If an intern has not submitted all required clearances prior to the deadlines defined above, the slot in the internship program may be forfeited.

All interns are required to submit to any health and background clearances that are required by individual supervised practice sites such as Long Term Care or WIC in addition to the FHODIP general requirements.  Completion of all ancillary testing and checks is the responsibility of the intern.
