The deadline for submission is July 1, 2022. (January 2, 2023 for mid year transfers)

Please review and complete the required information listed. All forms can be accessed through the links below.  For continuity of care, we request that students upload their medical records for any chronic, ongoing or serious medical condition.

If you haven't done so already, activate your Brown account. You will need your Banner identification number in order to activate your electronic services. This number was assigned to you when you applied for admission to Brown. If you need additional assistance, please contact the Computing Accounts and Passwords Office at 401-863-4357.

To return forms, the student must login to the Brown Health Services Patient Portal and upload the forms.

If you are unable to upload, fax the forms to 401-863-3321 or mail to:

Depending on your answers, some students may require TB testing.

If you are required to have a TB skin test or IGRA blood test (Quantiferon Gold, T-Spot) it must be completed within 6 months prior to the start of classes. 
The TB Skin test must be performed in the U.S. If you are unable to have the test in the U.S., you will need a TB skin test at Brown Health Services upon your arrival at the University.  You will be contacted by Nursing@health.brown.edu to schedule an appointment for tuberculosis testing if you are unable to schedule an appointment prior to your arrival.
