The Health History Form that we sent you lists the MSU immunization requirements. You should have a health care provider document any immunizations that you have had, administer any immunizations that you need and sign the Health History form. You will also need to start your 2 step PPD no later than June 9, 2017.

6. Housing               

Most students live off campus in housing that they find through apartmentlist.com, newspaper ads, craigslist, or referrals.               

 

If you are interested in on campus housing, you should apply as early as possible. Only graduate or family on-campus housing is suitable for WWAMI students. Contact the Family and Graduate Housing Program at:  http://www.montana.edu/fgh/application.php to download an application. For other housing options contact the WWAMI office.

7. Immersion/Orientation               

All incoming students at all WWAMI sites are​ required to be at their sites and ready to attend Clinical Immersion & Orientation. Immersion will prepare students for the Foundations Phase of the curriculum by focusing on clinical skills practice. Throughout Clinical Immersion, incoming Hyalite at duskstudents will also participate in Orientation sessions aimed to familiarize students with the School of Medicine.                
Montana's Immersion will begin Monday, August 14th and will continue through September 1st. Our White Coat Ceremony will take on September 1st in the Strand Union Building, Ballroom A, on the MSU campus. We welcome all family, friends, and loved ones to take part in the ceremony so please plan travel accordingly. The first block, MCBD, will begin after the Labor day Holiday weekend on September 5th.                

 

8. Buying Books & Equipment               

Students need to have a laptop, or tablet, computer for use in class and for taking exams. The cost of a computer is not included in your budget until you purchase it and send the receipt to Diane Noecker, Financial Aid Director. 

Most textbooks are available in online format free of charge from UW. Check for information and links on the appropriate Canvas page for each upcoming block. 

 

9. Primary Care Practicum (PCP)             

 The Primary Care Practicum is a longitudinal clinical experience which matches students with preceptors in family medicine, internal medicine, OB/GYN, or pediatrics for the duration of Foundations of Clinical Medicine. Students will complete structured observations of clinicians and allied health professionals, evaluate patients and give oral case presentations in clinic, and to apply their nascent history taking and physical examination skills in a relevant clinical context. Students will participate in clinic every other Tuesday starting August 29th in the Foundations Phase.
