All candidates who firmly accept an offer from us will be required to complete an occupational health assessment.

Occupational Health assessment

All candidates who firmly accept an offer from us will be sent an Occupational Health assessment form which includes health screening and immunisation, in the June of the year they are due to start studying with us. This must be completed and returned before taking up your place with us.

Our Occupational Health teams at the University of Hull and the University of York will consider:

  • Possible effects on your health of a demanding and intensive medical course
  • Whether, and in what ways, your clinical contact with patients should be modified
  • Whether you will need any reasonable adjustments so that you can complete the Medicine programme satisfactorily

Very rarely, the decision may be taken that a disability or condition makes an applicant unsuitable to study medicine, on the grounds of patient safety or inability to meet the General Medical Council Outcomes for Graduates guidance and fitness to practice requirements. This decision will only be taken after full discussion and consideration by our Fitness to Practise committee.
