MSGC, OTD, and PharmD students are required to earn Basic Life Support certification in the first year of their respective programs during the Academic Prologue. . If a student fails to earn certification at that time, he or she will NOT be allowed to enroll in any clinical rotations or fieldwork until certification is achieved. BLS re-certification is required after two years. SPHS will cover recertification at the beginning of the third year, and students who do not participate in the school-sponsored sessions will need to cover their own cost.
It is required that all students in the Health Science disciplines complete the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security trainings. For PharmD students, the HIPAA Privacy and Security Certification is required for enrollment in any clinical rotation. PharmD students must upload certificates of completion (PDF format) into their Complio accounts. This training must be renewed every 12 months.
Students must be in compliance with the applicable state licensing requirements for a Student Pharmacist Intern in the states where they will participate in the KGI Experiential Education program. They will enroll as interns in California in their first academic year of the program. California requires pharmacy students to be enrolled in a school of pharmacy to register as a Pharmacist Intern. The fees for these registrations are included in the tuition.
Students who practice in other states which require registration as an intern are responsible for the fees and completion of paperwork in a timely manner. Any period of non-enrollment, other than summer, must be reported to the California Board of Pharmacy. The California Intern Pharmacist License will be inactivated during any period of non-enrollment. The student must apply to the California Board of Pharmacy for license reinstatement when the next period of enrollment begins. Application to the California Board of Pharmacy for reinstatement and associated costs is the responsibility of the student and not SPHS.
The SPHS purchases and maintains professional liability/malpractice insurance for pharmacy students for claims and judgments arising out of their activities during the site assignment. Students are required to purchase their own individual professional liability/malpractice insurance and must never let their coverage lapse; this will be discussed during orientation.
All PharmD students are required to receive Blood Borne Pathogens Training. To meet this requirement, all KGI Student Pharmacists are required to complete the training through the online Pharmacist’s Letter course “Protecting Yourself Against Bloodborne Pathogens”, provided courtesy of Walmart Pharmacy. Training will include information on the epidemiology, symptoms, and transmission of blood borne pathogen diseases. Universal Precautions Training is a requirement. PDF copies of the completed Blood Borne Pathogens Certification Trainings must be uploaded to each student’s Complio account. These trainings must be renewed every 12 months and submitted to Complio.
Upon matriculation into the KGI SPHS, all PharmD students are required to complete a background and drug screening through their Complio account, submit immunization and titer records, and all other required documentation into Complio. It is the sole responsibility of the student to complete and submit all the correct requirements/documentation before the due date(s) and to never let any of those requirements/documentation expire. Failure to be compliant at any time can result in failure of the course, delay in graduation, and financial implications for the student.
All incoming PharmD students are required to create a Complio account with American DataBank upon matriculation.
