IACUC

Occupational Health and Safety Program

All CWU personnel (faculty, staff, and students) named in an IACUC protocol who are using live vertebrate animals are required to enroll in CWU’s Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP). This entails completing a Vertebrate Animal Studies Medical Form and Medical Questionnaire. To enroll in the OHSP or renew medical clearance as required on an annual basis, please complete the form below. 

Vertebrate Animal Studies Medical Form and Medical Questionnaire 

Forms are to be hand delivered to Kerri Larson at the clinic - located on the corner of 11th Avenue and Poplar Street - or mailed to the medical clinic:

CWU Medical Clinic                                               
Attn: OHSP - Kerri Larson              
400 E. University Way
Ellensburg, WA 98926-7585

The forms will be reviewed by the medical clinic's OHSP medical professionals, who may request further information (i.e. basic medical tests or a physical). In addition, the OHSP professionals may request follow-up actions, such as vaccinations for those working with potentially infectious animals. Those planning international travel and research are advised to enroll in this program well in advance of their anticipated travel dates.

Medical clearance from the OHSP must be completed before any new IACUC protocols will be approved.

If you have any questions regarding the Occupational Health and Safety Program please call the CWU Medical Clinic at 509-963-1881.
