Yes. The College of Medicine requires that the Executive Committee of the College review all appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor and above prior to giving final approval to the hire. Following that, approval is needed by the Office of the Provost and by the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity. This process can take from seven to eleven working days.
If an International Scholar has graduated from a foreign medical school, the Office of International Students and Scholars will require the department to submit the DS-2019 form to Dr. Lois Geist for the purpose of determining the nature of the patient care duties of the scholar. If the duties are within the scope of the University's J-1 program (see the five limitations listed on the form), federal regulations require a letter from the Dean or his designee, Lois Geist, certifying that the individual and his/her sponsor will follow those limitations of care. If the scholar will have more than incidental patient contact, then the Office of International Students and Scholars will assist in pursuing J-1 status through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
Activities that go beyond incidental patient contact include: making a diagnosis and entering it in a patient chart, prescribing treatment or medication administered by the physician or other health care professionals, or performing surgery. Activities that may be acceptable include: performing a diagnostic exam in the presence of a senior physician who repeats the exam or ensures at every step that it is done correctly and the proper diagnostic information is obtained; being present during therapies and treatment with opportunities for hands-on experience in ways that do not compromise the care of the patient; being present in the operating room and having direct patient contact, but not performing procedures.
Yes. In addition to the DS-2019 form, please send a copy of the scholar's curriculum vita and any correspondence between the sponsor and the scholar that outlines expectations and duties while the scholar is at the Carver College of Medicine.
