Greeting from the Student Coordinator

Welcome to Student Affairs! The Student Affairs office provides support to all students and those who job shadow that want to complete clinical rotations as well as clinical shadowing experiences throughout the Guthrie System. My personal experience of working with both Undergraduate Medical Education and Graduate Medical Education, lends itself to helping students have a smooth onboarding experience so that they can get the most out of their experiences at Guthrie, regardless of the student’s field of study.

Ready to request a clinical rotation?

Students wishing to rotate at Guthrie should place their requests here:

Visiting Student Request Form

Requests must be submitted no less than 60 days in advance. 

Check with your school to see if they are going to place the request on your behalf prior to submitting your request. Clinical Rotation requests will be reviewed by our team to ensure that an affiliation with your school exists (and if one is needed for the type of rotation you are requesting). Once that has been verified, the student coordinator will send you information about onboarding. Once your onboarding is completed you will be sent an email to let you know you have been cleared to start your rotation as scheduled.
