This includes:

  • DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Check or equivalent;
  • University Occupational Health screening;
  • Tier 4 Visas and issue of CAS (if applicable);
  • completion of registration form for your University Student Record;
  • timetable for induction days held here at The University of Manchester;
  • arranging transport for students to travel from Preston to the induction days (for those based at Preston);
  • online registration with The University of Manchester and IT sign-up information;
  • instructions on completing the University’s mandatory health and safety, induction and data protection e-learning modules in Blackboard (accessed via 1Med);
  • confirmation of clinical education campus allocation (for IMU and Dentists only).

Year 3 Clinical Education Campus Year administrators

In addition to the Direct Entry Administrator, you will have a Year 3 Administrator/Coordinator based at your clinical education campus (NHS staff).

The Year 3 Administrator/Coordinator will get in touch with you quite early in the joining process. They will make all the arrangements for your clinical placements as soon as you start, as well as your ongoing timetable for the programme in the 1Med system.

Other things they may contact you about include:

  • completion of mandatory training for clinical placements, which is required by each hospital trust and must be completed before starting;
  • the opportunity to declare any mitigation in relation to your clinical placements;
  • providing a passport-style photograph for your hospital trust ID card – some may ask for this in advance.

If you have a question relating specifically to clinical placements or any of the above areas, you should contact the Administrator for your allocated teaching hospital.
