Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel yet?


January "to-do" list! Have you . . .

checkbox

Make sure that when your full legal name is called out at graduation, you and your family will be able to recognize it as your name. Don't take it for granted that we'll automatically get "John Edward Smith" right. Look for a email soon regarding the correct phonetic pronunciation of your name from Katherine Yates.

Are you getting married and want your married name called out? Or, have you had a recent legal name change? Let us know and we will make sure all your records are updated. You do not change anything, we take care of all of it for you!!! PLEASE BRING documentation to Alane Celli or Katherine Yates.

Any blocks to spring semester? Take care of these ASAP!

It's Time to Enter Your Rank Order Lists!

Students will enter rank order lists using the NRMP's ROLIC (Rank Order List Input and Confirmation) program, found on the NRMP web site.
ROLIC will be open from 12 noon on January 15th until 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on February 22nd.

You must have your log in ID and Password to access the program. Directions are on the web. Also coming soon, check your e-mail for a PowerPoint presentation put out by the NRMP giving a step-by-step walk through on entering your list. It will answer most every question you might have. You are encouraged to rank ALL programs with which you interviewed, unless you absolutely would not go there.


Please record your log in ID and Password and keep them with you at all times.

INSURANCE: As a heads up, we have learned from the AAMC that some programs do not offer medical insurance through their GME programs until 30 - 90 days after your PGY1 start date, which could adversely affect those folks with pre-existing conditions or who have family members with pre-existing conditions. If this is a concern for you, please contact the programs you are interested in ranking. ALL UVa students who have insurance through Aetna Student Health are covered through August.

AAMC Graduation Questionnaire


As the University of Virginia School of Medicine is an active member of the AAMC, filling out the AAMC Graduation Questionnaire is requested. It's your means to make your voice heard about everything from Orientation to Graduation, and all four years in between, and all anonymously. The questionnaire will be available in mid-February to students online at www.aamc.org/gq. The GQ Questionnaire is a routine final-year activity and it is part of your professional responsibility to complete this by Match Day. Reminders will follow via email.
