Vaccinations & Others Include :

Initial TB screening (within 1 year of start of observership)
Influenza vaccinations (flu shot)
Proof of vaccinations (MMR)
Proof of Hepatitis B titers
Proof of health insurance (e.g. copy of declaration page or health insurance card or letter from school’s student affairs dean)


Regarding Clothing you should be in formal clothing with a knee length lab coat and buy 3-4 pairs of scrubs.

Don't forget your instruments : stethoscope with neonatal & infant size diaphragms , flash light , etc

Always carry a small note pad with you.

Buy a few cheap pens because they get lost quickly
