Other Important Policies

Western has entered into agreement with its affiliated institutions to ensure that Tb, immunization, and workplace safety policies are enforced.  If Western does not have proof of Tb and immunization status then hospitals have the right to restrict students from all hospital-based learning situations.  This also applies if students fail to comply with other health and safety policies.  The student, therefore, will not meet learning objectives and the outcome will be a FAIL in all clinically based courses. Other academic sanctions may be imposed on a case-by-case basis.
