COVID Related Items for Program Participation

Due to Federal CMS mandates at our many healthcare partner facilities, full COVID vaccination is preferred. Many healthcare employers throughout the region require covid vaccination for all employees and students, however, some are allowing exemptions.

Students will visit many healthcare sites and they must be able to work with patients/residents in every facility they may be assigned to in order to meet program guidelines. We know that covid vaccination is a very personal decision. These requirements and exemptions may change as Federal CMS mandates and local requirements change.

Our program follows all policies of our host facilities. This includes all vaccinations, flu shots, TB tests, masking, covid testing, etc. Policies may change by facility or by local, state, or federal mandates.
