Penn Medicine requires a current affiliation agreement for all students. Students should confirm with their school's Program Director or Office of Student Affairs that a current Affiliation Agreement is in place and will remain current beyond the dates of the proposed student rotation.
An affiliation agreement must be specific to the entity (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Pennsylvania Hospital, Good Shepherd Penn Partners or Penn Care at Home) and to either the undergraduate or graduate programs. These agreements define the requirements that the Accredited School must meet specific to student health screening and immunization status, certification, insurance coverage, liability, drug screening and criminal background check.
If no current Affiliation Agreement is on record and you wish to pursue the establishment of a new agreement, you may contact via email the following entity representatives:
- Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
Cynthia Richardson, MSN, RN-BC
- Pennsylvania Hospital
David O'Brien, MSN, RN
