Student Health Clearance Policy and Resources

The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) requires all students admitted to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to complete the Student Health Clearance process prior to matriculation. This policy was developed to decrease risk of transmission of potential infectious agents, and it is part of each student’s professional responsibility to maintain this clearance throughout his/her educational experience at UMMS. Student Health Services (SHS) is responsible for tracking this clearance process for all students and notifying students who need updated clearance information.

Any student who fails to comply with SHS requests to complete the clearance process by the first day of class will be reported to the Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Registrars Office for further action including suspension of registration which would result in being withheld from all classes and laboratory work.

Forms can be downloaded from the student health website:
