As always, HGTC relies on the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) and encourage vaccinations.
For healthcare students, vaccinations may be required at HGTC's Healthcare Clinical
Education Sites. HGTC collaborates with local healthcare facilities to provide quality
education and real-world experiences in the clinical setting. As you are aware, the
COVID vaccination requirements for healthcare workers, instructors, and students are
consistently evolving and changing. While HGTC does not have a COVID-19 vaccination
requirement, we must abide by the requirements and best practices set forth by clinical
affiliates for students to participate in clinical education rotations so they may
achieve learning outcomes.
Healthcare students may be required to provide one of the following:
- Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or
- Medical Exemption Packet or
- Religious Exemption Packet
Medical exemption and religious exemption packets will be sent to the clinical facility where the individual clinical site will approve or deny the requested exemption. Please contact the HGTC Clinical Admissions Staff at email@example.com if you have questions or concerns.
In addition to our face-to-face courses, HGTC continues to offer courses in a variety of formats (hybrid, synchronous and online), so you may choose the option best suited for you, your schedule, and your success.
