CLINICAL AFFAIRS

As of today, August 15, your “Required Documents and Immunizations” on Exxat must be up to date. The only deadline that has been extended is for health insurance (it’s extended to September 1). 

There are answers to your questions. Clinical Affairs uses email and office hours to answer your questions on clinical experiences, residency applications, immunizations, and more.

Clinical Affairs office hours are every Tuesday and Wednesday from 1–2 p.m. in the main room of building 1. 

For questions about…

  • Third/fourth year calendars, researching residencies, or application process(es) and items, visit during office hours
  • Clinicals (credentialing for research with an outside preceptor; rotations, specialty conferences, CiM, outside healthcare affiliations, etc.), email clined@noordacom.org
  • Immunizations or EXXAT issues, email studenthealth@noordacom.org

WELLNESS/IPE

Interprofessional speed-dating is mandatory. Please sign up for one of our “speed dating” interprofessional events on September 14 – it’s informative, and dinner will be served!
