During their program, Doctor of Medicine students will undertake placements with children and people living with disabilities. As such, you will require both a NDIS Worker Screening Clearance, and a Working with Children Check (Blue Card) prior to commencing your program. 

You can apply for both cards at the same time on a combined application.

Combined applications are submitted through Disability Worker Screening. 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.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to hold a valid clearance for the duration of your placement. If you are required to hold a valid clearance, it is against the law for you to commence or continue your placement without one under the No Card, No Start law.

If you are a disqualified person, it is an offence to apply for a Disability Worker Screening Clearance and Blue Card and penalties may apply.
