Student Health Policy

Students are responsible for their own health care and incurred costs. When students become ill or injured while in class or in the clinical area, they are to report to the instructor to assist in arrangements for patient care. The Clinical Education Coordinator of the site will always be notified of any illness or injury. The hospital emergency room is designed to care for true emergencies, NOT colds, sore throats, etc. Students are responsible for their own medical bills. Students will be expected to provide proof of health insurance or carry the Vermont Technical Colleges student health insurance policy.

The Director of Clinical Education may request a physical examination by a physician of the student's choice if this seems necessary. For the protection of the student, the patient, or other students, any exposure to infectious disease must be reported to the Clinical Education Coordinator.
