Oversight Committee


Flexible MD Oversight Committee

The Flexible MD Oversight Committee is made up of staff from both the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses and meets three times a year to review and approve new student proposals, make recommendations to applicants, and to review progress reports from participating students.

Any student wishing to participate in the Flexible MD program must submit a complete application proposal to the committee and receive approval prior to beginning their experience. The Committee meets in early March, June and October.
