Visiting Students: Where can I receive my scrub code?

The Office of Medical Education does not provide scrubs or scrub codes to visiting students. For surgical rotations, please contact your coordinator to see if scrubs will be set up for you. Otherwise, please bring your own, or you can purchase them from the CUMC bookstore at 711 West 168th St. New York, NY 10032.

**Do not purchase scrubs until you contact your department.

Many electives will require students to wear short white coats. You are encouraged to bring your own. You can also purchase a coat from the campus bookstore.

P&S Students Only: If you are having difficulty with your scrub code, please use the 'OPEN TICKET' feature of UserVoice.
