Apply for international rotations including Samaritan’s Purse rotations and student-found opportunities:
OMS-IV student-doctors have the option to do audition rotations at institutions other than our Core Hospital Affiliates by submitting an Affiliation Agreement Request.
The Office of Affiliations will no longer be processing agreement requests that are submitted via email.
Submitting an affiliation agreement request does not guarantee that we will be able to finalize an agreement with the requested institution. New agreement requests may take 4-6 months or longer to process. You should plan to have backup rotations in place with institutions we are currently affiliated with in case the Office of Affiliations is unable to come to agreeable terms with the institution or it takes longer than 4-6 months to process.
All email correspondence regarding affiliation agreements should be sent to LUCOMAffiliations@liberty.edu. Do not email individual staff members regarding affiliation agreements.
Per LUCOM policy, you as a student-doctor are responsible for all fees associated with clinical rotations that occur away from the Core Rotation sites. If an away site requires that an administrative fee be paid by the COM, the student will pay this additional cost to the COM, who will then arrange to send payment to that specific site.
As LUCOM student-doctors continue in their clinical education, the season for Letters of Recommendation (LoR) will soon be here. The Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) is a service of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and consists of MyERAS for applicants, Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS) for medical schools, Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS) for training programs and the ERAS Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP) for LoR Authors (LoRA).
Each clinical adjunct faculty is asked to review the following documents:
- ERAS LoR and LoR Author Support
- LoRP User Guide – step-by-step instructions for letter authors
- LoR Document Support – components of a compelling letter, guidelines for letter-writing (material forthcoming)
- LoR Release
- MyERAS Residency User Guide – instructions, information on features of the ERAS for student-doctors (pages 26-29 specifically reference LoRs)
- ERAS Student Screenshots – detailing the process for student-doctors, since they are not included in the MyERAS guide
- ERAS-LoR Portal User Guide
