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, and turn in their proof of immunizations along with their application by March 1, 2020. Accepted students will have until April 17, 2020 to complete the Hepatitis C and TB screening which have a 90-day requirement. If a completed health requirements form is not received by this date, your application WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Priority will be given to students who submit their proof of immunizations by March 1, 2020.

All students must have a current seasonal flu shot. It is recommended that all applicants obtain their flu shot at this time, as it may be difficult to locate a facility who will administer the flu shot after the month of March.

The FAQ document consists of many questions which have been asked by applicants in the past. Please refer to this document, as it will contain many of the answers you are looking for. If you still have questions, please email us at hs-prepmedico@ucdavis.edu.

Please refer to these tips and guidelines when requesting a letter of recommendation. All letters of recommendation must be on official letterhead, in PDF format, and include the writer's signature.
