  2. Statement of Good Health – this is not a physical but a statement that you are healthy enough to be a podiatry student (NOT your medical history as that is confidential to you).
  3. Medical insurance* which covers occupational exposure and waiver – if you are not enrolled in the Barry student insurance you must maintain a current insurance waiver which states that you are covered for occupational hazard.

* All international students (F-1 or J-1 Visa Status) and students residing in campus housing are required to comply with the University's Health Policy and present the following information to the Student Health Services.
