Page 54 - Fourth-Year Course Requirements - First sentence should read as follows "Fourth-year students who do not satisfy the Clinical Skills Continuity requirement, must successfully complete a four-week, 4 credit course from the approved list of Clinical Skills Continuity electives."

Electives Book - The Elective Curriculum section.  Acute care requirement must be satisfied at Duke SoM and cannot be satisfied away from Duke. The sentence that says "In addition, all students must take a four-week critical care elective at Duke or a Study Away institution" is listed in error.  The sentence should say "In additional, all students must take an approved four-week, four-credit course that is approved to satisfy the acute care course requirement at Duke.  The course should be taken simultaneously with the Acute Care Curriculum course (INTERDIS 401C), unless the student is in the PCLT track or approval has been received from the acute care curriculum course director to do otherwise."

Course Audit: Courses in the Doctor of Medicine program at the School of Medicine may be audited, with approval and consent of the course director, only by students currently enrolled in the MD program. Students who audit a course do not receive credit for the course. Only those classes offered in a lecture format may be audited with the written permission of the instructor. After the first week of classes in any term, no course taken as an audit can be changed to a credited course and no credited course can be changed to an audit. Further, an audited course may not be repeated for credit.

Course Enrollment for non-School of Medicine Programs: Students enrolled at Duke University in academic programs outside of the School of Medicine, are not permitted to enroll or audit any course offered through the School of Medicine. This includes courses in the Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Master in Biomedical Sciences, Masters in Biostatistics Programs, Master in Clinical Informatics, Master of Health Science-Physician Assistant, Pathologist Assistant, Clinical Leadership, and Clinical Research.
