Any student traveling abroad for a clinical elective rotation must schedule a time to meet with the Director of Student Programs and will be required to:
- Complete emergency contact forms and access Medex cards prior to leaving for their trip
- Register their travel on-line here and send a copy of their registration to the director of student programs at firstname.lastname@example.org to be used for emergency purposes only
- Contact the director of student health, Jim Perlotto, MD, at Yale Health Plan to review immunization requirements and to receive a prescription for post exposure medications to be used in case of a blood or body fluid exposure and fill the prescription prior to departure.
More information on preparations for international travel and traveling safely can be found on the Yale and the World website.
