Students in the Foundations Phase of the curriculum should report absences to the Office of the Executive Associate Dean. Student absences in the Applications, Discovery and Translations Phases of the curriculum should be reported to the Office of the Associate Dean for Clinical Education at Grady. Students unable to meet as scheduled with individual preceptors must ALSO notify the preceptor personally as well as the course director and appropriate dean’s office. Written notification of excused absences will be sent to the course or clerkship directors when appropriate.
When absence due to illness extends beyond 48 hours, a signed physician’s report may be required (from the University Health Service or from the student’s personal physician).
