Please note: Immunization requirements for incoming students (study stays / traineeships) are currently being revised. Details will be published on this website shortly. All incoming students will have to provide proof of immunization against Covid-19 during the application process. Please note that changes to the below-mentioned immunization record therefore have to be expected. During the stay at MedUni Vienna, incoming exchange students will be included in the safety measures (regular testing etc.).
This information is relevant for applicants for activities (at institutions) within the Vienna Hospital Association (Wiener Gesundheitsverbund/WIGEV, previously known as Krankenanstaltenverbund/KAV):
Starting November 1, 2017 trainees and new employees are only allowed to take up their work within the WIGEV/ KAV after the provision of a certificate of immunity, a prerequisite to protect patients and employees. This certification has to be issued by a medical doctor on the form „Immunitätsnachweis für Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe im Wiener KAV“.
The form can be downloaded from the website https://www.turnus-wien.at/im-studium/studium-im-kav/ through the link “Immunitätsnachweis“.
Only this specific document in German will be accepted. A translation, only for inspection purpose in English has been provided on this website.
The completed Immunization Record has to be submitted to the International Office during the application procedure (PDF format) and presented in its original version to the clinical departments upon request.
Applications will only be accepted upon submission of the completed Immunization Record. The International Office reviews the document for completeness. Responsibility for admission to activities in the hospital sector rests with the relevant clinics.
The receiving clinics can request further health certificates.
