Tufts Medical Center's Employee Health Services has agreed to provide a monthly TB Skin Test Clinic for students. An email will be sent with clinic information every month.
The clinic is for students who are in need of a TB Skin Test, due in the near future or overdue.
TB testing is an annual requirement for all Dental, Medical, PA and Nutrition Students that have tested negative in the past. Students who have a history of a past positive TB Skin Test are not required to do additional testing.
The TB Skin Test Clinic will be held at Tufts Medical Center's Employee Health - 6th Floor of the Farnsworth wing of the hospital
Students will be required return to TMC's Employee Health two days after their test is planted to have it read.
The out of pocket cost of the test is $25 cash. Employee Health does not offer third party billing. Be sure to bring your Tufts ID.
