Clerkship Attendance Policy

Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine

Third and fourth year students must attend all clerkship rotations. The Department of Clinical Education establishes its own attendance requirements stated in the Clinical Clerkship Manual.  Attendance and on-call requirements for clinical rotations, as well as AZCOM scheduled events, take precedence over non-rotation 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. 

Students are advised to refer to the Clinical Clerkship Manual for more details.
