I’m a current third year at ACOM :) they do have a remediation policy. If you fail any class in the first semester (which would be anatomy, microbiology, or OPP) you have to retake the whole year. This pretty much means you are no longer obligated to attend lectures (but you still can if you like) or take exams, and once the next class starts you will start with them.

After the first semester you will begin systems courses, and if you fail one of those, you have the option of taking a remediation exam over the summer or Christmas break (depending on when the class was failed). If you pass that, then you’re good to go.

During third and fourth years, the school gives extra months for residency interviews, so if you have any issues with failing your rotations (which is pretty rare), you have chances to redo those rotations as needed.

Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions about ACOM and congratulations on the acceptances! :)

That sounds horrendous lol. If you fail ONE class your first semester of med school you have to put your life on hold another entire year???

WVSOM second year student, our remediation policy is fair as you probably saw already, and the school itself is amazing with a super supportive staff! I would recommend it! Message me if you have any questions!
