IMPORTANT Scheduling Information

  1. Under no circumstances may you withdraw from a rotation with less than 30 days notice
  2. Schedule requests will not be considered after the 6 week deadline except in extenuating circumstances (such as the cancellation of a previously planned for elective)
  3. All change of elective forms are due one month before the start of the rotation.
    1. Registration will not be updated until a signed change of elective form is received by the Registrar’s Office. For insurance purposes, students should not report to a rotation that they are not registered for, so it is critical that a change of elective form is turned in prior to the rotation start date.
  4. There are no scheduled holidays. If you’re at an on-call/house rotation, please check with your team to see what your holiday responsibilities are. If you’re at a private practice you will work the regular office hours for that holiday.

VSLO, Clinician Nexus & Other Scheduling

UCF COM utilizes VSLO to schedule away rotations. However, not all institutions use VSLO. Host institutions typically begin accepting applications in April-May. Most do not begin processing applications until May. The Registrar will send you an email invitation for access to VSLO on February 1, 2023.

VSLO charges a flat fee of $15 for each elective. Clinician Nexus is free, but does require a background check and drug screen through Pre-Check which has a fee.

Rotation Instructions

  • It is the student’s responsibility to verify where and whom they report to before the start of each course no later than the Wednesday before the start of the rotation.  Some courses require that you contact the faculty a week before the start of the rotation.
  • If you are taking a course that is held at COM you will need a parking permit. You must park your car in student parking areas. Parking in other assigned areas will put you at risk of receiving a parking violation.
  • Course objectives and goals can be found in the course catalogue.  If you have any additional questions regarding the course requirements please ask your supervising preceptor.
  • You should meet with your preceptor on the 1st day to discuss their expectations of you.
  • Expect an Acting Internship to be more rigorous than an elective.
  • Remind your preceptor to complete your evaluation.  They will be sent an evaluation mid-way through your rotation via OASIS.  If your preceptor cannot login have them contact Ken Staack and he will provide login instructions.  Once you leave the site it becomes difficult to get the evaluation.  Your help in obtaining a completed evaluation is greatly appreciated!
  • If you want to take a hard copy of the evaluation to your preceptor you can print one out at the following link https://med.ucf.edu/academics/md-program/program-modules/m4-fourth-year-clerkships/evaluations/  Return the completed evaluation to Ken Staack via email or fax to his attention.
  • All course and faculty evaluations need to be completed in OASIS for you to view your grade in OASIS.
  • All M4 students should login to PACTS and view the instructional guide on the credentialing long form.  Once students have completed the long form each student should verify ALL documents for each site that they are scheduled to rotate at.   All documents in PACTs need to have a 2020 date.  Students should delete forms in PACTS that are not dated with a 2020 date.
  • Students are responsible for completing all credentialing paperwork or they will be at risk from being dropped from the scheduled rotation.
  • Students rotating at an HCA hospital will be required to complete a recent background check and drug screen through Pre-Check. Additional details will be listed in Clinician Nexus.
