Required Documentation After Admittance to the PTA Program

The following immunizations and documentation are  required by October 31st and they will need to be maintained throughout the program using our immunization tracker within Iplace.

  • Tdap (within the last 10 years)
  • MMR (vaccination dates (2) or positive titers)
  • Hepatitis B (vaccination dates (3) or positive titer)
  • Varicella/Chicken pox (vaccination dates (2) or positive titer)
  • Current copy of your American Heart Association CPR/BLS for Healthcare Providers card
  • Through the same company as the background check, you will be required to obtain a 10-Panel Drug Test
  • Medical Exam Form signed by a Physician 

Since the following are required annually, we encourage that these be completed in December so they remain valid for both clinical internships.  Documentation will be  required by the last day of Fall semester.

  • Annual verification of a negative TB/PPD skin test report (a positive result requires a clear chest x-ray report)
  • Annual flu vaccine (for Fall and Winter semesters)

IPlace Immunization Tracker
