Health checks

We have an overriding duty of care to the public with whom students come into close contact. All students are required to comply with the Department of Health’s guidance on health clearance for healthcare workers. Early clinical contact means that students will be asked to provide proof of their immunisation status by completing an Occupational Health Questionnaire on entry. Immunity against the following is required: polio; tetanus; varicella (chicken pox); diphtheria; measles; mumps; rubella; TB. Newcastle University follow the Dental School Council protocol on blood-borne viruses. Early in the course students will be required to be screened for hepatitis B; hepatitis C and HIV. All aspects of a student’s medical record will be bound by the same duty of confidentiality as for any doctor-patient interaction and informed by the same ethical guidance. Students commencing the programme will be immunised against hepatitis B by our Occupational Health provider, the cost will be covered by the school.

Interview

Candidates who are considered, on the basis of their application form, to be particularly promising are interviewed. Satisfactory references, interview, health screening and criminal records searches are all part of the selection process.
