Personal Safety and Security

Rocky Vista University, together with the clinical site and the student, share the responsibility for ensuring that adequate policies and procedures are in place regarding the safety and security of the students and faculty in all locations where instruction occurs. This includes sites where clinical rotations occur, as well as off-site training locations for University-sponsored events.

The Physician Assistant Program will provide information on best practices for personal safety and security during the student’s initial orientation and again prior to the beginning of clinical rotations. Students will be encouraged to become familiar with all safety and security policies in effect at all sites and off-campus events. Finally, all preceptors will be expected to communicate their site-specific policies and safety considerations with students and faculty involved at their location. 

RVU as an educational institute falls under the jurisdiction of the Clery Act. (The annual security report can be found on the Clery Act).
