Health examinations for students in universities of applied sciences

First-year students have the opportunity to fulfil an online health questionnaire. The responses are used to assess the needs for and urgency of health examinations. A nurse's examination is offered to all first-year students in universities of applied sciences. Some of the students are invited to examinations personally on the basis of their health questionnaires or online responses.

The students invited to health examinations on the basis of their health questionnaires comprise
- students who indicate in their health questionnaires that they wish to have a health examination in student health care
- students who are exposed to such factors during their studies that carry high risks of causing illness
- students whose health questionnaires indicate that they need help from a health care professional or a referral to further examinations or treatment
- students whose health questionnaires indicate that they would benefit from healthcare intervention because of risk behaviour, unhealthy habits or other health risks.

For the student health examinations, the student health care personnel obtain the necessary student health information from earlier care.

Students in universities of applied sciences are referred to a doctor on the basis of the nurse's assessment. Special attention is paid to students with health risks affecting their future careers. Such risks include mental health problems, substance abuse, medication affecting their capacity to study, physical restrictions, allergies and skin rashes.
