Health Requirements for Clinical Rotation

Students need a confirmed placement letter in order to start clinical training. In order for the Office of Clinical Education Operations to send a confirmed placement letter, students need to have all mandatory health requirements completed, documented and cleared. Your health form and any applicable documents must be uploaded through the Student Health Records Portal (SHRP). Once logged in, please choose “Upload File”, and follow the prompts to upload your documentation. Please ensure your health/medical records (this includes any corresponding lab results) are in one single PDF document. We are unable to take multiple PDF documents and documents may be rejected if submitted separately. You can find further guidance on how to merge documents, here: How to Merge Documents into a single PDF. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Student Health Records at 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:


Students are required to complete and sign a current personal history form within six months prior to the start of clinical rotations.


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.
