Attendance and calling in sick
Call-in requirements and guidelines for student absences are determined by the placement area and clinical faculty requirements. Please discuss with your teachers and preceptors the appropriate protocol for reporting an absence.
There are times when, for your own health and the health of your co-workers and patients, that you should not attend work due to illness.
If there is an outbreak declared where a student has their placement and you develop an infectious illness, you will be required to follow up with OH&S.
