Successful Completion of Background Check and Comprehensive Drug Screening Test

  • Prior to matriculation, students must successfully pass a national background check and a comprehensive drug screening via our vendor, CastleBranch.
  • Students will be required to complete a second national background check and comprehensive drug screen prior to the start of their clinical phase of training (students are responsible for any associated costs).
  • Students may be required to complete a third national background check and comprehensive drug screen prior to the start of their 3rd year (last semester) of the program (students are responsible for any associated costs).
  • A failed background check or drug screen may preclude participation in the didactic and clinical phases of training.
