PURPOSE / SCOPE:
To provide guidance should a health issue be discovered incidentally among faculty, staff and students during small group/interactive learning activities, OMM lab, and/or Clinical Skills Lab
Any abnormal clinical findings and/or concerns that come to the attention of individual students and/or faculty during interactive and “hands on” learning scenarios should be deferred to seek appropriate medical care from a licensed provider outside of ICOM’s purview. In the rare event that a physical exam finding is deemed to be of an emergent care need, then student (or faculty) should seek care at local emergency departments or initiate “911” services where appropriate.
