Policy on Scheduled Time During the First 100 Weeks

The Zucker School of Medicine is committed to creating an environment that supports the development of independent learners through self-directed learning. As such, the schedule in the First 100 Weeks is designed to ensure adequate time for self-directed learning.

Due to the demands of the New York State Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) curriculum required class and clinical time does not exceed 24 hours per week on average during the From the Person to the Professional: Challenges, Privileges, and Responsibilities (CPR) course. Required class and clinical time does not exceed 22 hours per week on average for all other courses in the First 100 Weeks. Class is scheduled five days per week.

Compliance with this policy is monitored by the First 100 Weeks Subcommittee of the Curriculum Committee and the assistant dean for medical education. The Office of Curriculum Support tracks scheduled time and provides timely reports to the First 100 Weeks Subcommittee and assistant dean for medical education.
