Medical Campus Flu Clinics

October 11th, 2013 in General News

There will be joint MED/GMS/SDM/SPH flu clinics at the medical campus so all students on the medical campus will have an opportunity to get a flu shot. If your program and/or courses require working with patients or spending any time in the hospitals or clinics then you must obtain a sticker to be placed on your BU ID after the flu shot.  If you do not comply you will NOT be permitted in these areas unless you wear a mask.
Following are dates, times and locations.

  • Nov 4th  from 11:00 am- 3:00 pm  in Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov. 7th from  4:00 pm  -7:00 pm in  Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 14th   7:30 am-12:00 pm in   Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 18th from 10:00 am -1:50 pm  in  Rooms  L212/L214

 

    Please note the following:

    CHARGES

    • Flu shot is covered 100% for the students who have BU’s Aetna Student Health Insurance.
    • Students with other health insurances will be charged $30 that will be placed on the student’s account.  Student Health Services (SHS) will provide a receipt to submit to their insurance for repayment.

    STICKERS

    • All students that attend these clinics will have a sticker applied to their ID regardless of which school or program they are in.
    • Students that attend a clinic on the CRC campus or at SHS will need to self-identify that they are in need of a sticker. We will then be able to apply the sticker at that time.
    • Students that choose to get a flu shot outside of clinics offered by SHS will need to provide a medical record showing that they received the vaccine. This medical record will need to be turned in to SHS.
      • This can either be walked in to SHS, mailed in, faxed in (617-353-3557), or the student can present this information at one of our clinics. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THIS INFORMATION – it is protected health information.
      • Once documented, you can check with Dr. Hee-Young Park at the GMS office to obtain a sticker.

      Congratulations to BMFS student Jennifer Field: Recipient of the Ruth and Martin Levine Scholarship

      March 12th, 2013 in BMFS

      The Ruth and Martin Levine Scholarship in Graduate Medical Sciences is made possible by the generous donation of Ruth R. Levine, PhD. Dr. Levine was the first Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Sciences and a faculty member at BUSM for many years. Given her own life experiences her wish was to allocate “income to provide annual scholarship awards to one or more graduate students enrolled in the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, who have demonstrated excellent scholarship. Preference shall be given to female students who have reached their 30th birthday and are returning to academia after an interruption”.
