Physical Examination

Health programs require that students provide certification of good health by submission of a satisfactory physical examination, conducted by a physician or a registered nurse practitioner. The physical examination requires proof of current immunizations and must be submitted on the Physical Examination Report or Health Examination Report provided by the program staff (SAR 40 or SAR 40-A). Failure to submit the exam by the date specified by the health program coordinator will result in denial of access to clinical experiences, which may affect students' ability to achieve course objectives.

Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene Applicants

In addition to the physical examination requirement, all students accepted into the dental programs are required to have a complete dental examination certifying good oral health, free of dental caries and gum disease. This exam must be completed by a dentist within six months of being accepted in the program.
