Clinical Requirements

There are several vaccinations that are required by many of the hospitals we use for clinical experiences.

  1. All of the childhood immunizations plus recent titers, Hepatitis B, TB Mantoux test, Flu vaccination, COVID vaccinations are required. Students must be fully vaccinated against COVID.  Fully vaccinated means at least two weeks have passed after the 2nd vaccination has been administered. Please note this is a requirement from the hospitals, and there are no exceptions.
  2. Medical requirements are those of the clinical agency and may change, and students will be required to meet any additional requirements. Clinical agencies may require copies of the student’s health record be provided to them before permitting the student to attend clinical.
