Health Compliance Overview
Health Compliance at Grand Valley State University is established to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff participating in clinical or non-clinical experiential education or research at health-related affiliated facilities meet certain requirements. Infectious communicable diseases may be present in affiliated facilities. To protect everyone involved, Health Compliance requirements are established using local, state, and federal statutory regulations, accreditation standards, and GVSU policy. Health Compliance requirements are discipline-specific and are established in collaboration with each health-related academic program, as well as being contractually bound by Affiliation Agreements.
Health Compliance at GVSU is administered through the University's secure online system. Prior to placement, students/faculty/staff are notified and assigned a Health Compliance account. All Health Compliance records and training are accessible to students up to one year after graduation and to faculty/staff while they are affiliated with the University.
