    Drug Screening

    Advertisements



    Hello all,

    I know most of you will think is a stupid question but my future is on the line and I was wondering when AUC drug screens their Matriculants if entering in January 2014.

    Are you tested in your current location prior to moving to St. Maarten, or are you tested when you arrive?

    I'm new to all this, and I appreciate your help and kindness.

    Thank guys!

    This is a direct quote from the request for background check I received from AUC yesterday.

    "PLEASE NOTE: If you are a clinical student, you will be required to complete a criminal background check and a 7-panel drug screen"

    You're not screened as you come onto the island, at least when I started. But remember, you're a medical student now, meaning someday you will be a doctor.

    And you will get drug tested as you enter clinical rotations as many hospitals require drug screening.

    When are you matriculating / When do you think you will be tested?

    I am hoping to matriculate for the January 2014 class. I have an interview with Ross and AUC next week(I submitted my apps last Sunday), and am hoping to hear back from Saba soon. Based on that was written in the request for a background check, I don't foresee undergoing the 7 panel drug screen until I am preparing to enter clinicals.

    I was tested during clinical rotations.

    But, come on. Are you really going to base where you are going to school on when you are going to have to be drug tested?

    So, I don't care what you do in your free time, but, you are trying to become a doctor. People are going to start holding you to a higher standard, even if you don't agree with that higher standard that is what people are going to start expecting from you.

    Anyway, good luck with everything.

    If you have to ask a question like this, you should really rethink your decision to become a doctor.

    Why is that? What does OP asking that question have to do with his decision to become a doctor?
    OP asked is a perfectly legitimate question.
