Personal sessions for students in clinic


Please note: All Students in Clinic Beginning Summer 2014

Please note that the Office of Student Affairs and Clinic Scheduling will begin enforcing the 10 day requirement at the beginning of summer semester in May 2014. At that time, all planned absences (i.e., any time you know in advance that you will be absent from clinic, either for excused absences or personal sessions) must be submitted at least 10 working days in advance or your request will be denied.

Why are we starting to enforce this requirement? We’ve seen an increase in the number of last minute schedule changes this year, which is challenging for our clinic schedulers and, ultimately, inconvenient for our patients. Let’s work together to keep this process running smoothly and efficiently. Please see Sara Johnson with questions or feedback.
