The protection of the health of students is important so that they will be able to resist illness and not transmit disease to patients. To that end students are required to have certain immunizations and testing prior to the first day of classes.
PLEASE NOTE: All entering students are now required to complete all immunization and tuberculosis surveillance requirements prior to entry into their health sciences school/program.
For a complete list of the immunization requirements, please refer to: https://depts.washington.edu/chsweb/hsi. Nursing students are also required to complete a color vision test.
