By typing my name below, I acknowledge that completion of this application does not guarantee clinical placement. I acknowledge that all clinical placement requests must come through the Medical Education department. I understand that an affiliation agreement needs to be in place between my school and Gundersen at least one month prior to starting the rotation for the rotation to take place.
