Immunizations are extremely important for College of Osteopathic Medicine students during medical school and as future health care providers. Much of what you do in the health care setting will come under federal Occupational Safety and Health Act guidelines. Certain immunizations are required of all health care workers by this and other regulators.

All students must be up to date with vaccinations and titers as determined by the University Physician throughout their tenure at the college.

Students that fail to become compliant by the deadline will be suspended from participation as a College of Osteopathic Medicine student until such time as the student becomes compliant.

See Instructions for Completing the Healthcare Student Immunization Record (pdf).
