The above must be uploaded by each Member using their personal Document Upload Portal link, and its approval is a pre-requisite for becoming Fully Enrolled Certified. However, AmeriClerkships reserves the right to:
- Approve a delayed upload of the above required document for a limited time if AmeriClerkships Member does not have the above document, but will be obtaining it shortly after FEC (e.g. driving into Miami from Chicago 17 days prior to a scheduled start date, and has not checked into a hotel yet), OR
- Delay a Member’s Clinical Block Start Date if the document uploaded does not sufficiently satisfy the requirements of this new policy.
If symptomatic or been diagnosed with COVID-19: Do not report to your scheduled clinical block and seek immediate treatment. Also please file a support case immediately so we can postpone and attempt to fully preserve your upcoming clinical block with no fees. AmeriClerkships and healthcare facilities reserve the right to pause or even stop a Member’s clinical block if the member or his/her attending physician reports to us that the Member was exposed to, or diagnosed with COVID-19. If this occurs, AmeriClerkships will issue an immediate Credit on File for the affected clinical block valid for 3 years, and waive all schedule change fees (except clinical site difference fees).
Healthcare facilities have also indicated that they will most likely ask for proof of the same at the start of each clinical block, and if it can not be provided, the Member will be asked to delay his/her start by at least 14 days if they choose to remain in the state. The delayed start will most likely be added at the end of a delayed clinical block, but can not be guaranteed if it was this delay could have been prevented by complying with this new policy. Failure to upload, or unapproved delays to provide this document may result in delays of the start date and the incursion of various re-processing fees by Member. AmeriClerkships reserves the right to update or modify this policy at its own discretion. Your cooperation is appreciated as we all do our part to control the spread of COVID-19.
