VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook
OMS 3 and OMS 4 Tardiness Tardiness is defined as arriving more than 5 minutes after the scheduled time the preceptor designates as the expected arrival time. Students are expected to arrive on time to all clinical rotations. If a student is late, he/she must notify the Site Coordinator and the preceptor prior to arrival. Students must have a reason for being late such as illness or vehicle issues, and it is not anticipated that this would occur on more than one occasion. Repeated tardiness is considered as unprofessional behavior and is a reason for dismissal from a rotation. Students with repeated tardiness will be referred to the Honor Code Council. Didactic, Case Presentations, and OMM Workshop Attendance Students are required to attend VCOM and clinical site didactics, case presentations, and OMM workshops as scheduled by VCOM and the DSME's office. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of this schedule and attend all required activities. VCOM will publish a monthly didactic calendar. Responsibilities to the precepting faculty do not take precedence over required didactics unless so determined by the DSME. Students must be prompt to all didactics as well as rotations. In addition to the VCOM sponsored didactics, each rotation may have specific requirements such as case presentations, morning reports, OMM workshops, etc. These also may vary by site. Students should complete all requirements set by their site. Didactic Attendance Students are to attend all didactic programs unless excused by the DSME.
