Medical Review Process


SIT Study Abroad is committed to the health and safety of all our program participants. Through our years of experience, we have found that preparation, prevention, and communication are key to keeping students healthy and safe.

Prior to departure, all students must submit a medical form, which will be reviewed by our health team. All questions must be answered, and materials must be submitted on time.

Medical Form (PDF)

We strongly encourage all students to fully disclose their medical history so that we can prepare them properly for their experience, make arrangements for any special accommodations for students if necessary, and in some cases assess whether there may be any medical reasons that a student should consider another program.

This information will be kept confidential and will be provided to our academic directors in-country as necessary, so that our program staff will know students' medical history in case of an emergency. A member of our staff may contact students to discuss program realities and to clarify expectations for our program staff and for the student.

Please note that failure to disclose complete and accurate information on the medical form can result in dismissal from the program.

Disability Services
Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services as early as possible prior to the start of the program for information and support.  Please email or visit the Disability Services web page, which includes documentation guidelines and a link to the accommodation request form.
