I understand that UH St. John Medical Center and our OPTI (Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine) assumes no liability for any medical costs incurred by me while I am participating in an elective at UH St. John Medical Center. I agree to notify UH St. John Medical Center at least 30 days in advance if I am unable to take this elective. I understand that confirmation of acceptance into any elective cannot be given until UH St. John Medical Center has notified me.

At this time we are unable to accept medical students outside of the United States.
