Aultman College Immunization Requirements
Aultman College encourages students to obtain immunizations as both a preventative measure and if applicable, to meet the requirements of our affiliating clinical agencies. Students must be current and up-to-date with all health requirements based on their program of study. Failure to meet these requirements could result in the inability of the student to attend a clinical experience.
Health Services administers the various required screenings and immunizations. They are located on the first floor in Aully's Roost. To schedule an appointment, call 330-363-9371.
