MEDICAL STUDENT EXTERNSHIP

Section 1

MEDICAL STUDENT EXTERNSHIP

Medical school students looking to pursue an externship are sometimes required to have a respirator fit-test prior to coming to the new institution.  The Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) office has the equipment to perform the fit-test.

To access this EH&S-sponsored benefit, you must first submit to a medical evaluation.  Complete the “Respirator Medical Questionnaire (Appendix E)” to initiate the evaluation. Submit the completed form to UCI EH&S Occupational Health Coordinator at occhlth@uci.edu.

You may register for a fit-test AFTER you receive the medical clearance statement from the medical evaluator.  Fit-test appointments are made through www.uclc.uci.edu
