Hello Class of 2020,

It's that time of year when we need to begin thinking about third year
winter elective and fourth year rotation scheduling. I have attached two
documents:

   1. Third Year Elective Overview (also posted to the DVM Student Hub
   under 3rd Year Electives; course descriptions can be found in the
   Preclinical Academic Handbook also on the Hub)
   2. Clinical Rotation Block Dates (also posted on Hub under 4th Year
   Rotations)

Please review these two items over the next couple of weeks and take a look
at the Fourth Year Rotation Handbook on the Hub to get an idea of your core
and elective rotation options for next year. Here is a summary of how
things will unfold over the next several months:

   - *October 26 at 12:30 pm in Lecture C (booked in your calendars)*
      - Meeting to discuss 2 topics:
         - Review process for scheduling of third year winter semester
         electives, including the large animal limited-enrollment live animal
         laboratories
         - Review process for "pre-selecting" a block when you wish NOT to
         have an internal fourth year rotation scheduled (remember
that block dates
         for 2019-2020 are posted to the DVM Student Hub)


   - *November 5 at 3:30 pm in Lecture A (booked in your calendars)*
      - Lottery to allocate seats in the 6 large animal limited-enrollment
      live animal elective laboratories as per the process outlined in the
      overview document
         - Only students who wish to get a seat in one or more of these
         labs need to attend this session
         - Once these seats are allocated in this lottery, all
         registrations are considered FINAL
         - It is not possible to drop or add any of the live animal
         limited-enrollment labs after this session
         - After this date, the window will open and students self-register
         for their third year elective lecture courses (unlimited enrollment)
         through MyUPEI
      - Students are emailed and given the opportunity to enter their "3
      week pre-selected block" selection (if they wish) into E*Value
   - *Late-November *
      - Students receive their fourth year core rotation schedules in
      E*Value and may request add/drops/swaps using the schedule change request
      feature in E*Value
   - *Late-December*
      - Students are able to view elective rotation availability in E*Value
      and are encouraged to review availability over the holiday break
   - *Early January*
      - Elective rotation coordinators participate in information for
      students to give overviews of their rotations and assist students in
      deciding on their elective preferences
      - Students enter their elective preferences in E*Value and schedule
      optimization occurs
   - *Mid-February*
   - Students receive their rotation schedules in E*Value and may request
      add/drops/swaps using the schedule change request feature in E*Value
   - *Late February*
      - Students wishing to submit any external rotation approvals for the
      2019-2020 academic year MUST attend a mandatory Risk Management
Session and
      sign a Waiver of Liability Form
      - Students will be given access to the External Rotation Approval
      Form and the ASA Office will begin accepting submissions
   - *March and April*
      - Students attend a series of Clinical Rotation Orientation Sessions
      (some of which are mandatory) spread out over March and early April
   - *April 29*
      - First day of Block A!



Thanks and looking forward to working with you all this semester!
