Pre-Clearance Information and Forms

Pre-Clearance Process:
Students are responsible for making an appointment at a Bayshore clinic in order to be cleared prior to starting their clinical placements. This pre-clearance only needs to be done once per year - for most students, this takes place before they enter the fall semester. See appointment deadline dates below for details.

Please read the BAYSHORE Pre-clearance Process information sheet that contains detailed instructions including contact information to make appointments for Bayshore. 

Students are also responsible to download and complete the non-medical forms for their Bayshore appointment. The link to the non-medical forms is provided below.

Students will bring all of their original completed requirements / documents (immunizations, police clearance, etc.) to their Bayshore appointment. The Bayshore nurse will review the requirements and documents, and then will let the student know whether they are "cleared" to go to clinical or "not cleared".  If the student is "not cleared", this means that they have something missing and/or incomplete, and the student will have to make one or more additional appointments until they are "cleared" for clinical. 

Students will be charged a fee for each appointment. This is why it is important that students have all required documentation ready for their first appointment.
