New Hire Medical Review

Administrative Resources

All newly hired and appointed personnel within the University of Florida whose job duties will involve patient care, animal care, or contact with human blood or other potentially infectious material, are required to participate in a confidential pre-placement health screening program administered by the University of Florida's Occupational Medicine Program. Participation in this program is mandatory and will minimize any occupational risks to you and will insure that you can safely perform the essential functions of your new position.

In addition to the pre-placement health screening, you will be required to complete bloodborne pathogen biomedical waste training. Directions and information to take this training online through MyUFL will be sent to you in a ‘welcome email’ after your signed offer letter and demographic form is received. The bloodborne pathogen biomedical waste training will need to be completed prior to scheduling your pre-employment health appointment for clearance of patient contact.
