In addition to the above, UK hospitals require the following:

  1.  Proof of an IPV vaccine (inactivated polio vaccine) received within the past 10 years. Students  should try to get this vaccination prior to going to the UK. If they are unable, they will be able to get it in the UK for a fee.
  2. When students arrive at the UK hospitals, the hospital will draw blood to test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), antibodies to hepatitis C (ant-HCV), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and possibly other titers. Hospitals have the option of charging students for these tests. Students should request and save lab copies of these tests, since future hospital placements my require them
