Health Professions Students
Attention Health Professions Students: Many clinical sites require our students to provide proof of a flu vaccine for the current season. Check with
your instructor to see if this applies to you. If so, obtain the vaccine then send
the documentation to the Wellness Center using our online portal by October 1. This is required to maintain your clinical clearance. Otherwise you
will be unable to attend clinical. For more info about the flu and flu prevention
please visit our homepage.
Welcome to the Health Professions!
Here you will find helpful information as you navigate the process of completing and submitting your medical requirements to obtain your clinical clearance, aka "The Golden Ticket."
Submitting a physical?
Please understand that due to our working remotely the process for collecting and processing physicals is more complicated than in the past. All physicals must be MAILED to the Wellness Center (see instructions below). A nurse visits the college on Mondays only to retrieve physicals from our mailbox. When your physical is received, she will send an email to your SUNY Orange account that we have it. Once your documents have been reviewed and deemed compliant with New York State requirements, the nurse will issue you an official clearance form which will be emailed to your SUNY Orange email account. This may take anywhere from one to two weeks after your documents are received.
If your documents are incomplete or do not meet the New York State requirements, you will be contacted via email.
If you do not hear from us more than 14 business days after submitting your records, please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
