Third and fourth year students must attend all clerkship rotations. The Department of Clinical Education establishes its own attendance requirements stated in the Rotation Manual. Attendance and on-call requirements for clinical rotations, as well as AZCOM scheduled events, take precedence over non-rotation events as well as AZCOM scheduled events. Students must be sure that the requirements of each clinical rotation are understood and will be met prior to scheduling non-rotation events. An unapproved absence during a rotation may result in a failed grade for the rotation.
