Personal Days

Students are allotted a maximum of 20 personal days during the 20 months of Phase 2. Time off is arranged in advance by the student with the clinical site coordinators and reported by the student to the program administration each month (if applicable). Time off from Phase 2 cannot be divided across multiple days.  Students may not request scheduled time off during periods of remediation or probation or during specialty rotations (e.g. pediatrics, cardiovascular/thoracic, neurosurgery). The Program Director may deny requested time off on a case-by-case basis due to program, student or clinical site needs.
