Medical Screening

All international students joining RCSI Bahrain are required to be tested for blood-borne viruses on arrival in Bahrain, as mandated by the Ministry of Health. 

These tests will be arranged for during Orientation Week and further information will be provided with your offer letter.

Please note that if a positive result is received, the student in question will not be eligible to study at RCSI Bahrain and will be repatriated.
