Immunization Requirements



The information listed below is to assist incoming pharmacy students with completing and submitting the required immunization records to Belmont University and the College of Pharmacy.  Some College of Pharmacy requirements differ from the University’s, many of these are due to requirements of clinical training sites used in the Pharmacy Practice Experience sequence. 

All pharmacy students must comply with the exact requirement set forth below.  Once submitted, the Office of Experiential Education will retain a copy of each student’s record to verify health and immunization compliance and to satisfy any audit requests from site administrators.  All students are required to retain a copy of any submitted documentation for their own personal records as well.  These requirements are not only for the health and safety of our students but also for the safety of the patients they will be serving outside of the University.

REQUIRED STEPS
Students must complete the following steps to properly submit health record information:

          •    Complete the Belmont University Online Medical History and Immunization Form
                through your Belmont student portal.

          •    Complete a 2 – Step TB Skin Test with your healthcare provider using the
                2 - Step Skin Test Form.  Arrangements can be made with Belmont University
                Health Services to complete this test. A simple one step test is not acceptable.

          •    Submit a photocopy of your personal health insurance card

          •    Submit copies of all three documents above to the College of Pharmacy Office of
               
Experiential Education at the address below.  This submission is required in
                addition to documentation required by the office of Health Services. Only the
                completed immunization section - not medical history - from the online form is
                required and can be printed separately for submission.  Send to:

                         Belmont University College of Pharmacy
                         Office of Experiential Education
                        1900 Belmont Boulevard
                         Nashville, TN 37212-3757


DUE DATES

All documents must be submitted by August 20.  Failure to have a COMPLETE health record on file in the Office of Experiential Education will result in an inability to take the Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience I course, which is mandatory for academic progression.
