Electives Offered in Other Programs or at Other Institutions
Students are permitted to take any course listed in the CLR Curriculum Guide as an elective. Only courses listed in the Curriculum guide are approved for CLR credit.
If a student wishes to take a course in the Graduate Program at MSSM, which is not listed in the Curriculum Guide, he/she must request approval from the Program Director prior to registering for the class.
If a student wishes to take an elective course offered at a different institution, the student will need to submit a course description and a syllabus from the Institution offering the elective course, together with a completed Elective Approval Form (see Appendix C), to the Clinical Research Education office. Approval must be given from the Clinical Research Education Program Director prior to enrolling in the course.
Upon completion of the elective course, the student will need to complete the Evaluation Form for Transfer of Credit (see Appendix C) and submit it to the Program Office along with an official transcript from the institution where the course was taken. The form and transcript must be submitted in order for the elective to appear on a student’s CLR transcript.
