Occupational Health Requirements

AECC University College requires all our clinical students to complete a health clearance check by the Dorset Occupational Health Department before starting their course. This is to ensure that students are declared fit to study and practice.

Occupational Health Immunisations Form 

Download our occupational health form and send it to your GP Practice for them to complete.

Make sure you ask for a copy of your immunisation report to include when submitting your completed documentation.

Submit this documentation to the Dorset Healthcare Occupational Health Portal. Admissions will send information on how and when to do this.

Mandatory vaccinations for clinical students:

AECC University College has unique multidisciplinary clinics which attract a variety of clinicians and patients and we actively seek new opportunities for students off campus within the NHS and private sector to enrich their clinical learning. Whilst this presents great opportunities for students, there is a risk of contracting an infection whilst on placement and vaccination helps to reduce this risk to both yourself and the public.

We take the safety of our community very seriously and advise all our students to be fully vaccinated (or have demonstrated immunity) against the following diseases:

  • Meningitis
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Polio
  • Tuberculosis (TB)
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Chickenpox (varicella zoster virus)

Please note:

  • You do not need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 at this time, although we do recommend it.
  • We need assurance that all childhood immunisations are up to date.
  • Please contact your GP practice if you do not have any of the vaccinations listed. Further information can be found in the FAQs below.
