New Students

Welcome to Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (WUSM). Student Health Services (SHS) will help students achieve optimal health as they pursue academic success. In order to accomplish those goals, SHS needs students to complete pre-matriculation requirements. All incoming students to WUSM are required to meet certain entrance health requirements. These entrance requirements include proof of immunity to certain communicable diseases, in accordance with immunization guidelines, and a physical within one year of matriculation. These requirements are based on CDC recommendations and requirements of the major WUSM-affiliated teaching hospitals.

The information is required for participation in the clinical programs. Incomplete information will result in a delay in a student’s ability to register for classes. The student alone is responsible for insuring that all these forms are complete and current. A copy of all material including updates must be kept by each student at all times. Students should provide updates, additions, and/or changes as they occur or as requested.

We look forward to working with each student during their time here.
