Wellness is critical to your success and experience as a student at KHSC-KansasCOM. It is important to us to promote a learning environment supportive of the development and maintenance of a healthy mind, body, and spirit. We want our students to choose and exhibit behaviors that promote physical and mental health, reduce risk of self-harm and burnout, and strengthen personal and professional relationships.
Through our Wellness site, we aim to empower students to balance and explore what wellness means to them. We believe wellness is an active and ongoing exploration of self with a goal of creating a healthy, fulfilling life and increasing success in school and beyond.
Immunization and Health Requirements
Students who project themselves as future health care professionals are obligated to protect their health and the health of their future patients. All matriculating students at KHSC-KansasCOM are required to be vaccinated in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immunization guidelines.
These guidelines change and are updated periodically, and applicants and students are expected to be knowledgeable regarding the current CDC guidelines for health care workers found on their website: www.cdc.gov. KHSC-KansasCOM students are responsible for maintaining a current and thoroughly documented official record of immunizations prior to and during enrollment.
Health Form for Matriculation
- Each entering student must submit a completed health form provided and approved by KHSC-KansasCOM prior to matriculation.
- Documentation of a negative Mantoux test (PPD) done within the past twelve months must be provided. Students may be required to provide evidence of chest x-ray results or other information certifying a noncontagious state.
- Students must provide documentation of immunization for COVID-19, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio (three doses), Rubella, Rubeola, Mumps (MMR-two doses), and Hepatitis B series, unless medically contraindicated. A titer for Hepatitis B, Rubella, Rubeola, Mumps, and Varicella must be completed by the end of year 1. If a negative result is detected this will be managed on an individual basis.
