Online Availability & Request System (OARS)

The Online Availability & Request System (OARS) is a tool students can use to edit their fourth year clinical schedule. OARS allows students to view elective availability, as well as submit a request to add and drop electives.

Please note that any requested schedule changes submitted through OARS is not complete until the School has approved the change. You will receive an email informing you whether your schedule change was approved or denied.

The system features:

  • Current elective availability, even as visiting students take elective slots;
  • Function for sorting and filtering elective availability by department, by tier, by duration (2- or 4- weeks), by start date, and by open or closed status;
  • Summary view of all requests before they are submitted.
