Information for Visitors Who Work Around Animals

Short-term Visitors

Short-term visitors to the University whose work will not involve non-human primates or working in BSL-3 facilities may waive participation in Research Occupational Health Program (ROHP) by filling our the Short-term Visitors Waiver of Participation in Research Occupational Health Program.

Visitors who will be at the University longer than 5 days may only waive participation in ROHP if they certify that they are enrolled in a comparable occupational health care program associated with animal care and use at their home institution.
