Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine

Students interested in attending osteopathic conferences, lobby days, specialty-focused meetings, or any medically or educationally related presentation offered while classes are in session must submit a written request for an excused absence a minimum of 30 days prior to the event date.

OMS 1 and OMS 2 students must be in good academic standing and receive written approval from a representative of the Dean's Office to attend the event. OMS 3 and OMS 4 students should follow the procedure for obtaining an excused absence from rotations as described in the Clinical Clerkship Manual.

Students are advised to wait until approval has been granted prior to making travel arrangements. Any costs incurred due to a student being denied approval to attend an off-campus event are the sole responsibility of the student.

Please refer to the Clinical Clerkship Manual for further information regarding 3rd and 4th year students making similar requests.
