The School of Medicine employs an electronic system given the trivial name “GradTrak” as a means of consolidating student records and the achievement of milestones in the progress to degree completion in a convenient and appropriately accessible format. Nomination and approvals of the permanent adviser and student advisory committee members are performed in this system as are the announcements of the scheduling of comprehensive and final program examinations and their outcomes. The system incorporates the continuing record of the student transcript and provides a repository for the archiving of documents associated with the matriculation of the individual as well as progress reports and other relevant documents. Access to the electronic student file is password-protected and restricted to faculty with program oversight or participation on the student advisory committee
