4. Health screenings

The Ochsner Clinical School has established mandatory procedures and immunizations that must be met by all of our students before they may participate in any clinical program or activity. All Ochsner Cohort students entering Year 3 are required to undergo health screenings during orientation and onboarding, prior to beginning any clinical rotation. Students will be randomly assigned for health screenings for Wednesday and Thursday, January 3 & 4, 2018. Students will be notified of their assigned date and time once the Student Health Screening Schedule is finalized.

The following tests will be conducted:

  • Drug Screening (Photo ID required)
  • TB Test (QuantiFERON Gold)
  • Flu Shot
  • DTap (Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis) - if needed
  • Mask Fitting (Men should shave for mask fitting)
  • Color Vision

Professional attire is required as professional photo headshots will be taken during this time. Please plan accordingly and dress appropriately. All men must wear ties.
