For students enrolling for OM3 and OM4 at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre (at Austin Health in Melbourne), strict immunisation requirements apply.
At least 2 weeks before the commencement of the student placement at the Centre, OML must provide a written statement to Austin Health confirming that we have sighted evidence of the following immunisations/immunity in relation to each student:
- Chicken Pox
- Hepatitis B
- Tuberculosis screen
- Annual Influenza Vaccination (optional but preferred).
That being the case, a student enrolling for OM3 and OM4 will need to provide documentary proof to OML of their immunity. Increasingly, hospitals and clinics are asking for similar immunisation guarantees.
