Registered Campus Organization (RCO) Community Education and Health Fair Participation

Whenever a student provides health information, provides counseling or performs a hands-on procedure at any health event that is not part of a class, prior approval from your respective School is required to ensure professional liability coverage for the student, school(s), and campus involved in the event.

Students cannot provide any care and/or education for which they have not (yet) been trained. Participation must be supervised by a UCSF faculty member whose scope of practice is appropriate for supervision of the activities of that health fair.

In order to request approval from your School for your organization and your members to participate in any health event, please submit Community Outreach & Health Fair Participation Request Form at least three weeks in advance of the health event. If will be automatically sent to your School to review.

If your organization is in need of any health fair supplies, please fill out the Health Fair Supplies Request Form at least two weeks in advance of the health event.

After the health event, one of the organization members must submit a Community Outreach & Health Fair Post Participation Form within two weeks after the event.

If prior School approval for student participation is not received, the campus' professional liability insurance for the participants is not activated.
