Pre-Matriculation Health Requirements

All incoming students and residents are required to complete pre-matriculation health requirements and submit required paperwork via Patient Connect prior the start of Orientation.


  • A physical exam performed by your primary care physician
  • An Immunization & Physical Examination Report completed by your physician and submitted to Student Health Services via Patient Connect

It is highly recommended that students make an appointment for a physical exam as soon as possible after they have received their acceptance notification.  You may be required to complete a series of inoculations in the months leading up to Orientation in order to be compliant with University and Commonwealth of Massachusetts regulations.

The form, instructions on how to complete and submit the required information, and frequently asked questions can be found at
