Staying Healthy When Performing Medical Procedures
As members of the healthcare workforce and future physicians it is important for Wayne State University medical students to protect and promote their own health and that of the individuals they will come in contact with during their professional and personal lives. Among those to be protected are students’ family members, colleagues, co-workers, and most importantly our patients. Please refer to the Health Information and Policies page for information on required vaccinations/evidence of immunity, annual TB screening, blood-borne pathogen infections, needlestick and other exposure to blood/blody fluids, respirator fit testing, annual influenza vaccination, and infection control/blood-borne pathogens training.
All medical students are required to have health insurance as a condition of their enrollment in the medical school. Following the lead of many other medical schools across the country, the medical school has negotiated a very comprehensive group health plan on behalf of our students and has made it mandatory at a very reasonable price. This policy, through Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan, is mandatory because we believe it to be the best value available in terms of the benefits package for the premium being charged. Please visit the Records and Registration website for details about plan options, waivers, and enrollment.
