Students in the UAB MSTP have made a full-time commitment to the program.  Under normal circumstances, therefore, they are not permitted to have outside jobs.  

Certain exceptions may be granted under the following circumstances: 

  • Tutoring: Students are allowed 10 hours/week of scheduled paid-tutoring (see Forms)
  • ICM trainer for standardized patients
  • Teaching MCAT or GRE prep courses

In all cases, students must fill out the UAB MSTP Extracurricular Activities Form.  All extracurricular activities will be reviewed at the end of the academic year. The MSTP Co-Directors can request at any time that a student refrain from continuing in extracurricular activities if it is deemed a hindrance to the student’s ability to meet the standards of the MSTP.
