Many experiential learning sites require submission of a criminal background check, child abuse history check, FBI fingerprinting check, and/or urine drug screening prior to attending the site. It is the student's responsibility to obtain these checks through CastleBranch background check in a timely manner and to pay for any costs associated with such testing. Failure to obtain or pass these tests may preclude a student from attending experiential learning sites and thus successfully completing the requirements for graduation from the PharmD program.
It is also mandatory that all students be certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of adults, children and infants utilizing both one-person and two-person resuscitation techniques. CPR certification must be completed and documentation submitted prior to your P4 year. This is coordinated through the Office of Experiential Learning. CPR training sessions will be offered to students in the P1 and P3 year. Lack of documentation of CPR training will preclude your ability to begin your experiential learning rotations in the P3 and P4 year.
The Office of Experiential Learning has contracted with a company called CastleBranch, Inc. to house and track all immunization information, CPR, HIPAA, drug screenings and all background checks/clearances.
