DGSOM requires that all incoming students obtain health clearance from the UCLA Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center for personal protection and community health reasons. 

The health clearance requirements can be found on the Ashe Center's website.

Medical Student Requirements

In addition, all students must be monitored for tuberculosis annually during all years. A TB blood test (T-spot or QuantiFERON) is required. If the result is positive, proof of a negative chest x-ray is required.

Students are also expected to receive the seasonal influenza vaccine as this is a requirement for our clinical sites.
