Frequently Asked Questions

  • The Rehabilitation Department has several locations throughout the hospitals. Patient treatment occurs seven days a week on most units; therefore, weekend work often is required. Since the staff has a wide variety of schedules, it's best to check with your clinical supervisor for your specific work hours.

  • During the fall and winter, Johns Hopkins Medicine offers free influenza vaccination to all employees (including students and interns). Flu shots are required for employees, interns and students who work within six feet of patients.

    For Level 1 students, a receipt indicating that the student has received a flu shot is the only documentation needed prior to the internship.

  • Professional, casual attire is the normal attire for therapists. Scrubs are acceptable in certain areas. Lab coats are optional. Jeans, tank tops, sandals, open-toed shoes, tight fitting or low-cut blouses revealing cleavage are not permitted.

    Hospital ID badges will be provided on the first day. They must be worn within the hospital at all times.

  • Students must present a neat appearance. It is important that hairstyles, including facial hair, not interfere with efficiency. Makeup must be conservative and suitable for work. Hair color should be of a natural shade.

  • Use of jewelry should be kept to a minimum and appropriate to the type of setting in which you work. Small earrings, a watch and minimal rings are the standard. Necklaces and bracelets are permitted, but should be kept to a minimum.

  • Fingernails should be natural and no longer than 1/4" beyond the fingertips. Artificial nails are prohibited. Nails should be trimmed and filed so that they are not sharp. Nail polish is acceptable in light, traditional colors.
