Ochsner student orientation

This section contains complete details for Ochsner students transitioning to Phase 2 at the Ochsner Clinical School.

NOTE: Students may experience difficulties accessing some of the websites needed to complete orientation requirements, if still in Australia or outside of the U.S. For many complex reasons, some sites are not always accessible everywhere in Australia. The sites are definitely accessible on campus at St. Lucia and Herston, and anywhere in the CBD of Brisbane. Please also try using different internet browsers. 

5. Background checks

Students are required to obtain background checks from Precheck prior to arrival at Ochsner Clinical School. Deadline is December 15, 2017.

Why do I need a background check?

  • As a matter of compliance with Joint Commission and Regulatory Standards, healthcare specific background screenings are conducted.
  • For students to do away rotations, many institutions require background checks. OCS Administration will have this on file to provide to these institutions.
