Medicine students in a problem based learning session at Hull York Medical School

Occupational health

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

Occupational Health assessment

We follow advisory guidance published by the General Medical Council Welcomed and Valued and the Medical Schools Council Supporting and encouraging applicants with a disability. We support students with disabilities and health conditions with reasonable adjustments through our selection, recruitment and admission processes and during their medical studies.

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 based in Hull and 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
