Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to be present for assigned clinical duties. Directions are provided to each clinical site.


Your attendance at ALL workshops is mandatory. You will be graded based on your punctuality, preparation, and participation


Students who are ill during the clerkship should notify their preceptor with whom they are working with on that day. Absences for other reasons must be cleared with the Geriatric Clerkship Office. Prolonged absences (more than 1 day) need to be approved by the Student Affairs Office.  Students who are away from the clerkship for a period of time will need to make up the time missed before they can receive a final clerkship grade.
