    Drug Testing Before Clinicals?

    Advertisements



    Hello All

    I have recently heard from a few of my US school colleagues that their medical schools drug test prior to starting clinicals. I have been searching but can not find this mentioned anywhere in sgu, I was wondering what people's experience has been with this and if anyone currently doing clinicals for an sgu affiliated hospital was drug tested?

    thanks

    We were sent an email from SGU stating to expect drug testing anywhere at anytime during clinicals when I first started clinicals.

    Ross does it when you start up in the US for 5th semester. Also hospitals have been known to do their own testing regardless of passing Ross' test. Basically stop smoking the Ganja and you'll be fine

    You can expect to be under surveillance for the rest of your professional career so might as well stop now. Unless you want someone else to take your (potential) residency spot.

    A number of the hospitals drug test, and they *can* at any time.

    I am sorry but your post has been up for over a day and only TDM (timisdaman) seems to be blunt with you.

    Do you have a drug problem? Do you do drugs? Are you afraid of being kicked out of rotations cause you have a drug problem? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then you have a problem. STOP and get help. Even if it is just smoking marijuana and can't seem to stop it.

    I really wish the selection criteria for some med schools was more than just $$$$$.

    I thought "Stop smoking the Ganja and you'll be alright" was blunt enough....not so much? haha

    If you go to the pre-clinical meetings in term 4/5 then you should definitely hear it by then. I know at least some of the NYC hospitals test (I presume all of the HHC) because I was tested for my 1 rotation in the city early 4th year.
    I finally have my long white coat, and it is stinky...
