University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis (UHSP) has established this screening and targeted testing policy and protocol to help limit the spread of Tuberculosis (TB). The University conducts a screening survey of all newly hired faculty members prior to their first date of work to screen for increased TB risk and exposure, and to direct additional documentation or treatment, if necessary. Any individual identified to be at high risk for latent TB or for developing TB will be required to submit documentation of prior treatment or supply a negative TB test to UHSP and/or the clinical practice site. In the event of a positive TB test, the University will take appropriate action after consultation with the affected individual and health care professionals to protect the health and welfare of all stakeholders. This TB screening and testing policy will be administered consistent with the University's policies on equal opportunities and nondiscrimination.
