Throughout their Doctor of Medicine program, students will participate in clinical placements involving children and individuals with disabilities. As a mandatory prerequisite for program commencement, students are required to obtain both a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Worker Screening Clearance and a Working with Children Check (Blue Card).You can apply for both checks at the same time on a combined application.

Combined applications are submitted through Disability Worker Screening. Please note that combined applications cannot be submitted to Blue Card Services directly.

If you make a combined application and both checks are approved, your Blue Card and NDIS Worker Screening card will have an expiry of 5 years.

It is essential to emphasise that maintaining a valid clearance is your responsibility throughout the program. Under the "No Card, No Start" law, it is unlawful to commence or continue your placement without the required clearance.

Attempting to obtain a Disability Worker Screening Clearance and a Blue Card while being a disqualified individual constitutes an offense, and legal penalties may be consequently imposed.
