Frequently Asked Questions
1. How can I find out what rotations you have available?
Once you have a completed and processed application on file with us we will provide you with our current available rotation location(s). Specific preceptor information will not be released until the non-refundable deposit is paid in full.
2. When can I start my rotation?
Only when you have a complete and processed application on file and there is availability in the desired rotation. Fuse Me In has a dedicated staff that works diligently to ensure that you are placed ASAP alleviating any lag time.
3. I do not live in the U.S. and it is going to take me several weeks to get my immunization titers. Can I start my rotations anyway?
NO. It is against Fuse Me In policy for any student to rotate without current immunization records on file.
4. What is a 2 step PPD (TB) test, why do I need it and how often do I need to get it?
PPD stands for purified protein derivative, which is the solution used for the test. Alternative names you may hear the test called are tuberculin skin test, TB test and Mantoux test.
A medical professional places and reads a PPD and then repeats this process again within 90 days of the first PPD. Required by most sites. Needs to be done yearly. If it expires while you are in a rotation, you will be removed from your rotation. To avoid this situation, please get one done and update your Fuse Me In file every 10 months.
5. What if I have a history of positive PPD test results, am I still required to get a PPD test?
No. Please provide a copy of your current (within last 8 months) chest x-ray results.
6. Can I start my rotation without a Step 1 score?
Yes. A Step 1 score is not required to begin rotations. Please check with your school's requirements.
7. What is the cost?
As of January 1, 2019 our current rates are $400 weekly or $12.50 hourly. Please kindly note that modifying a confirmed clinical start date may incur a rescheduling fee. Fees are subject to change at any time.
8. How can I receive/confirm a start date?
Once all requested documents are on file you will be issued a digital invoice with a start date and non-refundable deposit due date. Once your non-refundable deposit is paid in full you will be provided with your rotation preceptor and their address(es).
9. What is your late fee policy?
If payment is not received in full by the date indicated on your invoice, you will be immediately removed from the rotation until full payment is received. Ultimately, students are fully responsible for any/all payment of dues.
10. What is your cancellation policy?
Clinical/clerkship rotations with Fuse Me In are in high demand and fill up quickly, therefore, we strictly enforce a 14 day cancellation policy. This means you must speak directly with a staff member and cancel the scheduled rotation 14 days BEFORE it is scheduled to begin. If you cancel after the 14 days, you will be charged a $400.00 USD cancellation fee. In the instance the student is a "no show", the full amount remains due for the rotation. Once a preceptors information has been released the deposit is non-refundable. Allowance for student substitution must be approved by the Fuse Me In staff.
11. Do you only work with medical students?
No. We currently work with medical, nurse practitioner, PA, and chiropractic students and graduates. Fuse Me In is constantly expanding and is looking to offer rotations for dental, occupational therapy, physical therapy and other health students and graduates.
