Required Background Checks

The UT Health Science Center requires all matriculating students to undergo a Criminal Background Check (CBC) to enhance patient safety and protection. This requirement was established by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and endorsed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). In accordance with these requirements, each student must be able to assure hospitals and clinical sites that he or she has been cleared through the CBC. The CBC must be completed no later than July 30, prior to matriculation.
