Preparation Checklists

What you need to know

Each health, medical and veterinary science course has slightly different pre-placement requirements. To find out what you need to do, select your profession below for a checklist that contains the links, forms and information you will need prior to your professional experience placement.

The paperwork and requirements for professional experience placement takes several weeks to complete and process. It is your responsibility to ensure you have allowed sufficient time. If you have any questions, please contact the Professional Placement Unit immediately.

Changes to Queensland Heath Immunisation Requirements

Queensland Health has notified JCU of changes to the Immunisation Requirements for a placement in a QHealth facility. 

Students entering into a QHealth facility must provide the following mandatory immunisation requirements:

  1. Hepatitis B
  2. Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  3. Varicella (chickenpox)
  4. Pertussis (whooping cough)

Please refer to the preparation checklist for further information to complete these requirements.

While we have endeavored to provide as much information as possible about the pre-placement requirements of the services and facilities used most commonly by JCU placement students, it is your responsibility to ensure all pre-placement requirements are met.  The Professional Placement Unit can assist you with questions or concerns you may have.
