If you have not done so, please follow this link.The same holds true for requesting absences for religious holidays: You must complete the religious holiday form and receive an acknowledgment from the College. If you have not done so, please follow this link.
Please note that you will be asked to state on this form the remediation plan that you worked out with your course/clerkship site director. Please do that before you complete this form.
If the absence results in you missing a required activity in more than one course, you must submit a separate absence report for each course.
You selected the NBME exam. Even though it is technically a component of a clerkship, you should discuss this absence with Dr. Nofziger (firstname.lastname@example.org, 330.325.6582) and let the test administrator know as well - Lisa Morris: email@example.com, 330.325.6334 or Sara Adair:firstname.lastname@example.org, 330.325.6808. You do not need to fill out a separate absence notification for the clerkship.
