Rotation Requests

  1. All rotations must be requested through the Student Coordinator using the BAMC Rotation Request and sending by email to usarmy.jbsa.medcom-bamc.mbx.saushec-clerkship@mail.mil. Do not contact the departments directly, as this may result in over-scheduling causing unexpected cancellations. SAUSHEC Rotation Request (PDF)
  2. Requests are processed in the order received. If your request is received prior to the first day of acceptance, based on the above chart, it will not be processed.
  3. ADT rotations take priority over non-ADT rotations. Non-ADT rotations are not approved during the months of July-October.
  4. During the months of July-October, Medical Students intending to interview will take priority over all other rotations.
  5. Medical Students will receive a confirmation letter via email once rotation is scheduled. Read confirmation letter carefully and immediately begin submitting requested information. If requested information is not received within two months of start date your rotation will be automatically cancelled.
  6. HPSP Medical Students requesting a non-ADT rotation must have a Memorandum of Affiliation (MOA) in place between BAMC and the student’s medical school (takes from two to six months). Student Coordinator will provide contact information when request is received.
  7. Civilians, with no military affiliation, must initiate a National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI) through the BAMC Security Office as soon as possible, but no later than one month prior to rotation start date. Contact Student Coordinator for detailed instructions.
  8. Rotations at BAMC are very competitive! Rotation requests should be submitted on the earliest allowable date. When Medical Student limit is reached per specialty, Student Coordinator will work with Medical Students to secure an alternate date, sub-specialty rotation, or rotation in alternate specialty to ensure Medical Student is on-site for face-to-face interview.

Notice:

Beginning 1 January 2014, BAMC will accept rotation requests when students are within nine (9) months of their intended rotation month.
