4. Background checks

Students are required to obtain background checks from Precheck prior to arrival at Ochsner Clinical School.

Why do I need a background check?

  • As a matter of compliance with Joint Commission and Regulatory Standards, healthcare specific background screenings are conducted.
  • For students to do away rotations in Year 4, many institutions require background checks. OCS Administration will have this on file to provide to these institutions.
