Rehabilitation Services


Welcome to Vanderbilt University Medical Center's student webpage. Critical information that you will need to know regarding your upcoming clinical affiliations can be found on this site. There are five (7) forms that you are required to fill out and fax to us eight (8) weeks before the start date of your clinical. These include: the student health screening form, the computer access information form, the student data form, the confidentiality agreement form and the "Do you have all your paperwork complete" form. We need to receive these forms at least 8 weeks prior to your clinical start date or your clinical will be delayed or cancelled. For the sake of patient safety, you will not be allowed to have any patient contact until these forms have been processed.  Vanderbilt also requires students to have proof of having flu shot. The forms are under the appropriate links below and can be downloaded and printed out by you at home.  Please scan and email the forms to appropriate area, which you will access by clicking on links below.

After you have been cleared to start your clinical, you will receive an email from Vanderbilt.  Please follow the instructions in this email carefully, it will guide you through setting up your computer access.  BRING the user ID and password you set up with you on the first day, as you will need it the first day you start your clinical.  It is very important that you remember your PASSWORD and VUNET ID and have it the first day!  There is also some general information available to you regarding parking, dress code, and clinical objectives on this webpage. If you are looking for some housing options, please contact the clinical coordinator for your clinical and they can assist you further with this. We look forward to working with you on your clinical here at Vanderbilt. Thank you for choosing us to continue your education.
