Agreement Process

The process for putting an agreement in place takes two forms. The University prefers to use its agreement, but hospitals and a few other facilities are bound to use the one prepared by their organization.

  1. Request for Agreement. An agreement is initiated by a written request from a department -- verbal information is never used. Fax and e-mail are both acceptable. The request must include the basic information such as the facility name, address, phone and contact.
  2. Generate New Agreement. Terms and conditions of an agreement can be negotiated at any time during this process by the affiliation agreement coordinator. Contact coordinator for further information.
