1.  Clinical Rotations Staying After Hours

Posted 9 days ago
We have fielded multiple inquiries as to the TOUCH eligibility for staying after hours at clinical rotations. Hours after clinic are not TOUCH eligible if they involve any tasks that would also be performed during the rotation, as this is more analogous to studying than volunteering.

If you were to stay after hours at the clinical rotation site for other purposes (example: playing board games with inpatients) then those hours would be TOUCH eligible as it would be analogous to volunteering your time at another hospital (example: to socialize with the inpatient population).
