Although the Wichita Campus does not close for inclement weather very often, it's always important for students to know the policy as far as rotations are concerned.
Even if the medical school is closed, students are not necessarily excused from their clinical responsibilities. Each clerkship director will make the decision whether to require students to attend teaching rounds and other clinical responsibilities.
A policy is in place for the clerkship coordinators to contact ASA if all clinical obligations for a rotation are canceled due to inclement weather. The appropriate students will be paged. The bottom line is - if a student does not get a page, he or she will be required to participate in all clinical responsibilities for the day. If a student feels he or she cannot work, he or she is required to call his attending about an anticipated absence.
If you have any questions, please contact ASA at 293-2603.
The safety and security of the students on the Wichita Campus is of the utmost importance to the security staff. Security officers generally are on duty on campus from 6 a.m. to 12:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.
When the Wichita Campus is closed to the general public, it is protected with access control and alarm systems at all times. Student access cards allow access to the campus 24/7 through the Main entrance (by the flag pole), the West Atrium entrance on the far west side of campus as well as the Student Center entrance. A good practice to remember is to leave through the same door you entered through. For your safety, please do not prop open any doors or open any doors to allow access for any person you do not personally know.
Any criminal activity observed or suspected on campus or immediately surrounding the Wichita Campus should be reported to security at 293-2662 (or 3-2663 from any campus phone). The on-duty security officer also can be reached on the security cell phone at 648-8329.
Lost and found property can be turned in to or reclaimed at the security office located in the lobby by the Midtown clinic on the east end of the Wichita Campus.
