Housing

  • Housing accommodations vary across sites.

  • Housing Needs Survey

    • Complete as part of your 3rd year registration

    • Critical to know:

      • If you are bringing anyone with you.

      • If you are willing to share housing with person of opposite sex.

    • Notify the School of Medicine immediately if your needs change.


Scenes from SE Alaska


Call & Pagers

  • Call varies from site to site

  • As often as every third night though less in many sites

  • If this is of concern, contact the site coordinator for updated information

  • Bring your pager and/or cell phone if it will work; this is NOT required

  • Sites often provide pagers when needed


Duty Hours / Absence Policy

  • Duty Hours and Absence Policy are similar to all other third-year clerkships

  • Details are on our web site

  • Communicate time off needs before the start of the clerkship, after reading policy

  • Few exceptions made except for personal emergencies

  • Expect to be in clinic the entire last week

  • Sites determine whether you work on UW holidays (as with all clerkships).
