Health and Medical Information
The participation in the field school at Badia Pozzeveri involves intense physical activity and possibly high temperatures (over 90 °F) during the workday. It is mandatory that all students consult with their physician to confirm that they will be able to endure the demands of working outdoors for several hours.
All students accepted in the program will be required to provide a physician’s note stating that they are in good health and able to participate in the field school safely. In case of students with medical conditions and/or special needs, a specialist’s note will be required. In order to guarantee safety and proper intervention in case of emergency, medical history information must be included in the physician’s note. Such information will be treated with absolute confidentiality and will not be disclosed to any third party unless required to safeguard the student’s health.
All students enrolled in the field school must have a valid international medical insurance for the entire duration of their stay in Italy. Students are required to provide policy information prior to their arrival in Italy.
Given the potential exposure to pathogens in the soil, students must have had a tetanus vaccination or booster within the past ten years; no other vaccinations are required to travel to Italy.
