A group hospitalization insurance policy is provided for each student upon admission
to the program. UF Health Jacksonville provides the insurance and pays the student
premiums for the duration of their training. A copy of the policy will be provided
to each student after the appropriate forms have been completed.
A $10,000 life insurance policy is also provided to each student at no cost. The
cost of these policies is absorbed by the hospital as a benefit to the student.
Meal tickets are provided for each student for use in the hospital cafeteria and
must be used only by the person to whom the ticket has been issued. The meal ticket
is to be used only during scheduled hours in the hospital. The ticket will permit
each student lunch. In the event the meal ticket is lost or stolen, cost of replacement
must be borne by the student. Students are allowed one half hour for lunch during
a scheduled shift. Lunch schedules will be arranged by the faculty or immediate
supervisor in the clinical area assigned. Current meal ticket value is $35/week.
