"Who says college students never go to class? For one George Washington University course, it was the professor who didn’t show up.
Now, professor Venetia Orcutt is resigning from her position as chair of GWU’s physician assistant department following repeated complaints that she never showed up to teach her two courses.
Orcutt didn’t let her bad attendance affect her students’ grades, though — she gave all students enrolled in her “Evidence Based Medicine” courses As in 2010.
The course is required for all pre-med students, who (thankfully, considering they could operate on us someday) were angry about not not receiving proper instruction in spite of the high letter grades.
GWU has awarded Orcutt’s students credit for taking the class and is also giving them refunds."
