It’s the time of year for all PGY-2s through PGY-4s to complete their annual health review. This is due by July 31, and consists of:

  1. Completion of the health questionnaire. This is available at the WHS clinics or online
  2. Medical surveillance testing; PPD will be planted and read 2-3 days later. Please note PPDs planted on Thursdays require outside readings.
  3. Respiratory fit testing
