Graduates and former students may need to supply proof that they were insured for professional liability (malpractice) while a student at UMSON. To obtain this verification:
Hospitals, clinical training sites, and state licensing boards may request a criminal background check. For more information about criminal background checks:
Many Maryland hospitals accept the results of a background check conducted by PreCheck/StudentCheck, a commercial firm. However, each clinical site sets its own policy and determines the approved method of obtaining a background check. For help with StudentCheck, email: email@example.com.
UMSON does not review or retain results of a criminal background check or drug screen. Results are released to clinical sites for their assessment for placement. Background checks from other agencies are not accepted for placement. Students must contact PreCheck/StudentCheck to for copies of results or questions regarding checks.
Graduates may submit a request for degree certification. The National Student Clearance House provides degree certification for non-graduates, including employers. Employers may contact the clearing house directly.
