  2. Unexpected Absences Policy Update/Change

A proposal to change aspects of our attendance policy. Removed the single day aspect and didn’t limit it to just illness; student must notify the responsible faculty, mentor or senior resident when on clinical service; also notify Course/Clerkship Director; added that all students must log into their Phase Canvas page. When the absence is greater duration than 3 days, student must notify Office of Student Affairs. The onus is on the students to report and being very clear that this is a professionalism issue. Updates also included Jacksonville.

A motion was made to approve the changes, seconded and approved.
