Health Record Requirements
Immunizations and other required health information are listed on the West Liberty University Student Health Service Confidential Mandatory Health Form. Prior to the first clinical experience, each student must have a Student Health Record completed by his/her personal physician. If the student leaves the Program or returns to the Program after a leave relating to illness or injury, additional examinations may be required.
2. Annual Tuberculosis Testing and Follow-up Policy
- All students must have a yearly PPD prior to the beginning of clinical experiences. The results must be verified by the student’s clinical faculty during clinical orientation.
- Any student who has had a positive PPD in the past must have a chest x-ray prior to the initial clinical experience. A student who has a negative chest x-ray following a positive PPD will not be required to have the chest x-ray repeated unless there is an intervening exposure to a person with active tuberculosis or the student exhibits symptoms that may suggest tuberculosis.
- A student who has an initial positive PPD must be seen by a personal physician or health care agency that will follow the latest protocol by the CDC. The student cannot participate in clinical experiences until the physician verifies that the protocol has been completed.
