Thank you for your interest in electives at Sinai Hospital. There are many electives to choose from, attached is our Elective Booklet for your review. In order to apply for an elective at Sinai Hospital, you must be currently enrolled in either an LCME or AOA accredited medical school.
After you have made your elective selection, complete the top portion of the application, indicating specific dates. Then submit it to the Dean of your Medical School or the Student Affairs Office. This application is for sub-internships and electives only, not Core Curriculum Requirements (if your Dean answers "yes" to question number 3 on the application, your application will be denied). When we receive the completed application, with verification of malpractice, student evaluations, and any other required documentation, the credentialing process will begin.
Due to Risk Management/Liability Insurance considerations, if you are doing any elective rotation that has a component at Sinai Hospital you must be registered and credentialed through the Office of Medical Education. The process includes verification of health insurance coverage, professional liability coverage, and that you are in good standing in the medical school. Please notify our office at least 1 month prior to the your start date. Credentialing also allows you to obtain badges, allowing you access to the Sinai campus.
Sinai Hospital does not have housing on campus and arrangements must be made on an individual basis by the student. For more information about housing or if you have questions, please contact me.
