CNHS Undergraduate Responsibilities and Requirements

There are some special elements associated with clinical education. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from clinical sites, and where relevant, the costs of housing for clinical experiences. Students may need to complete a criminal background check prior to clinical placement. Evidence of a criminal record may prevent students from being eligible for clinical placement, and/or professional licensure. All students must carry professional liability insurance during clinical rotations, and will be billed approximately $40 per year for this insurance. Students engaging in clinical education experiences must comply with required health clearances including testing, immunizations, and titers for certain infectious diseases (costs vary depending on students’ insurance). Applicants to the College’s clinical programs must realize there is always an element of risk through exposure to infectious disease. The University is not responsible for medical costs resulting from injury during clinical rotation, or during any other curricular activity, unless this injury is due to negligence by the University.
