Vaccine Requirement for Students Rotating at VA Sites

The Veteran’s Administration will require all Health Professions Trainees to provide proof of vaccination using the VA Light Electronic Action Framework (LEAF) System.  Health Professions Trainees will be asked to individually enter their vaccination information into the LEAF System.  If you are currently doing a rotation at a VA site, you may be asked to upload your proof of vaccination in the next week.  If you will be doing a rotation at a VA site in the future, please be prepared to upload your proof of vaccination when you begin your rotation.

Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month  

Making your 4th year schedule can be difficult, but there are people who can help! You can meet with Career Advising and with people who have been in your shoes. 4th year students who applied to your specialty of interest, current residents, and physician mentors are great resources for scheduling advice! However, don’t stress too much about your schedule right now! You can always move it around up to 6 weeks before the start date…and almost everyone makes changes to their schedule as they develop interests over time and are in tune with when they’ll need breaks, more time for Step 2 studying, etc.
