Attendance

Absences:

Your role as an AI is essential to the proper functioning of the team. Your presence is required. You cannot be absent except in the case of emergency. Interviews for residency positions should be scheduled for other months. In accordance with the University’s policy for attendance on clinical rotations, up to 2 days may be missed at the discretion of your attending on service. These days are required to be made up during the month, and you should not miss a call night. An absence of three days or longer will result in an incomplete grade unless the absence is approved ahead of time by the course director. “Personal illness and family emergencies are examples of legitimate reasons for being absent. Weddings, family visits, and pre-purchased airline tickets” are not.
