Students are admitted through the School of Medicine and the matriculation process is performed by the Registrar's Office. Walk-In Registration for new students is conducted the month of July.
All students registering for courses at the University of Massachusetts Medical School must be positively identified. In order to establish positive identification, students must present a government issued picture ID and verification of social security number (i.e. social security card, W-2, etc.).
The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) requires all incoming students to complete the Student Health Clearance process prior to matriculation. This policy was developed to decrease risk of transmission of potential infectious agents. It is also required by Massachusetts Law.
It is each student's professional responsibility to maintain this clearance throughout his/her educational experience at UMMS. All clinical sites within UMMS and outside of UMMS require documentation of medical clearance prior to starting any clinical educational experience. Student Health Services (SHS) is responsible for periodic tracking of health clearances for all students and will notify students who need updated clearance information via email.
Any incoming student who fails to comply with SHS requests to complete the clearance process by the first day of class will be reported to the Associate Dean of Student Affairs and the Registrar's Office for further action including suspension of registration which would result in being withheld from classes and all clinical educational experiences.
Forms that must be completed can be downloaded from the Student Health Services (SHS) website at http://umassmed.edu/studenthealth/. For additional information, please call (508) 334-8464.
