Healthcare Employment During School (Practice of Medicine)

Employment of any kind during medical school is highly discouraged. The demands of medical school are so high as to preclude most employment opportunities. Student doctors are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Financial Services for help with budgeting if needed.

Medical students are prohibited from engaging in any activities (from the time of matriculation to the University until graduation or other termination of student status) that might be construed as the practice of medicine without the proper supervision and direction of designated members of the faculty, whether such activities are engaged in for compensation, done as a volunteer, or otherwise. Any student who is a healthcare worker and wishes to be employed in the health-related field must contact the Office of Student Affairs and forward a request to the Dean. All decisions of approval or disapproval will come from the Dean.  

Students who are not in compliance with the requirements above may be requested to appear before the Honor Code Committee and are subject to dismissal from the University.
