Medical students may accept employment in medically related areas and in such endeavors as clinical and research experience provided:

  1. No academic credit will be awarded for experience for which payment is received.
  2. The salary does not exceed that approved by the campus for a full-time graduate student.
  3. The student does not hold a faculty appointment within the University.

This policy does not apply to monies received from awards, fellowships and scholarships sponsored by outside agencies. They are considered rewards for excellence and/or achievement as opposed to wages for services rendered.
