Description:

As a volunteer in the UCSD Pre-Dental Society & Student-Run Free Dental Clinic Project (UCSD FDC-PDS), you are expected to be on-time for all events and clinical shifts. However, we do understand this isn’t always possible, and as-such, the NO-SHOW policy has been implemented to define the rules and procedures for these situations.

Policy:

Volunteers in our program are held to a high standard of responsibility. The UCSD FDC-PDS has implemented a “three strikes” process. Each strike imposes a stricter penalty than the last.

1st Strike:

A $25 “No-Show” penalty will be assessed to your MyPDS account. Payment of this fee will release the hold from your MyPDS account and restore your eligibility within our clinics and special events (non-inclusive of GBM, required / optional training sessions).

2nd Strike:

A $25 “No-Show” penalty will be assessed to your MyPDS account, along with a 1 month suspension. This suspension bars your eligibility to attend our events, or to serve in our clinics.

Payment of this fee and satisfaction of the 1 month suspension will release the hold from your MyPDS account and restore your eligibility within our clinics and special events (non-inclusive of GBM, required / optional training sessions).

3rd Strike:

A $25 “No-Show” penalty will be assessed to your MyPDS account, along with a 3 month suspension. This suspension removes your eligibility to attend our events, or to serve in our clinics.

Payment of this fee and satisfaction of the 3 month suspension will release the hold from your MyPDS account and restore your eligibility within our clinics and special events (non-inclusive of GBM, required / optional training sessions).

All Strikes:

All assessments of the NO-SHOW policy will be reviewed by the UCSD FDC-PDS Student Directors (FDC Student Clinical Director, PDS Student Director, NGO Student Director, and any Assistant /Co-Student Directors under the FDC/PDS/NGO divisions) to ensure proper application of the policy as well as approve exceptions due to extraordinary circumstances.
