Meal Ticket Policy

Drexel University College of Medicine and its affiliates recognize the importance of providing a comfortable and cooperative environment for students. In this regard, students function and provide assistance to residents and staff during clinical rotations. It is up to the discretion of the individual hospital/site whether on call meals are included. If a site agrees to provide meal tickets, or equivalents, for a medical student performing a clinical rotation at their site, the guidelines may vary.

The exact amount of the meal ticket is somewhat dependent on the cost of food at the individual cafeteria, and whether or not discounts are applicable for employees, residents, and students. The amount assigned to the meal ticket will be determined by the hospital administration.

INFORMATION: Identification badges are necessary to use meal tickets/cards. Dollar amounts attached to the meal tickets vary from site to site. If your selection is more than the amount of the ticket, you will be responsible for any additional cost of your meal. If your selection is less than the specified dollar amount, you will NOT be refunded any difference.

NOTE: Lost, stolen, or abused meal tickets will not be replaced.

Scrub Attire Policy

It is a student's responsibility to determine and to follow the policy regarding scrub suits at the various clinical training sites. Scrub attire is worn in designated areas for infection control and may not be taken from the premises unless the individual is in possession of an authorized property removal slip. Security officers are instructed to stop all individuals entering or leaving the hospital wearing or in possession of scrub attire. Names of students stopped for this infraction are reported to the Dean's Office.
