Medicine and Disabilities Abroad

Traveling Abroad with Medications

Some programs/universities abroad may require students to complete a medical or health history form prior to or upon arrival. Students with medical conditions should discuss their plans to study abroad with their physician and should take a copy of vaccinations, allergies and medications regularly taken with them abroad. Note that not all medications are legal or available in other countries. More information about medical considerations prior to studying abroad is found on the UR Student Health webpage and the following pages below. Students may also contact AXA Assistance USA for advice.
