All internships and clinical activities (in hospitals or with individual mentors) are expected to be embarked upon with professionalism. This includes showing up on time and professionally dressed, or giving notice if illness prevents you from attending your shift. It also includes fulfilling the commitments you make. If the position offers significant training and requires an investment of time and money in setting up your experience, you may be required to commit for a minimum time period. Entering into commitments you cannot keep shows a lack of professionalism. If these experiences are ones that have been negotiated by HPAO, such as those in the clinical shadowing binder and the Prince George's Hospital Center, HPAO may be alerted when there is a lapse in professionalism.
