Medical Student Rotation Information

  • The Department of Aviation proudly offers clinical clerkships for medical students enrolled in the Health Professionals Scholarship Program (HPSP) or USUHS program.
  • Rotation duration is flexible and can be coordinated through the GME coordinator and Program Directors.
  • The program requests two months’ notice prior to the start of clinical duties to ensure adequate planning of a quality educational experience and that all administrative processes are completed before arrival to our site.
  • Medical students may request funded rotations (active-duty orders) or unfunded rotations (at the expense of the member). Rotation requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to rotation availability.

Directions to the Medical Student Office

Students will park in the Lyster Army Health Clinic front parking lot. Enter the building through the automatic double doors and follow that hallway towards the rear of the building. When that hallway ends, take a right toward the LAHC Command Suite. Make a left before the Command Suite hallway begins (snack bar area) and proceed to the back of the building. You will come across a large sign for DAM. Once you pass that sign, make your next immediate right and enter the hallway door that is marked (SAAM Conference Room). The first office on your right will be that of the GME Coordinator.
