The UC Davis School of Medicine and the Permanente Medical Group requires that all active students remain current with the School’s required health immunizations for personal protection and community health reasons.

We highly encourage all applicants to ensure their immunizations are up-to-date, as accepted students will be required to provide proof of immunizations on April 17, 2020. If a completed health requirements form is not received by this date, your application WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
