Our clinical agencies now require all faculty and students to undergo a physical exam to provide evidence that the student is free from evidence of contagious disease and not a health hazard to patients in various settings. You are to provide your health care provider (MD, DO, NP, PA) with the Physical Attestation Form for them to sign attesting that you have had a physical exam and that the provider has had an opportunity to identify whether or not you meet the Safety & Technical Standards. Please use the Safety & Technical Standards form provided to discuss with your health care provider.
