*As students are expected to earn a total of 240 hours during each rotation block, any LECOM holiday time-off requested must be accounted for (no > total of 50 hrs/week) at the discretion of the preceptor/site.   This includes the New Year’s Day Holiday (Jan 1) which is not accounted for above since many preceptors would be unable to start a rotation on a holiday
