V. CLINICAL ROTATIONS

Elective Rotations: Limitations

Elective rotations are an important part of a Residentís education, and our program prides itself in the number, and diversity of available electives.  However, there are a few limitations to what one can do.
 

  1. Educational limitation:  The elective needs to be sponsored, and supervised, by clinical or regular Departmental faculty.
  1. Malpractice limitation:  If the elective is not a clinical operation of one of the UW Affiliated Hospitals, it needs to be approved as an off-site, community psychiatry or cross-cultural rotation for reasons of malpractice insurance.  Off-site rotations are only acceptable if they are sponsored by the Division of Community Psychiatry/Cross-Cultural Psychiatry; international rotations require the approval of the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs.
  1. Financial limitation:  If the elective does not come with a salary, the request for the elective rotation needs to be reviewed by the Residency Training Office to determine if funds are available to pay the Residentís salary.  (An unexpected imbalance between the number of people in funded and unfunded positions could potential create salary/budget problems.  Lease research all options before requesting elective rotations.)

NOTE: Elective rotation form:  Once your elective plans are finalized, you need to fill out the elective rotation form (see Appendix O) and return it to the training program office.  Your salary can not be processed unless the residency program office has been informed exactly at which site you are for each half-day of the week.
