Policies and Procedures Regarding Transportation to and from Campus/Clinical Sites

POLICY PROHIBITING DRIVING WITH FACULTY/STAFF

For safety reasons, and in circumstances other than an emergency or EMS experiential activity, students are not permitted to drive with program faculty, including the Program Director, Medical Director, Principal Faculty, and Instructional Faculty (including but not limited to clinical preceptors) or staff of the Department or Program.

TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM CAMPUS AND CLINICAL SITES

Students are responsible for their own transportation, and any related expenses, to and from College campuses, clinical sites, conferences and other educational activities. If students are unable to secure their own transportation to program-required activities, they must immediately inform the Program Director or, if in the clinical phase of training, the Director of Clinical Education. In rare circumstances, students may be provided an excused absence for a maximum of one day due to non-weather related transportation issues. Other circumstances (e.g., loss of vehicle, loss of driving license) extending beyond one day may result in an unexcused absence and subsequently require a leave of absence, program deceleration, or dismissal from the MPAS Program.
