FAQs
Why is everyone getting a clinic spot and I’m not?


What if I can’t make it to clinic?


Be patient. The volunteer coordinators have a system where they are
aware of how many clinic spots each student gets. As the year
progresses and T1s have more opportunities to volunteer, the spots
will be reviewed based on how many clinic spots you have had in the
past.
You are responsible for finding a replacement. You must forward the
clinic info to your replacement and notify the volunteer coordinator of
your replacement. Failure to do this will result in a deduction of
service learning hours.
What if I don’t know how to do something?

Please ask! Ask your partner, upperclassmen, clinic coordinator,
attending physician. We understand this is a learning process and
want to facilitate your understanding while provide care for members
of the community
