    Rotations, Payment, and Time

    Advertisements



    Perhaps some of you - those having actually done clinical rotations or attempted to do so - can answer this.

    Suppose a semester is, say, 16 weeks long. Now, suppose you are only able to be scheduled for a 6 or 12 week rotation due to availability.

    Are you charged for the entire semester regardless of the length of your rotation, OR is the 16 week semester only considered to be a full semester if you actually spend 16 weeks IN rotations?

    Thanks to you all!

    the clinical semesters are broken down into 5 15 week semester for a total of 75 weeks that are needed to graduate. you pay at the beginning of each 15 week cycle, you pay the full tuition. if your rotation is less than 15 weeks, say 6 weeks, you have 9 weeks left where you dont have any additional fees. when you finish those 9 weeks of rotation the school will send another tuition statement for the next 15 weeks. sometimes you may go over 1 or 2 weeks in another rotation, but eventually the bill will come. for me personally i did a 4 week elective in which they sent me the tuition statement and then had 12 weeks of IM, the school didnt send me another bill until i fished IM even though i did 16 weeks. they wouldnt let me start my next rotation unless i paid for my next 15 weeks even though 1 week was already done.

    Thank you, doc4u - exactly the precise answer I was looking for!

    I was a bit concerned that with these for-profits, they might charge for a whole semester, but you'd only get a partial semester's worth of rotations.

    Best wishes in your future career path!
