Medical students are expected to maintain the highest standards of professionalism including conducting themselves in a courteous manner with patients, visitors, and staff. Attire and grooming will be consistent with that expected of a physician during the course of all patient care and any other rotation experiences. Clean white lab jackets and clearly visible hospital ID badges are to be worn at all times. Scrubs and white coats may be worn while students are in the Emergency Department, NICU, PICU, and Special Care Nursery and when on Night Float.
A variety of suitable housing is available close to the hospital. For those who prefer living in an urban setting, there are apartments within walking distance from Akron Children's. The cost depends on the type of housing and the amenities. Medical students must secure their own housing. Call rooms are furnished during Night Float.
You are responsible for your meals. For students who are participating in a Sub-Internship, you will be provided a meal allowance for Night Float.
Medical students are provided with key card access for parking at no charge. A free shuttle service is available to and from the parking lots. It operates from 5 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. An escort service is available after 8:30 p.m.
Akron Children's Hospital does not provide malpractice insurance or health insurance to visiting medical students. A record of immunizations, documented proof of health insurance and malpractice coverage provided by your medical school must accompany your application or it will not be processed.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
