Special Health Considerations for Incoming MCTI Students:

Community Health Department. It is required that entering students have a
negative status documentation to protect other students in the school
environment. If the skin test is positive, a chest x-ray may be ordered. We

stating "no evidence of tuberculosis."
- A general medical exam is also required to provide baseline health
information to MCTI nurses and local private health care providers in case
of a health emergency.
- It is very important for students to have a copy of their health care
insurance card and arrangements for local health care if the student has HMO

- Enrolling students should continue with their local Community Mental
Health therapist/psychiatrist if ongoing care and prescriptions may be
