A PHOTO ID BADGE IS REQUIRED AT ALL CLERKSHIP SITES. If the badge that was issued to you during your second year has been lost or stolen, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 206.543.5560. Your UW badge will be good for all rotations until graduation.

Work Hours Policy

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.
