Immunizations and Proof of Physical Examination

Based on CDC Guidelines, accepted students must provide proof of the following immunizations: Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis B Series, TB Screening (PPD), Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis (Tdap) and varicella. A medical history and examination must also be completed and submitted to Employee/ Student Health Services before registration. An annual PPD and Influenza vaccine will also be required of the student.

The UAMS Physician Assistant Program requires specific immunizations and tuberculosis (TB) screening to safeguard the health of PA students and protect patients and others from being infected with vaccine-preventable diseases or TB.  Immunizations and TB screening must be completed by the student prior to matriculation.

The requirements have been established according to the CDC Healthcare Personnel Vaccination Requirements.
