Students need a confirmed placement letter in order to start clinical training. In order for the Office of Clinical Studies to send a confirmed placement letter, students need to have all mandatory health requirements completed, documented and cleared. The Office of Clinical Studies only accepts clearance from Susan Conway, RN, Director of Student Health Records. Students must send all documents by scanning into 1-3 PDF image files and emailing to the designated clinical health form email email@example.com. Students should keep the original documents; they will be required in the future for residency requirements. Fulfilling these requirements will satisfy public health and hospital regulations and is mandatory for all health care workers. Regulatory agencies have developed these regulations to protect the health of patients in the hospital as well as the health of other healthcare providers.
SGU health requirements have three parts:
Part I: HEALTH HISTORY
Students are required to complete and sign a current personal history form within six months prior to the start of clinical rotations.
Part II: PHYSICAL EXAM
Students must have a physical examination completed within six months prior to the start of their first clinical rotation. Our physical exam form needs to be filled out, dated and signed by your personal physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
Part III: TB SCREENING and IMMUNIZATION RECORD
