IDC will email applicants that require a medical with a fitness to train questionnaire.  If you have applied to study a health programme, this will be followed up with a separate email to complete your vaccination history information.  IDC will then make any arrangements with you for any additional vaccinations you require. 

Applicants that accept UoC as their firm choice will receive an email from Industrial Diagnostics Company Limited with instructions on how to log on to their system and how to complete the fitness to train questionnaire.

Please note: The email address will be from no-reply@ohims.co.uk. During the health assessment process it is important to monitor your spam/trash as your IT system set up may divert the emails to these folders.
