MRSA screening repeated in Lund

Due to local regulations MRSA screening, including bacterial cultures from nasal mucus membrane, throat, perineum and from any piercing or wound/skin changes, must be repeated upon arrival at Lund*. This means that the student must arrive one week prior to the clinical placement. Your screening from Lund must be negative before you start your clinical placement. This screening is free of charge and administered by the International Office.

*Students and foreign employees from the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland and Denmark, included Åland, Faroe Islands and Greenland) are from 1 April, 2016 exempted from the MRSA screening.
