Across the Commonwealth, state departments of health and placement agencies require students who have a clinical placement requirement as part of their course to undertake an annual police check. This is a mandatory requirement for each year that you attend a placement.
During your enrolment, you will be advised how and when to apply for a police check. Most schools and departments use Fit2Work as the preferred Police Check provider. An email including payment details and how to satisfy 100 points of certified ID will be sent to your Monash student email account.
The outcome of your Fit2Work application will be emailed to your Monash student email account; there is no need to bring your completed Fit2Work check to the University. Students are however required to take a copy of their Fit2Work check outcome to their clinical placement venue on orientation day and have it available (most sites will accept a photo on a smartphone) at all times while on placement.
Support: Please contact Fit2Work on: 1300 575 575 for further information regarding your check or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
NOTE: For re-enrolling students, you will be asked to complete your application for a police check in October-November of the previous year. The police check will be conducted in January of the following year, to ensure the check is conducted in the same calendar year as your placement. The outcome of the completed Fit2Work check will be emailed to you prior to commencement of your clinical placement.
Your school or department will advise you of any further instructions.
