Disclaimers:

Applicant and Program Representative, please review.

  1. CentraCare has elected to focus on those programs with a campus component or hybrid format (online plus on campus) and will not be partnering with solely online programs or providing rotations to students who enroll in exclusively online programs.
  2. Rotation requests from APP applicants who are not currently employed by CentraCare will be considered starting 3 months prior to the requested start date.
  3. If an APP student is not a current or previous CentraCare employee, does not have a connection to Minnesota, is in a non-Minnesota program or is not interested in future employment at CentraCare — a rotation is unlikely due to the high volume of requests.
  4. All application materials must be received to MedStudents@centracare.com at least 6 weeks prior to the student’s rotation start date.
  5. Submission of required application and documentation material does not mean a rotation has been approved.
  6. A CentraCare student facilitator will notify the program representative if the requested rotation has been approved or if unable to accommodate a rotation experience.
  7. Applications with missing documentation will not be considered.
  8. Please allow up to three weeks to receive a response pertaining to rotation availability.
  9. If a requested rotation is no longer needed, the CentraCare student facilitator must be immediately notified.
  10. Once a preceptor/schedule has been determined, no adjustments can be made. Students must be willing to work around the preceptor’s schedule and travel to at any of the CentraCare service area locations. The student is responsible for reliable transportation.
