information.

Tulane University cannot accommodate rotation requests from students who are enrolled at international schools of medicine.

Leave of Absence Information

Students may request a leave of absence for a variety of reasons, including pursuing research, completing a combined degree at Tulane or an advanced degree at another institution, remediating requirements or studying for USMLE exams, or attending to other personal reasons.

Students should seek advising from Dr. Kahn by completing the Leave of Absence Advising form and by reading this document carefully: How do I request a leave of absence?
