History and Physical Form

Students must provide evidence that all immunizations are either (1) complete; (2) started and on schedule; or (3) verified by titer. Failure to provide required documentation will result in the inability to attend the clinical portion of a course and ultimately failure in the course. Any clinical missed because of failure to turn in health requirement documentation will result in an “Unsatisfactory” evaluation for that day, and the clinical time CANNOT be made up.
