Complete Health Records Information
Most of our students are working in the clinical setting their first year at Jefferson. Due to close patient access in the healthcare setting, students are required to have documentation of immunizations, CPR training, and a recent physical exam.
You must have your Health History Packet completed before you can start your clinical rotations. The Health History Packet will be mailed to you once you submit your deposit. Don't delay filling out this important paperwork.
If you ever need information released from your student health record to another entity, you will need to complete a Medical Records Release Form (click here for the form).
New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is a very important part of your first year at Jefferson. Orientation will help you transition into College and is what you need to start your year off right.
