TRUST Scholar Compliance

TRUST Scholar compliance

University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM) TRUST Scholar Compliance Requirements must be completed by June 15, 2020*.

COVID 19 advisory: Due to the COVID 19 travel restrictions, social distancing measures, and clinic closures, we will suspend the deadline until further notice for the immunizations requirements only. Students are still expected to complete all online requirements by the June 15th deadline.

TRUST scholars will be required to have a compliant status before they may participate in their TRUST First Summer Experience (FSE).

*If extenuating circumstances apply and you are unable to complete the online requirements by June 15th, please contact lbellis@uw.edu. Deadline extensions will not be considered unless sufficient notice is given and extenuating circumstances apply. 

Overview: In preparation for your TRUST First Summer Experience, there are a number of administrative tasks you'll need to take care of. These are listed below, follow the links for detailed instructions.

Gather immunizations records and obtain needed vaccines and titers. If obtaining vaccines and titers will put you or others at risk for contracting COVID 19, please wait until it is safe for you to access these services in your community. Note: the 2-step PPD can take a minimum of 10-14 days to complete. See full instructions under the immunizations section below.

Immunization documentation

A UW NetID and email account are required.

Note: The 2-step purified protein derivative (PPD) take a minimum of 10-14 days to complete.

Students submit their immunization and test result documentation to a web-based system called CastleBranch (CB). We will send you a separate email with instructions for how to create an account with CB. You can then begin submitting documentation for each vaccine requirement. 

Please follow these steps to prepare for document submission to CB.

If you have questions about the immunization requirements please visit the Health Sciences Immunizations Program (HSIP) website or contact HSIP at myshots@uw.edu.

The Tuberculosis testing requirement may be satisfied with either a two-step PPD or a single IGRA blood test. A two-step PPD consists of two PPDs (tuberculin skin tests) placed within one to three weeks of each other. At a minimum it takes 10 days to receive the results of the two-step PPD and four visits to a provider to have your PPDs placed and read.

If you are PPD positive please refer to the HSIP website (above) for instructions.

If your hepatitis B or varicella vaccine series are "in process", you will be considered compliant as long as you adhere to your vaccine schedule.

Immunization compliance is determined by CB and HSIP, not by the UWSOM. CB will send us weekly reports on student compliance status.

The UWSOM Compliance Office does not process or interpret student health records and we cannot advise students about the requirements. For questions about immunizations, contact HSIP directly via email at myshots@uw.edu or by phone 206-616-9074 (vm).

**Note: If you are currently relying on insurance through your undergraduate program make sure to complete any immunizations or titers prior to leaving your current program.
