Health and Safety: Students are required to meet all Health and Safety requirements established by affiliate health care facilities and by the College. These requirements include annual training, immunizations, tuberculosis
screening, drug and alcohol testing, and criminal background check. Students will be advised of the requirements and timeline for completion upon acceptance into the program. It is the responsibility of the students to provide documentation
and maintain currency. Students who are not in compliance will be unable to attend clinical practicum. Please note, this drug screening may also check for prescription drugs that contain amphetamines, barbiturates, opioids, benzodiazepines
and marijuana. If you are taking any prescribed medication that may contain these drugs you will need to meet with the program director before completing the drug screen. All immunizations required by OHA for healthcare providers and our
clinical contracts will be mandatory, including Covid- 19 vaccination.
Orientation for accepted and alternate students – Two mandatory program orientations will be held for accepted students. One will be in late June and the other is generally the week before Fall term starts each year. The specific
dates will be provided to you if accepted to the program. Attendance is required, or the next eligible alternate will be given your assigned place in the program.
