You are expected to arrive in clinical garb.
That means scrubs lab coat on, I.D. around
neck, hair combed, etc.
  • If I have to ask you to put on your I.D., lab
    coat, (yada yada yada), this will result in a
    grade deduction and possibly being left at school.

However, please check in with them before every
clinical rotation.
I will get a list of your homeroom tutorial
teachers and email them when clinical rotation
Okay, thanks.
Hi. Im here. May I leave for clinical

    enough time to make it down. It is better to be

If you are late
  • The morning bus departs at 805 am.
  • If you are late, you are absent!

    clinical site, the bus will circle the block
  • If you are not outside when the bus returns, you
    will need to call a parent and get a ride back to
    the school.

  • Not being on time when your bus arrives is a
    serious offence (esp. in pm class)
  • It will result in a large point deduction off
    your daily clinical grade.
  • (this is whether the bus picks you up on the
    second go-round or you have to find your own

Clinical Grade
  • You will have 2 separate clinical grades
  1. Rotation grade - based on clinical attire,
    grooming, promptness, etc.
  2. Clinical assignments - medical terms, journals,
    case studies

A few more things--
  • Please stay in your assigned area or with your
    mentor for duration of rotation. Ask for
    reference book or etc. if slow. Take initiative.
    Do not sit or doze off. If not in assigned area
    and/or do not text mezero, Class conduct to P,
    AP calls parent. If we get in trouble and
    supervisor contactszero, office conduct to P, AP
    calls parent, and not allowed to clinical
    rotation. If affects DeBakeys AAzero, Office
    conduct to P, AP, calls parent, no clinical
    rotation, and suspension.
  • Do not make stops to and/or from site. This
    means food courts, nursery, other departments to
    see relative or friends.
  • Always be respectful, demonstrate interest, and
    honor confidentiality.
  • Let your mentor know when leaving. Wash hands
    when you return to campus.
  • Let me know if you have any incidents at the site
    ex. Amniotic fluid or if anyone questions you or
    if you get in trouble.
  • Text me if you cant find your mentor or there is
    nothing going on, bored. Dont assign yourself
    to a department or mentor.
  • Or you dont feel good or if your mentor says go
    take a break, etc. ALWAYS TEXT ME . Let me
    know so I can help or guide you. That is my job.
    But you have to take the initiative to ask me or
    let me know your situation.
