As an Allied Health student, you will be required to successfully complete Directed Clinical Practice (DCP), clinically-based courses held in health care facilities. These facilities may require background checks, including fingerprinting and drug screening, as a condition of placement at the clinic. Refusal to submit to a background check, or failure to meet clearance criteria established by the health care facility, may prevent placement in DCP courses and thus, it may not be possible to successfully complete the program. Health care facilities also require adherence to strict standards of conduct. Facilities may refuse educational access to any person who does not adhere to the facility’s standards of safety, health, and ethical behavior. This may be cause for removal from the program.
You will also be required to complete a 10 panel drug screen, a physical exam, provide immunization records or titers verifying immunity (Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella, Hepatitis B, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) and Tuberculosis status prior to being placed at a clinical facility. Some programs may also require proof of Influenza immunization during flu season.
In addition to the cost of enrollment, you are responsible for the costs of all required immunizations and medical exams. All costs listed below are subject to change without notice and may vary by healthcare provider.
New student admission into the program will be contingent upon the satisfactory completion of the following:
The checklist must be completed by the deadline. Students with incomplete items by the deadline will forfeit their spot in the program due to ineligibility and must reapply to the program. The hospital affiliates have the right to reject student placement based on their own established policies regarding background and drug screen results, which do not necessarily reflect the policies of the district or school. If a hospital affiliate refuses student placement, the decision is final and the student will not be admitted to the program.
