Travel Clinic

Preparing for study abroad is an exciting time, but traveling to other countries can present unique health risks. To ensure your health and safety, study abroad physicals are required for certain geographic areas.

Schedule your appointment in advance.
The appointment will take about an hour. There is a small office visit fee, but charges may occur if vaccines or lab work are needed. Your provider will discuss this with you.

Bring along your immunization records.
If you received the vaccine or titer (blood draw) at our office, we will have the record. Please contact student compliance for a list of immunization records you submitted upon admission to the University.

Bring along the forms you received from the Global Studies office.
There is a specific page requiring an M.D. or C.N.P. signature.

Check out the Center for Disease Control & Prevention website.
Access health safety information for your travel destination. Write down any questions you may have for the provider at your appointment.

If you are unable to obtain your study abroad physical from Health & Wellness due to scheduling conflicts, an alternative off-campus resource is the HealthPartners Travel Clinic in St. Paul.

Make sure to keep these Health & Wellness resources handy before and while you travel abroad.
