Annual TB Screening for Professional Students
* SHCS will no longer sponsor off-site TB screening events. All students should present at either clinic (Mission Bay or Parnassus) for TB screening prior to the expiration of their current screening.
How do I know if my TB screening is expiring?
You can check when you are due for screening on MyHealthRecord.ucsf.edu in the Immunization section. SHCS will also be sending reminder emails around the time you are due for screening.
When should I come to SHCS for my screening?
Come to SHCS PRIOR to your screening expiring. The cut-off for placing TB skin tests is 4:30pm – this means you should arrive BEFORE 4:30pm to have you test placed by 4:30. To minimize waits, consider avoiding the lunch hour. SHCS staff take lunches around the lunch hour which leaves fewer staff to assist with TB skin test placements and could mean longer waits.
What if my TB screening expires and I haven’t come in?
Students with expired TB screening will continue to have a registration hold. In addition, SHCS will notify the schools monthly of which students are out-of-compliance.
Is there anything else I should know about getting my TB skin test placed or read?
Yes. TB skin tests aren’t placed on Thursdays since the reading would need to occur on a Saturday or Sunday when SHCS is closed. TB skin test readings can be done at Parnassus until 6:45pm on Mondays and Mission Bay until 6:45pm on Wednesdays.
