The prologue also includes lots of opportunities to interact with classmates and faculty, and helps in building personal and professional networks.

Please note that students who do not sign up with Complio or do not fulfill their onboarding requirements will not be able to participate in the rotation optimization process or in their assigned rotation(s). Given that it is difficult to obtain rotations in today’s highly concentrated and competitive market, we will utilize the rotations of non-compliant students by offering them to those students who are compliant and needing a rotation. Please refer to the Experiential Education Manual for more information on this policy.
We ask that you utilize the instructional videos provided within Complio, as well as the Get Help tab to submit your questions via their ticket system. They will be your best resource for answering your questions about this service. Thank you for all your cooperation.
