Health Professions Students
Health Professions Students - COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements Established by Clinical Settings, External Organizations.
Though SUNY Orange is no longer requiring students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination beginning in Summer 2023, each clinical partner agency sets its own requirements for students.
Students who choose not to comply with the clinical partner agency COVID-19 vaccination requirement may face serious delays toward degree completion. Because of the complexities of arranging clinical placements and the likely increase in clinical sites that require COVID-19 vaccination, College staff may not be able to rearrange clinical placements for students who refuse or are unable to meet a clinical agency’s vaccination requirement. Failure to meet clinical education outcomes will hinder students' ability to complete their degree program.
Successful completion of clinical-based learning is a requirement of all our health professions programs, mandated by accreditation and/or state or national certification or licensure boards. Maintaining the integrity of the programs we offer and having our students graduate from accredited programs provides them with the greatest opportunity for gainful employment and success. This is of vital importance to SUNY Orange and to our community.
Please contact the Department Chair of your Health Professions Program if you have any questions.
