As part of your academic program, students participate in an internship and final project. With any of these activities, there is a required background check, drug screen and proof of immunizations.
If you are a PSJH and partner organization caregiver, the background check and drug screen will be waived for you as long as you do not have a break in your academic program (i.e. take a semester off) and you stay employed with PSJH or partner organizations.
Immunizations will also be waived as long as your internship and final project occur in a non-clinical department and you do not have any contact with patients, clients or clinical populations.
If your internship and/or final project occurs in a clinical department, you will be required to submit proof of immunizations to CastleBranch (a third party provider of background screening, drug testing, and compliance management services). The University of Providence will provide you with a link to complete this requirement. Proof of these immunizations can include 1) already documented immunizations that you upload to CastleBranch 2) Complete your immunizations through your local employee health department that you upload to CastelBranch 3) complete the immunizations using CastleBranch documents/local lab.
Your internship & final project topic/location will need to be determined within the first 8 months of the program so you have time, if needed, to receive the appropriate immunizations.
