Students are expected and required to attend ambulatory clinics, inpatient consultations, grand round and medical student didactics.  There will be an end of rotation quiz assessment.  The final grade will be determined based on clinical attendance and performance, didactic participation as well as the quiz.

The week prior to your rotation, you will be sent a clinic and didactic schedule.  You will also be told which resident will meet and orient you on the first day.  The orientating resident will reach out to you few days before the start of your rotation to arrange for a time and place to meet. If needed, you will receive an up-to-date schedule of clinics and didactic sessions when you arrive.

In general, the workday starts at 8:45 AM, though there are important teaching conferences that may occur at an earlier time on some days. Clinics and/or consultations generally end by 5:30 PM. Resident didactic sessions typically take place on Wednesday mornings beginning at 8:00 AM.  Our monthly Grand Rounds takes place on a Wednesday morning of each month at the Shapiro Ambulatory Care Center, 8th floor clinic.  Unless otherwise specified, you are expected to attend all teaching conferences occurring on days when you are here.

Please let Dr. Margaret Lee, the Course Director,  know in advance any dates that you anticipate being away from the rotation for any reason. Students are allowed maximum of 5 days of absence during the 4 week block period. Additional absence must be approved by the course director.
