Pre Clerkship (M1 and M2) Absence Policy

Students attending the CUNY School of Medicine must comply with the attendance policy in all years of education and training. Students must attend and actively participate in all components of the curriculum, including required lectures, small group sessions, laboratories, fieldwork, patient clinics, and other course activities. Absence from courses is discouraged and should be avoided whenever possible. Absence from any required course activity must be reported.

While the above absence policy is a general CUNY School of Medicine policy, students should refer to each course syllabus for details specific to the course.

● Course directors will track student attendance at mandatory sessions.

● If a student has more than one unapproved absence, the course director may submit a professionalism documentation form to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
