6.3.2 Vaccination and CPR Requirements

Students in all health care programs must comply with the "Vaccination/Immunization Requirements" . A COMPULSORY Immunization program exists at McGill for students in the Health Sciences Programs. Health Sciences students must start the immunization process as soon as they are accepted at McGill and must complete it well before they are permitted contact with patients. Entry into the McGill University Teaching Hospitals may be delayed if immunizations are incomplete. Proof of immunity must be written and signed by either a nurse or a physician. There are no exceptions to these requirements. Students who do not meet these requirements will be asked to withdraw.

Valid CPR certification level "C" (which includes adults and children's reanimation) is required prior to going into any of the clinical affiliation placements. Proof of valid certification must be presented no later than January 30th of the first year of the program to enable the student to enter the first clinical affiliation in March of that year. This certification must be maintained throughout the three years of the program.
