INTERNSHIP CALENDAR

Acceptance to the NYDDI internships occurs twice each year. One rotation begins in January and ends in August. A second set of rotations begins in May and ends in December. Orientations are scheduled days before rotations begin. Immediately following Orientation, you may begin your first rotation.

Interns are permitted up to a combined three days off as either religious holiday observance, personal, or sick days during the program. Requested days off should be made one week in advance with your preceptor. Interns are required to contact NYDDI and their preceptor when they will not be at their rotation. Time missed must to be made up, generally at the end of the rotation.

Note: Interns may be required to work on legal holidays, especially if working during shift coverage assignments. Arrangements must be made with your preceptor in advance of scheduling.

*Note: NYDDI builds into the 8-month program a one week vacation period during the last week of December and near July 4th. Other than the scheduled week interns may not take other time off. If an intern wants to swap the holiday vacation with another vacation, it must first be approved.

The intern schedule should model their preceptor’s schedule. The ideal rotation is Monday to Friday for 8 hours a day. We count 7.5 hours of work time and 30 minutes for lunch totaling an 8 hour day.

NYDDI is closed on legal holidays, therefore interns are not required to work on those days unless they choose.
