Programs and/or individuals with oversight of schedule development may establish and communicate procedures for the development of schedules. House Officers are responsible for meeting any program timelines or requirements related to schedule requests. If the House Officer does not submit their requests by the specified deadline, they forgo the opportunity to have such requests accommodated for the applicable rotation/block. The parties acknowledge that unforeseen circumstances occur from time to time for both House Officers and the Programs. Unforeseen urgent circumstances, which are expected to be rare, may be considered if a House Officer misses a specific deadline for a schedule request. It is understood, however, that the Program will not delay the posting of schedules, nor incur significant additional burden to revise schedules that have already been developed, in order to accommodate late scheduling requests.
