Welcome to campus

Visit Case Western Reserve University's uniquely urban campus, located in the heart of Cleveland's cultural hub, University Circle. Plan your trip:


Unlisted electives are generally clinical electives not listed in the on-line course catalog and can take place anywhere away in the domestic U.S and includes unlisted electives at CWRU affiliated hospitals. Awhile an unlisted elective can also be considered an away rotation, senior students should not use the Unlisted Elective Form to register for rotations outside of the domestic U.S. See scheduling information for more details about how to register for international rotations.

Instructions for scheduling UNLISTED ELECTIVES

  1. Students can also pre-arrange a clinical elective at an affiliated hospital or away location that is not listed in the Course Catalog. Electives not listed in the Course Catalog cannot be submitted through the Electives Request Site. Instead, after an unlisted elective (UNEL) has been confirmed by the host institution students must submit a completed Unlisted Elective Form with supporting documents to your Society Dean for review and signature. The completed form should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the proposed start date. CCLCM students will use the internal College portal to submit the “Unlisted Elective Form”.
  2. When submitting the Unlisted Elective Request Form be sure to sign it and attach the required supporting documents before submitting to your Society Dean. Your Society Dean will review and sign the Form then forward everything in one packet to the SOM Registrar for enrollment in SIS. Please do not email documents separately, submit one complete request with the full course description (directly from host institution) and written confirmation from the host sponsor for the scheduled period. CCLCM students will use the internal College portal to submit the “Unlisted Electives Form”.

    Some host facilities may inform students that an affiliation agreement is required. In such instance, please contact for assistance and allow at least 3 months for legal review and approval.
  3. Students must use the Clinical Assessment System (CAS) throughout all clinical rotations. See Using the Clinical Assessment System for full instructions. The rotation will be available to add into CAS 24-hours after you are enrolled through the SOM Registrar. Students must manually add the Unlisted Elective rotation in CAS, it will not automatically appear. In cases where a host institution requires the use of their own End Of Rotation Assessment Form, the completed form must be forwarded to the SOM Registrar to add the final grade.

IMPORTANT: Students must notify Kim Hatch ( when any Unlisted Elective has been confirmed at MetroHealth Medical Center. Students must notify Andrea Beyer ( when any Unlisted Elective has been confirmed at the Cleveland Clinic. This must be done at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the rotation and regardless if you have rotated at either location previously.
