Student Clinical & Observation Requirements

Hendrick Health welcomes many types of students and observers to its facility. Hendrick has policies in place to protect its students, employees, and patients. These policies include the following requirements for students and observers who must be at least 17 years of age:

  • Criminal background check with company whom Hendrick Health designates
  • Urine drug screening
  • Immunization history
  • Flu vaccine (during flu season)
  • Tuberculin skin test

Please do not begin any of these processes until you have been contacted by a Hendrick Department of Education staff member. Hendrick does not perform screenings, nor does it provide reimbursement for any costs associated with the above requirements. Placement is dependent upon availability of Hendrick employees and associated licensed independent practitioners.

In order for students to receive school credit during their time at Hendrick, an affiliation agreement between Hendrick and the learning institution must be in place prior to meeting the above requirements. If a current agreement is not in place, one can potentially be generated by Hendrick. This legal process may take several months to complete. If you have questions/concerns regarding an affiliation agreement, please state in the comments section of the online request form.

*Current Hendrick Health employees completed these requirements upon hire, but they are still required to complete the Application for Clinical Observation form below and must have completed annual mandatory Joint Commission training.
