Please note: West Valley is requiring all students who rotate at their facility to be drug tested. The West Valley Education Coordinator, Kellie Forman will email you in advance of your rotation with specific instructions. Students enrolled in this clerkship should make every effort to complete the required drug screen in Seattle through the Compliance Office (Laura Ellis) prior to the clerkship start date. The site will require you to be alcohol tested in person the first week of the clerkship at no cost to you. UW has a direct bill account with West Valley and students should follow instructions from Kellie and the ID WWAMI office regarding process for setting up an appointment for alcohol testing.
One week prior to your rotation you will recive another email that will contain Orientation information. This will include time, location and what to expect on your first day. Please also check the information under the main "Clerkship" tab at the top of this page. Choose "Orientation" in the dropdown menu.

The goals of the medical students and the faculty of the School of Medicine are one and the same: to get the best medical education possible while not ignoring overall health and happiness. Attention needs to be paid to both duty/work hours and personal time.
Work hours rules have been developed for residents, but similar rules have not been developed for medical students. There are obvious differences in terms of goals, reimbursement, and responsibilities between residents and students. Nonetheless, some guidelines for students apply.
