Rotation slots in U.S. hospitals are highly competitive. As such, cancelling a scheduled rotation will result in one of the following outcomes:

  • If a student cancels/reschedules a rotation for any reason within nine weeks of the start date of the rotation, a rotation cancellation fee of $1,000 will be charged, plus any third-party fees that the school may be charged due to this cancellation. In certain exceptional cases, a student may cancel/reschedule a rotation up to nine weeks before the start of rotation if they provide a valid reason (e.g., sickness, death in the family) that is approved by the Dean of Clinical Sciences. It is at the discretion of SJSM to determine and approve the validity of the reason for cancellation. If not approved, a rotation cancellation fee of $1,000 will be charged.
  • If the student cancels/reschedules the rotation with more than nine weeks’ notice, a fee of $500 will be charged to the student’s account.
