The deadline for all credentialed medical staff and health care workers in the Academic Enterprise and Health System to complete their annual TB screening is April 30.
TB testing is offered Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at
the Employee Health Clinic and at certain clinics and inpatient units.
Employees tested after Dec. 1, 2014, do not have to be rescreened at this time. Those
who have had a positive TB test must complete the TB Evaluation Form; a chest X-ray will not be required unless an employee is symptomatic.
The Employee Health Clinic provides work-related health services to employees.
