Definition: A formal program of study in which the student is currently enrolled in an school sponsored, credit class or program and is seeking a rotation at KRH. A formal affiliation agreement between the school and the facility has to be in place for this program. Please contact the Student Coordinator if you have any questions about an agreement for your school.
An affiliation agreement needs to be in place to go forward with a student placement for educational rotations. This can sometimes take some time. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure an agreement is current and in place well in advance of an educational experience. This cannot be done by the individual departments and must be approved by the Student Affiliations department.
Please review the attached documents that include the requirements for doing an educational rotation here at Kalispell Regional Healthcare (KRH).
3. Fill out Background Release Form in case we need to get a copy of the background check from the school for an audit or submit a copy of the background check with the Background Release Form.
If you are a medical student your school can also submit a letter of good standing instead of the background check stating that the background check has been run with all of the Kalipell Regional Healthcare requirements and has been cleared. Either way you, the student, will need to fill out the "Background Check/Release Form" and turn it in to the KRH Student Coordinator.
In some cases the school may not provide a background check for students. If this is the case, the student will be responsible for providing a national criminal background check along with exclusion list checks from Office of Inspector General (OIG) http://exclusions.oig.hhs.gov/ and the national sexual offender registry search http://www.nsopw.gov/en-us. Please check with your school contact to see if this is your responsibility to avoid delays in starting your student experience with Kalispell Regional Healthcare.Background Check/Release Form
Any documents that need to be filled out (not including the documents that were for review only) will need to be returned to the KRH Student Coordinator at least 30-60 days prior to the start of a rotation.

After all your requirements have been turned in and approved by the Student Coordinator, set up an appointment, in advance to be issued your student ID badge.
