MIT requires that all incoming students, including Visiting Students and Special Students, submit a completed Medical Report Form. The form includes a medical history as well as documentation of immunizations and/or immunity to certain infectious diseases, as required by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Physical examinations for Graduate Students are only required for those students who plan on participating in varsity intercollegiate sports. Any student absent from MIT for one year or longer must submit this form again. Medical Report Forms need to be submitted before registration for classes. Specific deadlines for each term are listed on the form itself. More information on specific requirements, as well as the Medical Report Form and instructions for completion, may be found on the MIT Medical website.
