Student Exposure Protocol
In the event of injury or exposure to blood, body fluids, or other infectious materials while functioning in the role of medical student, please follow the following protocol:
At the KU Wichita Adult Medicine clinic during office hours, report immediately to the Medical Director. If you have questions, call the KU Adult Medicine clinic at 316-293-2622. If you are at any other facility, follow facility protocol.
These procedures are consistent with Center for Disease Control guidelines and the exposure protocol used for all KUSM-W faculty, staff, and residents.
Address KUSM-W campus questions to Academic and Student Affairs 316-293-2603.
All enrolled medical students with a communicable disease that may affect the health and safety of others MUST advise Student Health Services at the KU Wichita Adult Medicine clinic. Medical students may be required to provide medical records or may be evaluated in person. Decisions about risk the student poses to the health and safety of others at the medical school and area hospitals will be the responsibility of the Student Health Center Staff. Their decisions will be the final determinate of the level of participation in school activities. All reasonable consideration will be given in order to determine if reasonable accommodations can be made to allow a student to participate in a normal course of study without risk to him/herself or to others.
