students on clinical rotations are assigned to health facilities both on and
off a UAB campus. Students assigned to any of the three campuses, Birmingham,
Huntsville or Tuscaloosa, could have rotations located outside their local calling
area. It is important for staff and administration of the School of Medicine
to be able to reach our students for purposes related to school business or
emergencies. Therefore, state-wide paging access is required.
actively enrolled MS3 and MS4 students are required to subscribe to a state-wide
paging service provided by UAB Radio Paging. They are expected to have this
service in place and a number assigned to them by the first day of Transition
Course/Registration Day for the MS3 year. They are to have continuous service
throughout their clinical years and maintain an active pager until their graduation
from The University of Alabama School of Medicine.
Pager numbers for MS3 and
MS4 students are required student directory information and are to be to be
maintained by the School of Medicine Registrar's Office. Any change in the student
pager number is to be submitted by the student to the Registrar's Office for
change in the Student Information System.
