If special consideration warrants a clerkship schedule change, please contact Todd Peterson, MD, for the Birmingham campus; Lanita Carter, PhD, for the Huntsville campus; or Ramona Hicks, EdD, for the Montgomery campus. Special topics course offerings will be available in October and April and announced in a special topics lottery.

As a fourth year, you may change your schedule via the online drop/add link. Courses may be dropped or added up to 14 days from a start date. Courses dropped within 14 days of a start date will incur a late drop fee of $45 which must be paid at the time of the drop via the online link provided. There is no fee to add a course. The deadline to drop or add a course is 4 p.m. on the Wednesday before a Monday start date.

Students may wish to consult with their career advisor before selecting their courses. The list of career advisors can be found on the Residency Application Resources & Timeline page.
