Medical and Physical Capacity Test
Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Paramedicine will be required to undertake a medical and physical capacity test prior to commencing clinical placement with an Australian Ambulance Service. This is an ambulance service mandatory requirement.
Students are required to provide evidence of immunisation prior to attending clinical placements at hospitals and other health agencies.
It is the responsibility of the student to pay for and obtain a police check upon acceptance into the course. The police check must be presented to the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine by week 3, semester 1 in the commencing year of the course. Students who have not presented the Police check by this time will be unable to participate in practical units.
Working with Children Check
All students who work with children and young people as part of their studies are required to apply for a Working with Children check. As children/young people may be cared for in all clinical settings, students are required to complete the requirements of the Working with Children check prior to their clinical experience. Further information can be obtained from http://www.justice.vic.gov.au/workingwithchildren.
Students are required to purchase the Ambulance Victoria approved overalls, a hard hat, personal protective equipment, black boots, wet weather jacket, fleece jacket and other equipment as required. Students are also required to wear a wrist watch with a second hand whilst on clinical placement.
