Health Science programs are required by the state of Florida and national accrediting bodies to provide instruction in clinical healthcare settings. While Broward College does not require a COVID-19 or Flu vaccination, these clinical facilities set the compliance rules (i.e. immunizations, drug screenings, and fitness for duty) that students must meet to be eligible for instruction at these sites. Failure to maintain compliance with clinical facility requirements, (COVID-19 vaccination, Flu vaccination or any other required immunization or screening), will impact your ability to progress and complete the Physical Therapist Assistant Program. If you have any questions about these requirements, please speak to your admissions counselor.
