As a UQ medical student you are required to complete a number of compulsory annual program requirements. Some of the associated tasks can be done well in advance, while others cannot be completed until your enrolment becomes active, or you are on campus in Brisbane.

It is important that you read the information below carefully and ensure that you provide all documentation by the posted deadlines. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the student administration team (med.enquiries@uq.edu.au). 

More information on how to upload documents will be provided towards the end of 2018. Students should maintain their completed forms until this information is published. 

 

1. Blue Card

Trainee students who work with children and young people in Queensland must hold a valid blue card if their work falls into a category of regulated employment, regardless of how often they will come into contact with children and young people. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they have a valid Blue Card at all times.

If your blue card expires and you have not submitted your renewal application at least 30 days before the expiry date, you cannot continue in your studies in the clinical environment until after you have received a new blue card.

When to complete this task:

Students are required to bring the completed form in person during Orientation week of Year 1. The Faculty of Medicine is unable to accept or process this form prior to Orientation week.

To complete the blue card or exemption card application process you will need to:

  1. Prepare your application form online
  2. Download and print a copy of your application
  3. Have your identification documents checked and verified by an authorised representative from our organisation.
  4. Make sure our organisation’s representative has signed the application form, and listed the identification documents sighted
  5. The Faculty of Medicine will lodge your application to Blue Card Services on your behalf
