Welcome to Rush! The mission of Rush University Medical Center is to provide
the very best care for our patients and we believe that is most effectively done
in an academic atmosphere. We teach and emphasize evidence-based treatments
and our clinical decisions are based on the best science available. Our research
programs are meant to strengthen the ties between laboratory science and the
bedside. Our community service programs are aimed at addressing disparities
in access to health care. Finally, our educational programs have as a goal the
teaching of the science and art of medicine in the context of health care today.

School is not easy, but you will definitely be able to handle it. Many students
need assistance or support at one time or another in their training—please
don’t hesitate to ask. You should also help and support each other. Learning
in a supportive environment is ideal, and I know you will find that to be the
case at Rush.

All of us at Rush are honored that you have chosen to come here and look forward to meeting you, teaching
you, and working with you to improve the health of everyone.

Sincerely,




Larry J. Goodman, M.D.
President, Rush University




                                                                                                       5

Health care is constantly evolving and changing, and as a student at Rush, you
will be learning, working and serving along-side practitioner-teacher faculty who
are world-renowned in their area of expertise and who care about your growth and
success as a student and as a member of the health care professional team. I invite
you to take every opportunity to learn from them, not only theory, but practice. In
particular, they will role model our Rush ICARE values of innovation, collaboration,
accountability, respect, and excellence in their everyday interactions with you and
with patients, families, faculty, staff, and other students.

Please take advantage of the resources that are now yours as a member of the Rush
family. You are part of a top-ranked academic medical center and health science-
only university, a thriving center for translational research and an organization that
invests in our community, both locally and globally, and always puts the patient first.

You are also now a part of a dynamic, close-knit community where you will form lifelong friendships, develop
leadership skills, and expand on your academic foundation through co-curricular experiences. Your involvement
provides an opportunity to develop personally and professionally, while linking your core academic skills with
out-of-the-classroom experiences. These opportunities, paired with the Rush academic experience, creates a
unique and thriving learning community. I urge you to become involved in one or more of the student organiza-
tions and community service opportunities available to you here at Rush University. As an alumnus of Rush
University myself, many of the personal and professional relationships that I hold dear today were formed when
I was a student at Rush.

I look forward to meeting you in class, in the hallway or elevator, at one of the monthly University Tea events
or during a quarterly “Conversation with the Provost.”




Thomas A. Deutsch, MD
Provost, Rush University

                                 hisToRy of Rush univeRsiTy
Rush University, traces its roots to 1837, when Rush Medical College received its charter from the state of
Illinois two days before the City of Chicago received its charter. Today, Rush reflects more than 160 years of
excellence in patient care, education, research, and service to the community. The Medical Center was established
in October 1969, when Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Hospital merged with Rush Medical College. Rush University
was established in 1972 with the creation of the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. In 1975, Rush
University established a new College of Health Sciences, and in 1981, the Graduate College was established.

Rush University now includes Rush Medical College, the College of Nursing, the College of Health Sciences
and the Graduate College. Rush Medical College was the first degree-granting medical school in Illinois, and it
graduated 10,976 physicians before suspending operations in 1942. Beginning in the fall of 1971, Rush Medical
College reopened as new students began their basic science education and clinical training. Rush Medical College
grants the Doctor of Medicine degree.

In 1885, the first antecedent of the College of Nursing, the St. Luke’s Hospital Training School for Nurses,
opened its doors to offer diploma education in nursing. In 1903, the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing
accepted its first students. From 1956 until 1968, nurses studied at the merged Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Hospital
School of Nursing. A total of 7,221 nurses graduated from these three schools.

The College of Health Sciences has eleven departments: Clinical Nutrition, Clinical Sciences (Perfusion Technol-
ogy and Physician Assistant Studies), Communication Disorders and Sciences, Health Systems Management,
Imaging Sciences, Medical Laboratory Science, Medical Physics, Occupational Therapy, Religion Health and
Human Values, Respiratory Care and Vascular Ultrasound. Master’s degrees are offered in Clinical Nutrition,
Health Care Ethics, Health Systems Management, Medical Laboratory Management, Medical Laboratory Science,
Medical Physics, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Respiratory Care, and Speech-Language
Pathology. Baccalaureate degrees are offered in Imaging Sciences, Medical Laboratory Science, Perfusion
Technology, Respiratory Care, and Vascular Ultrasound. A doctoral degree in Audiology is offered. Certificate
programs in Health Care Ethics and Specialist in Blood Bank are also offered.

The Graduate College offers Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Immu-
nology/Microbiology, Medical Physics, Neurosciences, Nursing, Pharmacology, and Molecular Biophysics and
Physiology. The Graduate College also offers Master of Science degrees in Biotechnology, Clinical Research,
and in many of the basic sciences. The College of Nursing offers the following degrees: the Master of Science
in Nursing, the Doctor of Nursing Practice, and the Doctor of Philosophy (through the Graduate College). A
post-master’s certificate program is also available.

I pledge that my academic, research, and/or clinical work will be of the highest integrity. I shall neither give
nor receive unauthorized aid; I shall not represent the work of others as my own; I shall not engage in scientific
misconduct; and I shall treat all persons with the greatest respect and dignity, just as the ethical codes of Rush
University Medical Center and my future profession demand.
I recognize that behaviors that impede learning or undermine academic, research, and clinical evaluation,
including but not limited to falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism, are inconsistent with Rush University
values and must be reported.
iMPleMenTaTion of The honoR Code
This Honor Code (hereafter referred to as the Code) sets the standards for expected professional behavior within
the University and the Medical Center. Commitment to this Code is a shared responsibility of all faculty, staff,
and students within the Rush University community to ensure the highest standards of behavior, whether in the
classroom, the laboratory, or in the clinical setting, and to ensure that education obtained at Rush provides a
sound foundation for each student’s future success as an academic, scientific, or healthcare professional.
Code enfoRCeMenT
Any violations of this Code or suspicion of student or academic misconduct should be reported to the student’s
college for further review in accordance with the procedures specified by that college. Each college will be
expected to set standards for addressing Honor Code violations and cases of misconduct in a fair and consistent
manner that best fits their respective student population. Students refusing to sign must submit a letter to their
dean’s office explaining why, and adherence to the Code is required for matriculation, whether or not the docu-
ment has been signed. The Code may also be enforced for off-campus actions when the student is representing
themself as a member of the University.

Rush University requires all students to be covered by a health plan to promote health and well-being while
protecting the individual from undue financial hardship that a medical emergency could cause. Students enrolled
in degree programs are eligible for the Collegiate Risk Management, Inc. Student Plan underwritten by American
Fidelity Assurance Company. Medical Students are required to enroll in the university health plan.
Non-medical students enrolled in non-university health plans must provide proof of their enrollment prior to
their first academic term and again every subsequent fall term. Students are required to notify the Office of
Financial Affairs if their non-university coverage is ending to avoid a lapse in coverage.
Please contact the Office of Financial Affairs for pricing information. Pricing information and plan information
is available on the Financial Affairs webpage.

The mission of the Office of Academic Affairs is to promote the implementation of the University’s strategic
plan by developing and supporting programs that foster excellence in patient care via academic and personal
development of all students and faculty. The vision of this office is that Rush University will be recognized for
creating and promoting a nurturing multicultural environment, in which faculty and students from all backgrounds
embody and respect the attributes, values, and diverse perspectives which reflect the communities that we serve.
Further, it will be a University in which students and faculty members have a strong sense of value, and their
aspirations to serve the local and global health care needs will be fulfilled.
The office is responsible for the following areas:
•	 Faculty	development	and	excellence
•	 Multicultural	competence	through	education,	research	and	clinical	integration
•	 Global	health	involvement	

                                                                   advising
Each student in the College of Health Sciences is assigned an academic advisor. Advisors must be active CHS
faculty members and are expected to meet regularly with their students to review academic progress and student
concerns. For specific information pertaining to academic advising, students should refer to their program
handbook or contact their program director. In the College of Nursing, students are assigned an academic
advisor. The advisor is an important resource regarding ongoing matriculation or if academic difficulties arise.
The Rush Medical College Academic Advisor Program appoints faculty advisors each year. For the Graduate
College, the directors of the programs coordinate the academic advising programs.

The Careers in Medicine program, a career planning program designed to facilitate the career exploration and
specialty selection process, coordinates student-organized interest groups. Each interest group, organized around
a particular specialty, works through the Careers in Medicine committee to provide programming and educational
opportunities about their specialty. Questions about the formation of new interest groups or pertaining to the
interest groups listed below can be directed to Rush Medical College at 942-6915 or to RushCiM@gmail.com.
Anesthesiology Interest Group (AIG)
The Anesthesiology Interest Group (AIG) was created for medical students to further explore the exciting field
of anesthesiology. Students have ample opportunities to collaborate with attending and resident anesthesiologists
here at Rush through lectures, workshops, and shadowing activities facilitated by the AIG.
Cardiothoracic Surgery Interest Group (CTSIG)
The Cardiothoracic Surgery Interest Group is dedicated to getting students thinking and excited about the field
of Cardiothoracic surgery. With a newly implemented direct residency training program, the field is evolving
and this group is a reflection of that. Through lectures from surgeons, hands on wet labs and workshops, and
unique shadowing opportunities, this group gives students invaluable exposure to and experiences in the dynamic
field of Cardiothoracic Surgery.
Emergency Medicine Interest Group (EMIG)
The Emergency Medicine Interest Group (EMIG) serves to introduce students to the field of Emergency Medi-
cine, one of the fastest growing specialties in the United States. Our main focus is to present various aspects of
Emergency Medicine so that students may learn both the requirements of an EM residency and career and the
lifestyle of an EM physician. Through a number of programs, including clinical workshops, lunch lectures, and
shadowing, we help students develop useful skills, expand current knowledge bases, and interact with profes-
sionals currently practicing in the specialty. EMIG encourages participation on a national level, particularly
in the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM), the American College of Emergency Physicians
(ACEP) and the Emergency Medicine Residency Association (EMRA).
Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG)
The Rush Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) promotes medical student interest in the specialty of Family
Practice and acquaints students with the diversity of practice options available in primary care. The Rush FMIG
also connects students to local and state meetings as well as national conferences in family medicine. Several
educational events are sponsored each year, including speaker presentations, panel discussions and hands-on
procedure workshops. Information is also provided on summer externships, local residencies and the residency
application process. The FMIG acts as a liaison between its members and the Rush Department of Family
Medicine, the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians (IAFP) and the American Academy of Family Physicians
(AAFP). Membership in the AAFP is sponsored by the IAFP and includes a subscription to the American Family
Physician Journal.

South Asian Students Association (SASA)
Rush University South Asian Students Association (SASA) seeks to promote health and cultural events for
South Asian communities and individuals, as well as other communities of color, through community events
and health education. The cultural nuances of South Asians necessitate elevating awareness of and addressing
unmet health needs specific to this community. Despite the diversity of language, traditions, customs, values,
religion, and other components of South Asian culture, there is a strong sense of unity, which is apparent in the
common identity that South Asian Americans share. It is vital that healthcare providers and the community be
made aware of these paradoxical differences. SASA is founded on the belief that a substantial, tangible benefit
is to be gained in educating and learning about the South Asian culture and is especially to healthcare providers.
The salient goal of SASA is to raise awareness and educate healthcare providers at Rush and in the community at
large about South Asian culture and all that is associated with it. This includes the unique ideologies, including
cultural, philosophical, scientific, and spiritual concepts, of South Asian origin that allow for unique human
experiences, even when it comes to healthcare. These goals stand behind projects of mentorship, conferences,
lectures, heath fairs, workshops, trips in addition to other projects under consideration.

Rush students are required to wear their student ID card in an easily visible and professional location while on
campus. Students not wearing a valid student ID card could be asked to leave the University or Medical Center
and related clinical sites. A valid student ID card is needed to use the library, laboratories, bookstore, student
lounge, and is required for admission to some university events.
If the student ID card is lost, please inform the Registrar as soon as possible to receive a replacement. There is
a	$10	fee	for	a	replacement	card.	The	Registrar’s	Office	will	no	longer	accept	cash	or	checks	for	replacement	of	
student ID cards. Payments can be made via http://www.rushu.rush.edu/regpay. If, however, the ID card was
damaged or stolen there will be no replacement fee if either the damaged ID card or a copy of the police report
is received by the Office of the Registrar. A student who forgets his or her ID card can come to the Office of
the Registrar for a one-day ID card.
The identification card is only valid while the student is enrolled and is immediately deactivated when a student
withdraws, is dismissed, or graduates from Rush University. Any alteration of the student identification card is
grounds for dismissal from Rush University. The card is the property of Rush University and students are required
to return the card to the Office of the Registrar at the time they graduate, withdraw or otherwise permanently
leave the University.

Privacy and Confidentiality of Student Records and FERPA
Rush University takes seriously its commitment to protect the privacy of our students and their education records.
In addition to upholding the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), Rush University
has taken further steps to protect a person’s privacy by extending similar benefits afforded to enrolled students
under FERPA to individuals who are applying for admission. In addition, Rush has extended the period of time
under which deceased students’ education records can be released. The Office of the Registrar is the compliance
office for FERPA for Rush University. Additional information is available in the Rush University Catalog or by
calling the Office of the Registrar at 312-942-5681.
Family Educational and Rights Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
FERPA is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of students’ education records. Education records include
any information or documentation that is recorded in any way, including records produced by handwriting,
computer, e-mail, audio, and video, among others. Educational records contain information directly related to
a student, and are maintained by Rush University or any party acting on its behalf.
FERPA protects the privacy of students’ education records by setting forth strict instructions and limitations
governing the release of information about students. Although FERPA contains exceptions for the release of
“directory information” without a student’s prior written consent, students have the right to request that even
such directory information be withheld from disclosure to third parties.
Given the restrictions of FERPA, faculty and staff should assume that all students must provide written consent
that follows the format specified in FERPA before any education records may be released to anyone other than
the student. Information cannot be released to any third party, including the students’ parents, relatives, and
friends. Particularly sensitive information includes students’ social security numbers, race or ethnicity, gender,
nationality, academic performance, disciplinary records, and grades.
Annual Notification of Student Rights under FERPA
FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:
1. The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the University
    receives a request for access.
    A student should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official,
    a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The University official will make
    arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.
    If the records are not maintained by the University official to whom the request was submitted, that official
    shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate,
    misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.
    A student who wishes to ask the University to amend a record should write the University official responsible
    for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should
    be changed. If the University decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University
    will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for
    amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when
    notified of the right to a hearing.
3. The right to provide written consent before the University discloses personally identifiable information from
    the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
    The University discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA
    exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person
    employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position
    (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University
    has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using University employees or officials (such as
    an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on
    an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official
    in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to
    review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the University.

4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Rush
     University to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
     The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

Directory Information
Certain information classified by Rush University as “directory information” may be disclosed to the public
without obtaining the student’s permission. The items classified as directory information include:
     student’s full name
     local and permanent addresses
     local and permanent phone numbers
     pager number
     Rush e-mail address
     date and place of birth
     photograph or other electronic images*
     major and minor field(s) of study including the college, division, department or program in which the student

     dates of attendance and graduation, and degrees received
     honors and awards received
     previous colleges/universities attended
     degrees earned at previous colleges/universities
* Rush University records both visually and audibly many campus events and daily activities such as classes,
     commencement, convocations, student events, and other public occasions. These images, as well as other
     information about students, are published (e.g. print media; Rush Web site) regularly as part of the University’s
     coverage of campus life and portrayal of the University to a variety of audiences. The University’s policy
     is to restrict the use of any photograph/electronic image to the representation, marketing, or promotion of
     Rush activities only.
Students may restrict the release of any item of information considered directory information by completing
and submitting the Directory Information Restrictions form available in the Office of the Registrar (or online
at: http://www.rushu.rush.edu/registrar/forms.html). The decision to restrict directory information will apply to
all requests for directory information from within and outside the University community, including prospective
employers. These restrictions will remain in effect until the student informs the Office of the Registrar in writing
to remove the restrictions.

                                          finanCial aPPeals
If a student has a concern about his or her financial account and he or she wishes to appeal the financial decision,
the student must file a written appeal with the Office of Financial Affairs within two terms from the term in
question for the appeal to be considered. The Office of Financial Affairs will investigate the situation and will
consult with other offices including the Office of the Registrar, the Office of Student Financial Aid, and the
student’s program, as needed. A decision will be rendered within 30 days from the time the appeal was received,
and the student will be notified in writing. Students may file a written appeal with the Office of the Associate
Provost, Student Affairs 30 days from when written decision notice was sent. The decision of the Associate
Provost, Student Affairs is final.

                                           leave of absenCe
After matriculation to Rush University a student may not arbitrarily cease registration without notice. All
students are required to maintain continuous enrollment or risk administrative withdrawal after one quarter due
to unexplained non-registration.
A leave of absence (LOA) is defined as a temporary suspension of studies for which an approved time limit has
been set and a specific date of return established. Leaves of absence are approved and granted at the discretion
of the student’s college. The procedure for petitioning for a leave of absence requires the student to complete
the Petition for Leave of Absence form and obtain all appropriate signatures. The completion of the Petition
for Leave of Absence makes the student eligible for a leave that is granted by the college. It is the student’s
responsibility to communicate directly with his or her college regarding the disposition of the request for the
leave. Typically, a petition for a leave of absence will only be accepted through the first week of the quarter
for which the leave is desired. The clearance procedure assures that students do not obligate themselves for
additional tuition, financial aid, and insurance. Insurance may be continued under certain conditions. Failure to
complete the Petition for Leave of Absence form will make the student ineligible for any refunds and obligate
him or her for the full quarter’s insurance charges. The date that the leave of absence form is submitted to the
Office of the Registrar is the date that will be used in processing the form unless otherwise noted in writing by
the program director.
Students may obtain the Petition for Leave of Absence form from the Office of the Registrar or online at:
www.rushu.rush.edu/registrar/forms.html. Additional information regarding the leave of absence process is
available at www.rushu.rush.edu/catalog/acadresources/loa.html.

                                   MediCal CenTeR PRoPeRTy
It is a policy of Rush University Medical Center that supplies are not for personal use regardless of how minor
the item or insignificant the value. If a student receives permission from a course director or instructor to
remove any item from the premises, the student must secure a written pass from that person to accompany the
item when taking it from Rush University Medical Center. Occasionally, a Security Officer may ask to inspect
a briefcase, bag, etc. in an effort to control the loss of Rush University Medical Center property. I.D. cards may
also be checked at this time.

                                       PRivaCy and seCuRiTy
There are several federal and state regulations that establish requirements for the protection of privacy and security
of patient information. Many of our privacy and security requirements originate from the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical
Health Act (HITECH). These laws have established the framework for “covered entities”, such as RUMC, that
governs the processing, storage, use, and release of the “protected health information” of our patients.
There are expectations made for all of us in terms of the patient information that we encounter. Some of these
expectations include that you:
    Use or disclose PHI only for its intended purposes and limit to what is “minimum necessary”
    Provide notice of any known or suspected breaches of information;
    Exercise reasonable caution to protect PHI under your control;
    Understand and follow RUMC Privacy and Security policies;
    Try to remedy any Privacy or Security problems; discuss the issue with your Supervisor/Manager; report
    issues to the Privacy and Security Office at 312-942-4416.

Article IV
Privileges and Responsibilities of the Faculty and Students
Section 1. Privileges and Responsibilities

    themselves and not the University in whole or in part, unless that opinion has been authorized by the President
    or the Provost.

outlines in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. A reasonable
accommodation is a modification or adjustment to an instructional activity, facility, program or service that
enables a qualified student with a disability to have an equal opportunity. To be eligible for accommodations, a
student must have a documented disability as defined by the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of
1973. Both the ADA and Section 504 define disability as (a) a physical or mental impairment that substantially
limits one or more major life activities of such individual; (b) a record of such impairment; or (c) being regarded
as having such condition.

There is a basic pattern to the street numbers in Chicago beginning in the Loop at the intersection of State Street
(which runs north-south) and Madison Street (which runs east-west). The diagram below illustrates this principle.
There are generally 100 numbers in a block, so you can roughly estimate that a place at 200 South Dearborn
is two blocks south of Madison; a place at 444 West Monroe would be four blocks west of State Street. 800
numbers cover about one mile; the distance between 100 North Michigan and 900 North Michigan Avenue is
one mile. Since there are diagonal streets in Chicago, this rule may not apply.




                                                                                                                67

                                    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR
  DIETARY GUIDELINES                DAILY FOOD CHOICES


A balanced diet of nutrient-rich foods is a key component of overall health. Follow the food
group recommendations to help you eat better every day. Each of these food groups provides
some, but not all, of the nutrients you need.
A healthy diet is one that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free or low-fat
milk products; includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts; and is low in saturated
fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium) and added sugars.
Daily recommendations vary depending on age, weight, calorie intake and exercise patterns. The United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA) has developed a website, ChooseMyPlate.gov, to help you figure out the foods and portions that are
right for you.
