  • 2. The main form
    • Guidelines for Preparation of Elective Proposals
    • In order to facilitate the review of elective programs, the following standard format is being employed.
    • 1. Title - The title of the elective should be succinct and include not more than 60 letters. It should be as
    • specific as possible. For example, "Diagnosis and Management of Infertility" is more informative than
    • "Infertility."
    • 2. Department - The department offering the course must be designated. If the elective is a conjoint
    • effort of two departments, or with a non-medical college of the university, both should be listed. A
    • lead department should be designated.
  • 3.
    • 3. Director & Faculty - The director of the elective should be the individual who has the major
    • responsibility for organizing and running the program, and for evaluating students. All faculty involved
    • in presenting the program should be listed, along with academic rank and affiliation. When
    • appropriate, guest faculty should be included.
    • 4. Time & Location - Include under this heading the number of times a year the elective is offered, and
    • the duration. The location(s) must also be included, e.g., the School of Medicine on campus, a
    • particular hospital, or outside the Dayton area. Also include the lead time required to DROP/ADD the
    • elective.
  • 4.
    • (optional)
    • 5. Number of Students - The number of students which are accepted in the elective each month.
    • (optional)
    • 6. Prerequisites - Prerequisites for a elective may vary from none to a detailed knowledge of a specific area.
    • 7. Course Description - This should be a brief description, not to exceed two paragraphs.
  • 5.
    • 8. Content Categories - Specific behavioral objectives should be listed in terms of what the student will
    • be able to do at the end of the elective, including cognitive knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
    • 9. Learning Methods -The methods are an indication of the precise nature of the learning experiences
    • of the elective. For example, will the student attend lectures or seminars, watch demonstrations or
    • examinations, work in the laboratory or on the wards, or examine specimens or patients.
    • 10. Evaluation - There should be a delineation of the specific methods for evaluation of the student, such
    • as oral, written and observation, or any combination. Students will be graded Honors/Pass/Fail.
  • 6. Example
    • NAME OF STUDENT Jessica Hoying
    • 1. TITLE Medical Research
    • 2. DEPARTMENT Division of Immunobiology

    • Center, Research Building, Cincinnati, Ohio.
    • Minimum contact hours per week will be 35
  • 7.
    • I skipped #’s 5 and 6
    • Instead I entered a rationale section about why I wanted to do research as an elective, and how it would contribute to my medical career
  • 8.
    • The student will be introduced to the conduct of medical research and procedures through close observation and participation in laboratory procedures.
    • Morning Activities:
    • Meeting with preceptor and other laboratory members to plan the day’s experiments
    • Weekly lab meeting
    • Conduct laboratory experiments
    • Afternoon Activities:
    • Attend seminars
    • Continue laboratory experiments
    • Analysis of data
    • Evening Activities;
      • Completing reading assignments
      • Review of information gained during the daytime activities
  • 9.
    • The purpose of the SIE is to acquaint the student with approaches used in exploring medical research questions and for the student to learn the theoretical basis and practical application of specific modern laboratory techniques. Specifically, the student will gain experience with:
    • Basic laboratory safety procedures
    • Basic experimental study design
    • Participating in a research project dealing with immunological responses in skin epithelial tissue. Understanding the theoretical basis of and performing standard molecular biological and immunological laboratory assays including: RNA/DNA isolation, RT-PCR, Western blotting, ELISAs,
    • Statistical analysis of data collected
    • Interpretation of laboratory results
