Communicable Disease Policy

Communicable Diseases

As a student, you may be exposed to various communicable diseases during your clinical assignments. If you contract one of these diseases, regardless of the source, contact your preceptor and Clinical Education Coordinator and request permission to not attend your clinical experience until the symptoms are reduced.

Please verify your illness with a physician’s note.

Communicable diseases include but are not limited to:

*Influenza *Mononucleosis *Strep Throat
*Common Cold *Conjunctivitis *Bronchitis

Although you may be excused from your clinical assignment, you may still be required to complete clinical experience duties/assignments once you recover from your illness to compensate for the time missed. Please discuss with your Preceptor if you will need to make up missed time and confirm with the Clinical Coordinator.
