Occupational Health Pre-employment physical and drug screen instructions

We look forward to you becoming part of the academic community at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix, Arizona, in the coming months.

You're expected to complete a pre-employment physical evaluation, including a drug screen, at Mayo Clinic Occupational Health 10 business days prior to your first day of orientation. Contact Occupational Health to schedule your appointment. Fill out your "Post Offer Health Assessment" forms and upload them to your MedHub portal.

Arizona instructions for OHS forms in MedHub

Complete all forms as requested by Mayo Clinic Occupational Health Services and upload in the MedHub portal. Include documentation of immunizations from your health care provider. The immunization documentation we are looking for includes:

  • Two MMR vaccines or documentation positive MMR lab titers
  • Two varicella vaccines or documentation positive varicella lab titers
  • Hepatitis B series
  • Tdap or Td
  • COVID-19 series
  • Influenza/flu shot (seasonal)
  • QuantiFERON TB lab test within the last 90 days

If you do not have documentation, we will discuss drawing lab titers, vaccine options, and next steps at your appointment.

Mayo Clinic also has a comprehensive plan to reduce the risk of tuberculosis transmission which involves drawing a QuantiFERON lab test for TB on all applicants. 

Several of the components of the pre-hire assessment, including the urine drug screen (UDS), have time-sensitive requirements. Failure to complete the required testing within the timeline will result in a delay in the start of your orientation and/or clinical duties.

Your pre-hire assessment must be scheduled 10 business days prior to your start date. This information will be used in conjunction with the health assessment appointment prior to MCSGME orientation.

Important: Attending MCSGME orientation, starting your training program, and all patient contact will be prohibited until up-to-date immunization records are documented and the pre-employment drug screen/physical has been completed and results have been documented. Your appointment must be 10 business days prior to your first day of orientation.

As a condition of employment, Mayo Clinic requires all incoming trainees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, unless they obtain an approved exemption. Incoming trainees will be required to have at least one dose of the vaccine prior to starting their program with a second dose scheduled, submit proof of previous vaccination, or obtain an exemption from Mayo Clinic.

New trainees are subject to the same requirements and process as Mayo Clinic employees regarding the vaccination policy as a condition of their appointment. Occupational Health Services will review immunization records of all incoming trainees as part of the MCSGME onboarding process. Exemption forms will be available to appointed trainees when the onboarding process begins (generally three to four months prior to the program start). 

Exemptions (if requested) must be submitted within two weeks of receipt of the onboarding package. All approvals of exemptions must be received before the first day the appointment begins or the appointment will be rescinded. In the event that an incoming trainee is part of a formal match agreement and elects not to be vaccinated or obtain an exemption prior to the program start date, Mayo Clinic will submit a request for waiver of the match agreement to rescind the appointment with the appropriate organization.
