Action Steps Based on Answers to Part One
Please select the statements that apply to you:

❑

I have answered no to questions #1-5 in Part One, and believe that no additional action on my part is necessary to
safeguard my health abroad.

❑

I answered yes to one or more of questions #1-4 in Part One and will discuss my health care needs with one or more
of the following: a representative from my home institution's unit coordinating my program, a representative from my
home institution's disability services office, a representative from the program provider or host institution, a health
care professional, parents, or other family members well in advance of my departure date.
I answered yes to question #5 in Part One and understand that I must:

❑
❑

a) Submit Part Three to the applicable unit coordinating my program after having it completed by the physician
providing care for my indicated condition or by another physician qualified to advise on my care.
b) Sign a release form with my healthcare provider if I would like my provider to share relevant information with the
appropriate unit coordinating my program.

student has not been a regular patient. Instead, consider developing a three-step process to trigger follow-up
based on voluntary disclosures. For example, Part One
is a self-assessment "quiz" (see above) that helps the
student determine whether or not any action should be
taken to plan for medical needs abroad.

Part Two (see above) classifies students further:
those needing minimal actions and those needing medical advice. Students with routine medical conditions
require some planning, but not medical "clearance."
They should be able to decide with whom that planning should occur.
