All EMS students of Butler Community College must satisfy clinical requirements by the end of the fifth week of class. It is recommended that students submit the Immunization Record and the Health Record as soon as possible after enrolling. This provides time for the records to be evaluated for completeness.
Contracts between Butler and clinical agencies and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Hospital Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) guide these requirements. Students who do not meet these requirements will be dropped from the course.
