Annual Health Screening
Prior to matriculation into the program students must have a health screening to prove they are in good health, free from communicable disease and hold current immunization status. This is to be completed by their physician and to include a health history, physical examination, immunization verification and laboratory verification of immunity to infectious diseases as indicated on the DPAS Student Health Record.
The health screening, completed immunization record and laboratory verification must be completed within three months of matriculation. It is the student’s responsibility to either send or fax the forms to the Cohen Student Health Center. A copy of the Student Health Record can be found at this link: DPAS Student Health Record
