Important Vaccination Information for Students Enrolled in Health-Related Programs
Vaccinations are not required to enroll in FTCC health-related programs. However, if you are UNVACCINATED, it is UNLIKELY that you will successfully complete a health-related program. Most health programs require a clinical rotation with an affiliated healthcare provider and most, if not all, providers require proof of vaccination to participate in the clinical rotation. If you have not received the COVID-19 vaccination, please discuss your vaccination status with program leaders prior to enrollment and consider whether you should enroll in another field of study.
