All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

Undergraduate Medical Education

As a medical student at the ChristianaCare, you are a part of a top-ranked health care team at one of the largest community-based teaching hospitals conducting research in the United States.

ChristianaCare hosts 700+ medical student rotations and 200+ Physician Assistant clinical rotations each year. Over the last eight years, we have successfully graduated over 100+ students from our Delaware Branch Campus program where students from Sidney Kimmel Medical College and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine complete all 3rd and some 4th year clerkships in our Delaware hospitals. Each year, students rotating at ChristianaCare match into one of our 29 residency and fellowship programs and many of our graduating residents/fellows choose to stay and practice in Delaware. Students will learn from a wide range of pathologies and work with nationally recognized faculty, accelerating your growth as an expert, caring clinician.
