General information:

  • Immunization shots and tuberculosis (TB) tests are mandatory for all students in the MLSc program. You will be denied entry into the laboratory if documentation has not been submitted.
  • Please refer to the links at the bottom of the page to print the necessary forms and obtain information for your health care provider.
  • Information about completion of the Entry Immunization Form (EIF) will be will be provided during a tutorial session of HLSC 2110U Foundations in Clinical Exercise Biochemistry in the Winter semester of the first year in the MLSc program.
  • If you are enrolled in the MLSc program and will not attend HLSC 2110U, please contact the Practicum Co-ordinator to facilitate completion of the immunization documents.
  • All students in the MLSc program are required to have a criminal reference check (with vulnerable sector screen) completed prior to the start of their practicum placement. If you have not provided appropriate documentation of a completed background check, you will not be eligible for practicum placement. Background checks are considered current if completed within one year of the placement start date.
  • Exceptions to these requirements are non-negotiable due to liability and safety regulations.

Document handling:

  • Students are responsible for keeping the original documents at all times. When immunization forms are completed, students are required to make a copy and deliver it to Evelyn Moreau, Medical Laboratory Practicum Co-ordinator. This can be accomplished in three ways:
    • Scan the document and email it to Evelyn Moreau.
    • Fax the document to the attention of Evelyn Moreau at 905.721.3188.
    • Drop a copy into the wooden mailbox labelled Evelyn Moreau or Sue O'Dwyer outside the Faculty of Health Sciences Student Services Centre, Science Building, Room 2000.
  • Once the forms have been verified as current and complete by the Campus Health Centre, you will be asked to pick up your forms from the university.
  • If you have a positive tuberculosis (TB) skin test and are being monitored by chest X-ray, you only need to have one done for the duration of the MLSc program, unless you become symptomatic. Please provide a copy of your chest X-ray report with your EIF.

Note: Students must monitor their uoit.net email addresses throughout the entire year to facilitate the smooth handling of their documentation.
