Medical Student Rotations

3rd & 4th Year

We will accept applications for the 2014-2015 academic year beginning March 1, 2014

Medical students interested in rotating at Allegiance Health can expect to participate in a clinical team to provide patient care. There will be plenty of opportunity for hands-on experience. 

Please fill out this application for a rotation. Please refer to your Clerkship Coordinator for the required documentation for your rotation at Allegiance Health. The Student Coordinator will contact you after receiving your application and required documentation.

All correspondence will be done by e-mail and it may take up to three working days to receive an e-mail reply.

Note: General surgery audition rotations will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. We encourage two week rotations in order to accommodate as many requests as we can. After we review applications in ERAS, we will contact those that we have chosen not to interview, but have scheduled audition rotations, to see if they are still interested in rotating at Allegiance Health.
