Program Expenses

Medical Exams, Tests and Immunizations

All interns must have a physical exam conducted within nine (9) months prior to the start of the internship and provide a written statement from the licensed health care professional attesting to the condition of the intern’s health.

Interns must also provide proof of the immunizations and tests that fulfill the requirements of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, the CDC guidelines, and the affiliation agreements between the University of Wisconsin-Stout and the supervised practice sites.

Required immunizations and tests include these and may also include others:

  • Two-step TB test to be completed within three (3) months prior to the start of the internship. The intern must provide documentation detailing both test dates, as well as the signed and dated 72-hour readings for both.
  • MMR
  • Tetanus
  • Chicken pox
  • Hepatitis B (entire series to be completed prior to beginning internship)
  • Flu shot to be administered when the current vaccine, covering internship year, is available

Transportation Costs

Interns are responsible for their own transportation. Costs of maintaining a vehicle and expenses from driving to sites are also the responsibility of the intern. Costs will vary depending on distance to site and could be substantial given the price of gas. Therefore, the cost of transportation should be factored into total cost of the program.

Housing Costs

Interns are responsible for arranging and paying for their housing costs. For information on University Housing, see the University Housing website. Interns may be scheduled for rotations anywhere within a 200-mile radius of UW-Stout.
