Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Students are admitted through the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The matriculation process for new students is conducted during the summer.

All students registering for courses at the UMass Chan Medical School must be positively identified. In order to establish positive identification, students must present a government issued picture ID and verification of social security number (i.e. social security card, W-2).

The UMass Chan Medical School requires all students admitted to the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to complete the Student Health Clearance process prior to matriculation. This policy was developed to decrease risk of transmission of potential infectious agents. It is part of each student’s professional responsibility to maintain this clearance throughout his/her educational experience at UMass Chan.

All clinical sites within UMass Chan and outside of UMass Chan require documentation of medical clearance prior to starting any clinical educational experience. Student Health Services (SHS) is responsible for tracking this clearance process for all students and notifying students who need updated clearance information via email.

Any student who fails to comply with SHS requests to complete the clearance process by the first day of class will be reported to the Dean of the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Registrar’s Office for further action including suspension of registration.  Suspension of registration would result in being withheld from all classes and laboratory work.

Forms that must be completed can be downloaded from the Student Health Services (SHS) website at For additional information, please call (508) 334-8464.
