Medical Student Rotations
Medical student rotations are available at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego; however, since Rady Children’s is not a medical school, we cannot offer academic credit.
To secure a rotation and receive an educational credit, fourth-year visiting medical students must first contact the fourth-year clerkship coordinator at UC San Diego’s Office of Learning Resources. The coordinator will assign a rotation in the pediatric specialty of the student’s choice if space is available. Please click on the links below for more detailed information.
How to secure a rotation (medical students)
For fourth-year medical students looking to complete an elective at Rady Children’s for academic credit:
- To receive educational credit, all fourth-year medical students must have their rotation at Rady Children’s campus approved by UCSD School of Medicine. Contact Adrienne Edwards at UCSD School of Medicine for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org: 858-534-1396).
- Once rotation dates are secured, students should complete the Rady Children’s GME paperwork. Paperwork needs to be filled out for each academic year in which you rotate at Rady Children’s.
- At least two weeks prior to rotation start date, fax completed paperwork to 858-966-7477. Computer access and badge privileges will be granted upon receipt.
- Please contact the appropriate RCHSD Division Administrator to contact regarding schedules and day-to-day duties.
