Students who participate in an internship, rotation, observation, applied project, or other experiential learning opportunity with a clinical partner are required to comply with the site’s policies related to vaccinations for common communicable diseases. The majority of ASU’s clinical community partners require proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Students who are unable to be vaccinated for medical or religious reasons may be able to make arrangements for a reasonable accommodation, depending on the policies of the clinical site. Accommodations may be limited in number and may require additional safeguards such as testing, personal protective equipment, or alternative/limited duties.
Students who are concerned about their ability to complete a course or program requirement with a clinical partner due to their vaccination status should contact their instructor or program director to discuss the possibility of placement at another site or the process to apply for a reasonable accommodation. Alternative placements and reasonable accommodations are dependent on the availability and policies of clinical partners. Students who anticipate needs relating to vaccination requirements should contact their instructor or program director as soon as possible.
