In non-clinical spaces

Visitors may be on campus in non-clinical spaces including research labs and clinical research spaces where their presence for the research is required.

In clinical spaces

Visitors may not return to clinical spaces unless they are part of a formal program (i.e. PEMRAP, training contract for devices, physicians or allied professionals) or there is a pre-existing relationship with a Memorandum of Understanding/Program Level Agreement.

High school and undergraduate shadowing experiences are not allowed outside of these circumstances.

Health professional students and graduate students at Washington University School of Medicine and other Washington University clinically oriented graduate programs (i.e. graduate engineering students or social work students working in the clinical environment as part of their core training rotations) are not considered visitors.

Health professional students and residents/fellows from affiliates with a formal MOU/PLA are allowed for either formal rotations or shadowing if incorporated in the MOU/PLA.

Medical students from outside of Washington University are allowed for formal rotations for credit but must apply and be approved for a visiting rotation through VSAS to manage total clinical volumes. Faculty may not take shadowers outside of these parameters at this time because of density within the clinical space.
