Health Services oversees the clearance process for clinical participation for all health career students. Certain health requirements must be met to protect both you and your patient in the programs listed below. The required health documents are detailed below.
There are many urgent care centers locally for physical exams and fees vary. Please note that religious exemptions from required vaccinations are not acceptable in clinical settings, per NYS Health Department regulations (however, they are allowed for college attendance).
You must submit the following annually:
1. Reassessment Form and either:
2. Flu vaccine

The staff in Health Services wish you success in your chosen health career and are available to facilitate the process of clearance for clinical participation in any way we can. If you have further questions, please call us at 585-292-2018.
