Absences From CCC
All absences must be made up with either clinic work or a written assignment as determined by Dr. German or Dr. Powell. Extenuating circumstances (i.e. illness, scholarly presentations, etc.) will be considered on a case by case basis. We need at least two weeks advanced notice to reschedule your patients, but the earlier we know that you will be out, the better. You will be expected to help the front desk contact your patients in order to reschedule their visits if you give us less than two weeks prior notice of an anticipated absence.
Of course, there will be the exceptional times when an absence cannot be anticipated, such as an acute illness. Please inform us as soon as this is known. In the case of a sudden and unanticipated absence, other students in your group will see your patients that day.
It will be beneficial to all - staff, patients, and yourself - to make all arrangements as soon as possible.
Make-up of missed CCC time will be allowed at the rate of no more than one half-day per week.
