Health Profile Requirements

There is NO required form that needs to be completed by the students doctor, and a physical is not required. Please keep in mind that while we do not require a physical examination, we still strongly encourage having one completed with your primary care provider prior to your start at Loyola. We advise you to make an appointment with them as soon as possible so that you can also receive any necessary vaccinations in order to ensure your health profile is completed by the required deadline.
