Health Exam for Student Visa

Hello. First time ko dito at first post ko po dito sa forum, kaya pag pasensyahan na kung may topic nang ganito. May tanong lang po, and hopefully someone could help me.

I got a PhD offer and scholarship to study at Griffith University (Gold Coast) this April 2019. I'll be applying for a student visa (500) next week (I'm just collating my documents for the GTE and thinking of how to pay my OSHC in order for me to get my CoE).

Question: is a medical examination required for the student visa? The thing is, I just got my tourist visa last November (single entry only, and I was there for 1 week). I was required to get a medical exam for the tourist visa.

Now, will they still require me to take another medical exam for the student visa? Or can I use the recently completed one? If so, would you think they'll be adding more types of exam (e.g., HIV, TB, etc.)?

Thanks sa makakasagot.
