Pre-Placement Costs (2018/2019)
The following information outlines the approximate costs associated with each section of the Clinical/Field Pre-Placement Health Form.
Health Form Section A: Medical Requirement Costs
Please note that costs for Clinical/Field Pre-Placement Health Forms may vary from $0 to $200. Please contact your choice of medical provider to find out the correct amount.
- Please bring the stated amount to your first appointment at the Fowler Kennedy Clinic, Family Physician and/or local Walk-in Clinic to pay for completion of the Clinical/Field Pre-Placement Health Form.
- The Middlesex-London Health Unit will NOT fill out your Clinical/Field Pre-Placement Health Form. They will only complete the portions of the services they provided to you.
- The Fowler Kennedy Clinic (Student Wellness Centre, Room J1004, 519-452-4230) can educate you on the procedure for TB testing. You will need four visits to complete a two-step TB test, so you may want to consider travel time and any expenses involved. TB testing for placement is covered by OHIP or MorCare insurance.
- If you need the Hepatitis B vaccination, it is covered by OHIP or MorCare Insurance at the Middlesex-London Health Unit, local Walk-in Clinic or at the Fowler Kennedy Clinic. You can make your ParaMed appointment after you receive the "second dose", as it is recognized that you are in the process of receiving the vaccination series.
Health Form Section B: Non-Medical Requirement Costs
- A Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) may be required.
International students needing a PVSC must get the screening from the London Police Service.
- If you live in London: Bring $45, photo/address identification (passport, license, mail, etc.) Forms and College Letters are available in Building D, room D3018.

- CPR level "C" or "HCP" may be required as well as Standard First Aid training. This 2-day training might be available at the College through Part-Time Studies. Training may also be available through the Heart and Stroke Foundation, St. John Ambulance or the Canadian Red Cross.
- First Aid and CPR training will cost approximately $120 to $180 depending on the level and service provider.
