Registration takes place every Monday morning (if Monday is a holiday, registration will take place on Tuesday), starting at 8:30am in MDCL Room 3101. At registration, you will meet with one of our Visiting Elective Coordinators. They will verify your elective information (correct specialty, dates, location, and scrub size if necessary) and provide you with an “Access Card” that will act as your primary ID badge, your security access to any restricted areas of the hospital, and your access to the ScrubEx machines. This will also be an opportunity to ask any questions prior to starting your first day at your elective.
Students who are taking electives outside of Hamilton do NOT need to come in for registration. In addition, students participating in family medicine electives that are at private practices in Hamilton do not need to come in (however, if you wish to get an ID badge for your elective, we will be more than happy to provide you with one. Just note the “Access Card” given to you will not provide you security access or access to the ScrubEx machines).
Registration is not mandatory for students to attend. However, if you do not attend, you will not get security access, access to the ScrubEx machines or an ID badge. This will likely make it very difficult to successfully complete your elective, so we suggest you come.
