Flexibility

You should plan to defend your thesis research prior to returning to medical school (JMC) in July with the third year cohort.  However, sometimes the nature of scientific research makes it difficult to complete your studies at a predetermined time based upon the academic calendar. If the ability to delay your return to JMC for a short period could have a significantly positive impact on the completion of your research project, resulting publications, and completion and defense of your thesis then it may be possible to request a delay in their return to JMC3, of up to three months, but no later than October to join up with the cohort of JMC3 students.  You should initiate discussions with the Program Directors as soon as the need for a delayed return becomes apparent.
