Policy of the Week - UPDATED POLICY

Student Pagers (Policy 955.00)

Early in the Clerkship Year each student is assigned a specific pager. Students accepting pager assignments agree to abide by the terms of this policy as listed below, with the understanding that they are responsible for pagers assigned to them and that the pager is assigned to them for a limited time.

  1. Pagers are intended for use by the assigned student only and should not be given to other students for their use.
  2. Students are responsible for returning the pager when they cease to be enrolled at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. Pagers must be returned prior to graduation. Unneeded pagers can be returned to Office of Medical Student Education (OMSE) at any time.
  3. Lost, stolen, broken or misused pagers are the responsibility of the assigned student. A replacement fee of $200 for pagers and $5 for sleeves will be automatically billed to the student's account unless otherwise arranged. Students with outstanding or delinquent charges will not receive their diploma upon graduation.
Procedures

When assigned, the Office of Medical Student Education (OMSE) will record identifying pager information in the student's electronic academic history file.

OMSE will ensure that student names and pager numbers are given to appropriate staff at UVMMC. Please note that neither Telecom nor UVMMC Provider Access Service (PAS) will accept pager updates, except in emergency situations.

When a pager is returned to OMSE, the student's electronic academic history file will be updated to reflect this. This electronic notation serves as proof of receipt for the student. Pagers left in the Office without receipt noted will be considered lost and students charged a replacement fee as listed above.
