4th Year Ambulatory Community Selective (ACS) - Ambulatory Site Preferences
Due Date:  April 18, 2014
Contact for assistance: 
Brian Sullivan

Every 4th year student is required to fill out ACS site preferences.  Tell us where you have available housing in Texas and/or where you would like to work with a community teaching physician for 4 weeks.

What is the deadline to have my site preferences submitted online?
MSIII and MSIV students must have their site preferences submitted online by April 18, 2014.

What happens if I miss these deadlines?

We will place you somewhere in the state where we have housing and a community teaching physician.  Even if you fill out site preferences, we cannot guarantee you will get your preferred sites.  This website gives us a good idea, however, where you have housing and where you would like to do your rotation.

 

What is meant by commutable vs. non-commutable?

Commutable means that you prefer to be placed within 50 miles of where you are based.  Non-commutable means that you would like to leave the area where you are based and do the outpatient portion of your rotation in another part of the state.

What is a Student-Created site?

A student created site means that the medical student finds their own community teaching physician and does so in an area where they also have housing.  Students may not work with physicians who are relatives, but students are allowed to find their own community teaching physicians.  If you want to ask a physician that you know to be your preceptor, they must be board certified in the same discipline as the course they are expected to teach.  For example, the 3rd year Pediatric Clerkship must be taught by a physician that is a board certified generalist in Pediatrics.  If you decide to create your own site, please visit the website that explains the rules for finding your own ambulatory preceptor.

 

Why do I have to give a reason for staying commutable to where I am based?

Most students will choose their preferences in this order:  Galveston, Houston and Austin.  It is impossible for us to place everyone in these three locations.  Therefore, we ask you to justify the reason we should keep you commutable to the Galveston area.  If you choose these three cities as your top three choices, please give us a 4th and 5th option.  There is a chance that we will have to send you to your 4th or 5th option.

 

What if I do not see the city listed where I would like to do this rotation?

Use the text box at the bottom of the form to tell us specifics about your site request.  Remember to provide as much information as possible, including the zip codes where you have housing in major metro areas like Dallas and Houston.

 

For example, if you actually want to be in Arlington for your outpatient rotation, select Dallas at the top of the form and then tell us Arlington in the text box at the bottom of the form.  Include the Arlington zip code where you have housing.
