all Chronic Care students
If the first day of the rotation falls on a UW holiday, orientation will be held the next business day.
If the last day of the rotation falls on a UW holiday, final presentations will be moved to the day before the last day.
Policy for Holidays
As a member of a health care team in the 3rd and 4th years there are no guaranteed days off except for match day. This includes University of Washington holidays, traditional observances, and major days of religious significance. Students are expected to follow the holiday practice of the clinic/hospital/site at which they are rotating. Meaning, if it is a holiday at your site, you may get the day off. If it is a working day for your site, you must show up. Night call and rounding schedules take precedence. To plan ahead for holidays, you may wish to call the practice site in advance and inquire.
If you do not yet know what site you will be at, contact the clerkship coordinator.
