Protected Academic Days For NBME Exam Preparation

All students during the last week of their medicine and surgery cores are to be given two days off before their NBME clinical subject exam, as well as the day of the exam. All students during their last week of ob/gyn, pediatrics, psychiatry, and family medicine/general practice rotations are to be given one day off before the exam, as well as the day of the exam. These days are protected academic time for self-study and exam preparation and considered an integral part of these rotations. While all clerkship directors must comply with this policy, they do have the option of allowing additional time off for study.
