23 + FAQs Why is everyone getting a clinic spot and Im not? Be patient. The volunteer coordinators have a system where they are aware of how many clinic spots each student gets. As the year progresses and T1s have more opportunities to volunteer, the spots will be reviewed based on how many clinic spots you have had in the past. What if I cant make it to clinic? You are responsible for finding a replacement. You must forward the clinic info to your replacement and notify the volunteer coordinator of your replacement. Failure to do this will result in a deduction of service learning hours. What if I dont know how to do something? Please ask! Ask your partner, upperclassmen, clinic coordinator, attending physician. We understand this is a learning process and want to facilitate your understanding while provide care for members of the community
