Health Professions Students
IMPORTANT - Many clinical sites require our students to provide proof of a flu vaccine
for the current season or a signed declination of flu vaccine form. Students are encouraged
to obtain the vaccine then send the documentation to the Wellness Center using our
secure online form. Or contact us to receive the declination form. This is required to maintain your
clinical clearance. You will be unable to attend clinical if the site you are assigned
to requires this. For more info about the flu and flu prevention please visit our
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.
Submitting a physical?
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.
As our staff is small please be patient and wait to hear from us. If you do not hear from us more than 10 business days after submitting your records, please email our office at email@example.com.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
