Injury During Training Assignments

In the event of an accident, injury, or other incident during a training assignment, the accident report procedure for the institution where the student is training must be followed. Without this record keeping, the student’s own health insurance coverage and/or PCOM’s professional liability could be placed in jeopardy.

In the event of an injury in a clinical or other training setting, such as a needlestick or splash, the student should refer to the PCOM Bloodborne Pathogen Injury Procedure for Students and the Report of Needlestick/Sharp on the MyPCOM, Student Resources tab in the Student & Resident Medical Records Forms.
