ATTENDANCE POLICY

The College of Medicine Curriculum Committee strongly supports allowing students one day off service per week. 

Senior students may be allowed time off of electives in order to participate in medical meetings or to take the  USMLE Step 2 CK exam.  The elective director must approve each student’s request individually and determine what make-up, if any, is required. 

RELEASE TIME – HOUSE OFFICER INTERVIEWING

Senior medical students may request up to five (5) weekdays and two (2) weekend days off from each of four (4) electives for the purpose of interviewing for a post-graduate position.  Absence requests should be made to the elective director at least two weeks prior to the start of the rotation/elective.  This elective director must approve each student’s request individually and determine what make-up, if any is required. 

It is the student’s responsibility to ask the clinical departments about planned absences.
