Please be sure to read this if it applies to you: Action required this month for disability accommodations for clerkship locations
Students who require clerkship location accommodations to manage their personal medical conditions/disabilities must apply for and be approved by the Disability Resources for Students (DRS) office prior to July 1. Because it can take two to five weeks, sometimes longer, to be approved for accommodation with DRS, you should start the process as soon as possible (and no later than June 27).
- If you are not currently registered with DRS, please fill out a “new student application” and submit your documentation via the DRS services website.
- If you are already receiving accommodation through DRS and want to discuss clerkship locations, please schedule an appointment with Meghan Matthews, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information about the steps for requesting accommodation is outlined on the UW DRS “Getting Started” website.
Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month
No matter what type of Triple I project you’re doing this summer, it may be possible to share it at a conference – for example, the Western Student and Resident Medical Research Forum (WSMRF) — and/or get it published! This even includes non-traditional research options, like RUOP and GHIP! Let your mentors know you’re trying to do valuable and presentable work, ideally with some quantitative and qualitative data (e.g., surveys before and after your project). Presenting your work looks great on a CV! There is also a small amount of funding that may be available for travel here, and you can also ask your PI if they have project resources to help fund your presentation.
