Immunization and Certification Requirements

The University of Colorado mandates all students in health care professions, whose training includes clinical settings and patient contact, complete standard immunization requirements upon admission and prior to rotations. The sections below provide more information about when North American-Trained PharmD (NTPD) and International-Trained PharmD (ITPD) students should submit their immunization and certification requirements. Students can download the immunization and certification requirements document​​ to learn more about the items to complete.

  • New Students - Students will have assignments throughout their didactic coursework, which may require them to interact with patients. As such, newly admitted and reinstated students will submit their immunization and certification requirements by the deadlines as outlined below. Students who do not meet this deadline will have an administrative hold placed on their account. 
    • ITPD Students - Students will complete all the requirements before starting their Live Summer Session I.
    • NTPD Students - Students admitted for the 2016 spring semester will have six weeks from the start of the spring semester to submit their requirement. The deadline for NTPD students admitted for the 2016 spring semester is Tuesday, March 1.

  • Returning Students - Most rotation sites now require the DDP Office to verify students have completed all their immunization and certification requirements several months prior to the start of a rotation and these requirements must remain up-to-date throughout the rotation. Therefore, students will update their requirements by the following deadlines: 
    • November 1 - For students beginning rotations in the spring semester
    • March 1 - For students beginning rotations in the summer semester
    • August 1 - For students beginning rotations in the fall semester

    • The Rotation Prep - Immunization and Certification Requirements Deadlines policy outlines the deadlines as listed above the consequences for missing any of the deadlines.
