1. What about cancellations?

Accepting an elective is a commitment and a reflection of your professionalism. While there may occasionally be circumstances out of your control, we strongly discourage cancellations. Although there are no penalties for cancellations, last minute cancellations result in a missed opportunity for a fellow medical student.

2. What should I do if I cannot attend my scheduled elective?

You must notify the Medical Student Coordinator immediately at medstudent@mskcc.org. We will require a written letter from your school confirming your cancellation.

3. Will my application be kept after my cancellation?

No. Applications are not kept after a student notifies us of his/her cancellation. If you are interested in another elective at Memorial Hospital, you may submit a new application with a new application fee after 6 months have passed from the date of your cancellation.
