Students with Recent Health Issues

Students with a recent illness (within the last 2 months) requiring hospitalisation, ongoing medical treatment (including mental health conditions e.g., anxiety), or a medical/surgical procedure are required to provide a medical certificate stating they are ‘fit for professional experience placement’ prior to PEP commencement. The certificate must be emailed to at least 2 weeks prior to their PEP commencement date.

NB: If a student returns to their PEP without a ‘fit for professional experience placement’ medical certificate, the JCU N&M reserves the right to cease the student’s PEP.
