If you are completing a health-related degree at the University, a core part of your course will be a placement in a health facility. There are certain checks and clearances you will need to get before you can undertake this placement.
When you complete a placement in a NSW Health facility, you will need to meet certain requirements and be verified by the NSW Ministry of Health to ensure your safety and that of other students, staff and patients. You can find information for students and an introduction to clinical placements, immunisation requirements and information for overseas students.
We will let you know during enrolment what checks and clearances are required for your course. Depending on your placement and faculty or school requirements, you may also need to get a Working With Children Check.
If you are completing a placement in another state or territory, or a private facility, you'll still need to complete these checks and clearance requirements. There may also be additional requirements or processes to follow.
You can get your verification at a scheduled on-campus verification session. After you have enrolled, we will email you with details of your session.
You will need certain documents and forms to be checked by representatives from the NSW Ministry of Health.
If you are a current NSW Ministry of Health employee, you still need to get verified as a student by the NSW Ministry of Health before your placement.
You will need to attend your allocated verification session.
If you have gained full or temporary compliance, you will be able to attend your placement.
If you have been assessed as unable to either temporarily or permanently meet one or more of these mandatory requirements, contact the Office of Clinical Education Support.
