Health Requirements

EVMS requires completion of the immunization requirements with supporting documentation of proof of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, polio and tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis. In addition, a two-step tuberculin skin test is required. If an accepted candidate has had a previous positive tuberculin skin test, they must provide a chest X-ray report from less than one year prior to the program start date, documentation of evaluation for preventative therapy from the treating physician, and a completed Tuberculosis Symptom Surveillance Questionnaire.

After an applicant has confirmed acceptance into the MD program, a designated health screening portal will be accessible for use.  No documentation should be sent directly to the Office of Occupational Health.  Failure to meet pre-matriculation health requirements in a timely manner may preclude a student from matriculating.
