Order and pay for your drug screen through Certiphi Screening (independent from criminal background check – you will need to create a new account). Take the clinic authorization form and chain of custody form with you to an approved site for urine collection. T he School of Pharmacy does NOT need a copy of either form.  Both forms will be provided at the Meet & Greet or mailed to you via postal mail if you are unable to attend.

July 15

Upload certification of immunity into MyRecordTracker.  All vaccination records and test results must be certified by a healthcare provider, including the healthcare provider’s signature, name, and clinic information (either on official letterhead or marked with the clinic seal).

  • MMR (measles / mumps / rubella)
    • 2 live vaccinations.  An additional rubella titer may be required by some hospitals before you can complete pharmacy practice experiences at their site.
  • Polio (oral or injection; 3 doses)
  • PPD – tuberculosis (intradermal Mantoux Tuberculin Skin Test; patch test not accepted)
    • If you have record of a PPD conducted between August 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014, you should have a 1-step PPD conducted between May 1 and July 8, 2014.  Records of both tests must be uploaded in MyRecordTracker.
    • If you do NOT have record of a PPD conducted between August 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014, you should have a 2-step PPD conducted between May 1 and July 8, 2014.
    • Please note that you must have your TB skin-test verified by a healthcare professional by July 15, therefore you must be tested by July 8 for the results to be submitted by the deadline.  Pharmacy experiential sites require TB tests be completed within 6 months to 1 year, therefore you should have your TB test completed between May 1 – July 8.
    • If you have a positive TB skin test, you will be required to demonstrate that you are negative for TB via a chest X-ray.  If you have a history of BCG vaccination, you may choose an Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) instead of a TB skin test.
  • DPT (diphtheria / pertussis / tetanus)
    • If you had your last tetanus vaccine before May 15, 2008, you will be required to get a booster before July 15, 2014.
  • Varicella (chicken pox)
    • Proof of immunity must be demonstrated via a varicella titer.  If the titer is negative, then you must also provide documentation of vaccination by July 15, 2014.
  • Hepatitis B
    • Hepatitis B vaccination is a 3-shot series; the 2nd dose is administered 1 month after the initial dose and the 3rd dose is administered 6 months after the initial dose.
    • Documentation of at least 1 shot is required by July 15, 2014.  All 3 doses must be completed by January 1, 2015.
    • If you started but did not complete the 3-dose series, you should check for immunity via a hepatitis B titer and upload the results of the titer.  If the titer is negative, you must start the vaccination series over and document administration of at least 1 dose before July 15, 2014.
