Health Requirements

​Entrance Health Requirements

It is a requirement of the School of Medicine that all incoming students fulfill health requirements PRIOR to entering the university. Students must sign the School of Medicine Admission Health Requirements form and bring to a health care provider for completion. Requirements include proof of Tdap (tetunus, diphteria, and pertussis) vaccination within the past 10 years, proof of the Hepatis B 3 shot vaccine series, and positive titers for measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, and Hepatitis B. Tuberculosis screening must be performed within 6 months of school entry, preferably a Quantiferon blood test. All health requirements must be fulfilled prior to clinical rotations. The appropriate forms and detailed information about health requirements are sent to new students well in advance of the deadline.
