Financial Aid-
Remember to budget for residency interviews and airfares

1. an email was sent out regarding alums hosting MSIVs during interview season. We discussed the need for housing for away rotations as well, and the office of alumni relations will check for availability for those if you let them know that's what you're looking for.
2. The Alumni Relations Office offers the HOST (Help Our Students Travel) Program for current MSIV's who are interviewing for residencies around the country.  We ask CU School of Medicine alumni to host MSIV's in their home for overnight stays during their interviews.  If you are interested in staying with an alum during any of your interviews, please fill out the application and return it to me at
3. the MAA will be hosting a luncheon for the class of 2013 in the spring
4. 2 scholarships from the MAA will be offered to 4th-year medical students for the first time this year... applications are through the generic scholarship application
5. Dr. Bill Maniatis will succeed Dr. Gary Grasmick as the MAA Board president

CSC updates:
1. Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship proposal has been revised to offer an extended Rural Community Care/Hospitalized Adult Care/Adult Ambulatory Care rotation and budget.
2. The grading policy for Phases I and II will change effective August 2012.  The differences are:1) eliminate the use of an “I”/incomplete grade; 2)students failing a block will be allowed one round of remediation rather than two; and 3) the final end of the block grade will reflect “PR” (passed with remediation) or “F” (fail).
