Clinical Agreements for Healthcare Colleges include several types of agreements: Affiliation Agreements, Clinical Exchange Agreements, Educational Site Agreements, and Graduate Medical Education Program Letter of Agreements.
The following describes the process for developing a new Clinical Agreement:
The Office of Clinical Contracting will review the preliminary approval form, and, if it approves, will forward it to the Assistant Provost for Global Health Initiatives, who will submit the form to the Assistant Provost for International Partnerships for the Provost’s review and approval. The Provost has assigned responsibility for this review to the Associate Provost for International Programs. The Associate Provost’s review will be completed in one week.
If the program is under the supervision of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) office, additional review and approval of the program is required by the appropriate official.
Once approved by the Associate Provost for International Programs, the form will be returned to the Office of Clinical Contracting, which will notify the faculty sponsor of approval to begin negotiations.
A non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) is not required to enter into an Affiliation Agreement, Clinical Exchange Agreement, Educational Site Agreement, or Graduate Medical Education Program Letter of Agreement. However, an MOU may be executed if circumstances warrant.
