  1. Release of Medical Information:  

2.1 Education Abroad and CU Boulder value student privacy and will not share medical information unless absolutely necessary for health and safety purposes. In order to safeguard the health and safety of program participants, provide the best support possible, and ensure the success of the program, certain situations may require Education Abroad to share medical information with program providers, host institutions, and/or other offices at CU (such as Disability Services, Student Support & Case Management, Medical Services, etc.). By signing this document, I give Education Abroad permission to disclose medical information to program providers, host institutions, and/or relevant CU offices as described above and on a need-to-know basis. 


  1. Emergency Medical Authorization:  

3.1.  On occasion, emergencies may arise that require medical care, hospitalization, or surgery for a participant. So that such treatment can be administered without delay, we ask that each participant sign the following statement authorizing the University of Colorado Boulder's Director or appointed official abroad to secure, at the expense of the participant, any treatment deemed necessary. 

In the event of injury or illness, if I am unable to do so myself, I hereby authorize the Director or appointed official of the University of Colorado Boulder, at my expense, to secure any necessary treatment, including administration of anesthetic and surgery, and such medication as may be prescribed. It is further agreed that, if my condition so requires, I may be returned to the United States, at my expense.

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado.  Nothing in this Agreement operates to waive the rights, privileges and immunities available to the University under the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act or the Eleventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. 

I have read and fully understand the terms of this Agreement, and I accept its terms.
