All clinical centers and affiliated hospitals provide information about access to food and housing. Food and housing vary from site to site but remain the student’s responsibility. Advice information about hospitals’ housing, parking permits, meal tickets and similar local issues are provided by the hospital’s medical education coordinators who assist XUSOM students at clinical centers and affiliated hospitals. Departing students and the student coordinators at each hospital provide listings of available housing, which is helpful to the students. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from their hospital.
