Information for students in clinical clerkships during Summer 2023

Deadline: 3 p.m. AK, 4 p.m. PT and 5 p.m. MT on Thursday, June 22, 2024.

What’s at stake:

  • If you are not registered but should beYou will not be enrolled in courses for the Summer 2023 quarter, which begins on Monday, June 26. Without registering, you will not receive credit for the courses, they will not appear on your transcript, and you will not be on track to graduate.
  •  If you are registered but should not be: You will be charged for courses you do not attend and may receive a failing grade.

Here’s why we’re asking you to do this:

The school has registered students for Summer quarter clerkships with the UW Office of the University Registrar. If you are taking SOM clinical courses during the Summer quarter, it is your responsibility to verify that you are registered correctly for CONJ 699. To verify your registration, log in to MyUW and look for CONJ 699 on your schedule for Summer 2023. Follow any prompts that the University indicates.

 Let the school know immediately at if you are not registered for this course, but should be, or if you are registered, but should not be.

 DO NOT adjust your CONJ 699 registration in MyUW – instead, contact the team at

We’re sooooo close to achieving 60 percent in survey participation

Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

Now is a great time to start writing your personal statement! It is nice to have it done early so you know your narrative well when asked about it on your rotations in your desired field. You’ll also be able to give it to your letter writers so they get to know you better. They may even offer feedback! Of course, you’ll add more to your personal statement after your summer rotations, but get started here when you get a chance.
