Policy For Establishing The Health Status of MSAT Students

Prior to being permitted to begin the clinical experience assignments the names of athletic training students involved in the clinical aspect of the Athletic Training Professional Program will be submitted to University Health Service. A review of the student’s medical record for current immunizations will be verified. Documentation that verifies the completion of Central’s health form and that signifies that the student meets the health requirements for the program will be kept in the student's academic file. Those students whose immunizations are missing or not current will be required to obtain the necessary immunizations prior to being permitted to continue in the clinical component of the Athletic Training Professional Program.

Health Policy For Infective Illness & Contact With Patients/Clients

Athletic Training students who develop signs or symptoms of an infectious illness should make an appointment with University Health Service or with their personal physician for evaluation and diagnosis. A note from the physician or from health services should be obtained if the student is advised to avoid contact with patients/clients. Should an athletic training student be notified that they were exposed to an infectious illness during a clinical experience, the policies and medical processes of the affiliated site will be incorporated.
