If it becomes necessary for you to be absent during your rotation, please obtain an absence form from the Education office. This form must be completed by the student and signed/approved by the department. The policy for absence is two days out of the four week period.
The hospitals have adopted Body Substance Precautions (BSP). This is a system of infection prevention practices used for all patients. These practices involve the use of protective barriers (gloves, gowns, facial protection) for contact with body substances, mucous membranes or in-tact skin, regardless of the patient's diagnosis.
The type of barrier used depends on the specific procedure or patient interaction. Each department's Exposure Control Plan outlines the minimum required protection that must be worn.
Gloves are required when a procedure or task is likely to involve contact with blood or other body fluids, mucous membranes, or non-intact skin.
Facial protection (mask, eyeglasses with side shields, face shield) is required when one can reasonably anticipate blood or body fluids being splashed in the face.
All barrier equipment is available in each patient care area. The use of BSP for all patients will effectively isolate all infections, except those spread by the respiratory droplet or airborne routes.
The Department of Family Medicine and the Emergency Departments will provide emergency visits for medical students. Students will need to refer to their own personal insurance hospitalization plan for information on coverage.
If your school asks for an evaluation of your performance on their form, please ensure that it is provided to the Medical Student Education Office upon your arrival date. Please do not submit your evaluation form directly to the attending in your medical department. We are not able to follow up on evaluations given directly to departments and often no copy of the evaluation is made. CMHS forms will be submitted to the Dean of Students Affairs or another designated official of your school if your school does not provide us with their form. If there is an office other than the Dean's office at your school to which the evaluations are to be sent, please ensure the name and address of the individual to receive your evaluation is submitted to our office.
Prior to the completion of your elective, you will be expected to complete a teaching and rotation evaluation to evaluate your experience here. This information is very important as it provides us with critical information about our rotations, what is good, bad, etc. If you have any questions about the use of evaluations, please feel free to ask for additional information. Final grades will not be forwarded to your school until you have completed a teaching and rotation evaluation.
You can have your mail forwarded to the Department of Medical Education, CMHS, P.O. Box 17666, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates
