On January 1, 2004, a new Joint Commission of Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) standard became effective requiring criminal background checks for security purposes on all employees, staff, and volunteers who supervise care, render treatment, and provide services. The site governing this policy can be found at: http://www.utmb.edu/policy/ihop/search/03-03-02.pdf
Individual institutions have been given the responsibility for mandating this clearance for students. The UTMB School of Medicine policy states that students who are assigned to clinical facilities that require criminal background checks for security purposes must comply with and receive clearance from affiliated institutions in order to participate in clinically related activities. Therefore, in keeping with this policy, all students will be required to undergo a background check for security clearance in order to matriculate into UTMB.
