Occupational Health Program for Exposure to Animals – for Reynolda Campus

The occupational health program is designed to protect both you and animal populations. Your specific medical requirements in the program depend upon the species of animal involved. Often times the only requirements are an annual test for TB and completion of a questionnaire about your allergies.

WF Baptist Medical Center Employee Health Services will inform you by email of your requirements, based on the information provided about you in the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee protocol.

There are different options for completing the medical requirements and communicating with WF Baptist Medical Center Employee Health Services, depending upon whether you are faculty/staff or a student/trainee. Be aware that some options may include out of pocket expenses.
