TMIKY or Choice MD post-secondary educational establishments are NOT eligible for Title IV funding or Student Aid programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The federal government generally does not provide loans, grants or other forms of financial assistance to students attending a non-accredited college. (www.irs.gov)

According to the IRS, students can only deduct their loan interest if the loan was used at a school that participates in the U.S. student aid program. This is limited to schools with approved accreditation. Therefore, TMIKY or Choice MD schools are not eligible to provide tax Form 1098-T for tuition statement or Form 1098-E for student loan interest statement. Personal loans are utilized for educational purposes, and students are advised and must authorize this attestation in advance of attendance.

Tax preparers will be supplied a W-9 Form upon request. TMIKY or Choice MD employees are not qualified to advise students on tax matters.



Students must adhere to conduct that will not interfere with the learning process of any other student, teacher, externship site, or the progress of the class in general. Those students whose conduct reflects discredit upon themselves or the school will be subject to immediate expulsion.

I have been given the opportunity to ask questions about inoculation and risks involved in receiving the vaccines and in declining vaccination. My questions have been answered to my satisfaction. I understand that TMIKY or Choice MD is not responsible for my attaining vaccinations or liable in the event that I should contract any contagion during my education. I understand my externship site may request records before attendance, and I am responsible for obtaining them in a timely manner.

I have already been vaccinated or have started the Hep B series. I will supply proof of vaccination by first skills day.
I do not plan to receive the Hep B vaccination at this time; however, I understand I may receive the vaccination at a later date.

I will access or view patient information only as it is required in the scope of my student experience to include my own health record if applicable.

I will not disclose, copy, transmit, modify or destroy patient information or other confidential practice information without the permission of my supervisor or the practice’s privacy officer.

I agree to comply with these conditions even after my student externship experience is terminated.

I understand violation of this agreement may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination from the externship and dismissal from my program. My signature on this agreement indicates that I, a student of TMIKY or Choice MD have read, understand and will comply with all aspects of this confidentiality agreement.



To be in compliance with OSHA standards on bloodborne pathogens, each student must be informed of the mandatory Universal Precautions in all healthcare settings. These standards and precautions are included and covered in detail within the courses. This must be completed by the student prior to externship eligibility. It is also required that students be informed and encouraged to begin the Hepatitis B vaccine series. However, you may decline vaccination at this time. Students are required to read and sign the Hepatitis B Statement of Informed Consent prior to placement in an externship facility. Students will be required to meet all OSHA requirements on the externship. In addition, each individual facility may have some variation of these rules and regulations and it is the student’s responsibility to obtain a copy of these rules and regulations at that externship site. Those regulations set forth by that facility, must also be met by the student.



TMIKY or Choice MD students are responsible for:

  1. Reading this student information sheet and following the guidelines.
  2. Identifying the appropriate contacts on campus and at externship sites.
  3. Paying for all expenses either through their own health insurance or other personal means associated with testing, medications, and related costs.
  4. Providing medical expenses to include blood work requested of source patients.

The student will be responsible for the cost of their care, either through their own health insurance or other personal means. All source patients are encouraged to have blood work as designated by the CDC protocol current at the present time (presently HCV antibody, HIV antibody, and Hepatitis B surface antigen).

TMIKY or Choice MD is committed to providing a safe and professional work environment for our students, volunteers, faculty and staff while on campus or at a clinical affiliation.

All students must be physically and mentally free of illegal drugs, alcohol, and prescription drugs that impair their intellectual and emotional functions. Some clinical affiliations (externships) require students to complete drug screening and/or a background check prior to clinical placement, or during if suspect of drug use. A positive drug screen may exclude you from clinical placement, graduation, and may warrant dismissal from the school.

Without exception, any student found in possession of these substances or a student is suspected of being under the influence of these substances (alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs) the Instructor and/or the Campus Supervisor will ask the student to leave the facility and immediately be drug tested at the student’s expense. Results are to be faxed directly to the instructor and must be received within 24 hours of being dismissed. The results will only be shared with the Instructor, Campus Supervisor and Education Director.

A positive test, failure or refusal to complete requested drug testing will result in automatic dismissal from the program. In the event of a positive test result, resources will be made available to the student to assist in counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation. Any student wishing to re-enroll after a positive drug screen or refusal to submit to testing must comply with an immediate drug screen upon admittance and is subject to random drug screening during their program at the student’s own expense. Any further positive test results or refusal will be cause for expulsion without option to re-enroll.
