Student Health Clearance Policy

The UMass Chan Medical School requires all students admitted to the T.H. Chan School of Medicine, the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences or the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing to complete the Student Health Clearance process prior to matriculation. This policy was developed to decrease risk of transmission of potential infectious agents, and it is part of each student’s professional responsibility to maintain this clearance throughout his/her educational experience at UMass Chan.

Consequences of Non-compliance

Entering students: Student health clearance is mandatory and forms must be completed and submitted prior to the start of classes. Non-compliance will result in revocation of the offer of admission.

Active students: Student health clearance is required for attendance at classes and participation in clinical or laboratory activities. Non-compliance will result in suspension of registration and may result in a report of professionalism concerns and consequences up to and including dismissal by UMASS Chan Medical School.  If a student is notified by SHS that health clearance records are incomplete, they must contact SHS immediately for assistance in resolving the problem.  SHS will notify students periodically about health updates that are required.  Students should be checking their UMASS Chan Medical School email regularly and respond promptly to SHS.  SHS is required to report non-compliant students to UMASS Chan Medical School designee if the student fails to respond or address health compliance related requirements.
