The University of South Florida College of Medicine is unable to provide the vaccines, laboratory titers and/or physical exams required for starting your program. These immunizations, physical exams and/or laboratory tests must be completed prior to beginning your program. If you have any questions regarding the Communicable Disease Certification Process or you are not able to receive certain immunizations (i.e., they are contraindicated), please contact our office directly at (813) 974-3163 to discuss your situation. All required vaccines are readily available through your local Health Department, Urgent Care Centers or Walk In Clinics.
