Requirements for medical testing

In connection with practical training or clinical studies, certain students on particular courses and/or at specific trainee locations must be tested for tuberculosis and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).


For students on health-, social- and teacher training courses, there is a requirement for tuberculosis testing if the student has spent at least three months during the last three years in countries outside of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Japan.

For students who are going to have practical training at hospitals, nursing homes and other types of living arrangements with all-day care, there is a requirement to testing for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus if the student has worked in the health care system or has been admitted to health care institutions in countries outside the Nordic region during the last 12 months.
