Vacation breaks are scheduled at the end of each semester to allow students time off. Typically, all students get a two-week semester break from classes at the end of semester 1 and 2. During the semester breaks at the end of semesters 3, 4, and 5, students will have clinical duties for half of each break based on their group (A or B) and vacation during the other half of the break.
Vacation time from the start of semester 6 through the end of semester 9 will be as follows: two (2) weeks will be scheduled (5-day blocks) with the clinical office through the Coordinator of Clinical Support, and all students will be on vacation for one week in early September prior to the start of the Senior Elective.
Students may be scheduled a call-shift on the weekend prior to, or the day after vacation. Students will want to check their call schedule prior to making any travel arrangements during their vacation time.
