Academic Calendar (Pre-Clerkship Phase)

*** Please note that dates shown here may be subject to change. *** 

Last updated @ 4:00 pm on 5/10/2022 

NOTE: The listing below shows institutional holidays and winter and spring breaks during the pre-clerkship phase of Einstein's curriculum when sessions are not held. We also list other religious and cultural Holy Days that we know many students celebrate/observe. We make every effort to minimize required sessions on those days, but this is not always possible. Students who celebrate/observe any of these Holy Days, or others that might not be shown, should contact the appropriate course director as far in advance as possible and request to be excused from the required session. The course director might require you to complete an alternative assignment.
