Health Insurance and Compliance
Boston University is very concerned about the health and wellness of our entire student community. To this end, the University requires that every incoming student have a physical examination by a licensed practitioner and be immunized against the following common communicable diseases: measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), tetanus, hepatitis-B and (bacterial) meningitis. In addition, clinical students who will see patients at Boston Medical Center (and other Boston hospitals) are required to have documentation of varicella immunity, a hepatitis B serum titer and a two step tuberculosis skin test. These requirements are indicated on the appropriate “Health History and Physical Examination Report”.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that all full-time undergraduate and graduate students, all full-time and part-time health science students, and any full-time or part-time international students submit proof of immunization.
The “Health History and Physical Examination Report” or “Health Form”, available on the Student Health Services website, outlines the requirements.
