Safe Start

Vaccination Info

The spring 2021 semester began Feb. 1 and all students, except those that have opted for a fully remote class schedule, must comply with our random surveillance testing program. We are optimistic that with more widely available vaccines and advances in medical practice, we will be able to slowly open up spaces and activities. But for now, we must stay the course and continue to follow basic health and safety protocols: Wear a mask. Wash your hands often. Keep at least six feet of distance between you and other people.

School of Medicine Calendar

It is our intention, to the extent possible, to resume in-person instruction as the primary method of course delivery for the Fall 2021 semester and continue moving towards normal operations in all aspects of campus life.
