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 – Due within six weeks of the start of the first semester enrolled
- Students will have assignments throughout their didactic coursework, which may require them to interact with patients. Therefore, newly admitted students will submit their immunization and certification requirements and complete additional School of Pharmacy administrative requirements within six (6) weeks of the start of the student’s first semester enrolled in the NTPD or ITPD Program or as identified by the DDP Office. Otherwise, the DDP Office will place an administrative hold on this student’s account, which will prevent the student from enrolling in courses in the upcoming semester.
- Returning Students – Due one semester prior to starting any rotations
- Most rotation sites now require the DDP Office to verify students have completed all their immunization and certification requirements one to two months prior to the start of a rotation and these requirements must remain up-to-date throughout the rotation. A rotation start date will be delayed for all students who do not submit all their immunization and certification requirements. All students are responsible for checking state-by-state requirements before starting any rotation. In addition, rotation sites may require students to complete additional requirements, which will need to be finished prior to the start of the rotation. Students should read through the Rotation Prep - Immunization and Certification Requirements Deadlines policy to learn more about when they should upload their requirements.
