Great new message to all Ross students interviewing for residency. Not only do we not get certain cores until deep into the interview season, now we can not take days off for interviews...
It really feels good to be at a school that seems to ALWAYS be working against you....
Dear Ross Student:
(Semesters 8, 9 and 10)
You are being sent this notice because many of you, not all, have been taking off too much time during your rotations to interview for Residency. While we realize this is certainly a significant part of your medical education career here at Ross, you MUST adhere to the rules set forth at each particular hospital for every rotation you complete.
Please read this statement carefully and if you feel that you need further clarification, you may contact me directly, or alternatively, please feel free to communicate with Dr. C, Dean - Clinical Sciences, or your assigned Clinical Advisor.
- Time off during Rotations - Ross University has a 100% attendance policy during all clinical rotations. It is up to each individual hospital to enforce their attendance rules and our students are expected to abide by those rules. It is unacceptable for a student to miss multiple days to interview for Residency Positions. Students should plan ahead to take time off during the interview period (November - January). Short (2-3 week) electives can be done so that interviews could be scheduled between them.
