SOM, TMC schedule TB tests, flu shots for students

All School of Medicine students in years three through six are required to receive an annual TB test before working with patients at the Truman Medical Center Clinics. Though not mandatory, TMC Occupational Health is also strongly encouraging students to receive flu shots.

In an effort to meet the requirement, TMC Occupational Health and the School of Medicine have set up scheduled times for students by class year to make one stop to receive both a TB test and a flu shot.

No appointments are necessary but students should show up during the scheduled time for their class. Students unable to get the test and flu shot at their scheduled time should contact TMC Occupational Health at 816-404-2770 to schedule an individual time.

Scheduled times are:

  • Year 4 students — Tuesday, Oct. 23, 10 a.m. – noon, room M4-C05. TB test results available Oct. 25, 10 a.m. – noon, room M4-C05.
  • Year 5 students — Tuesday, Oct. 30, 10 a.m. – noon, room M4-C05. TB test results available Oct. 25, 10 a.m. – noon, room M5-C05.
  • Years 3 and 6 students — Tuesday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m. – noon, room M4-CO5. TB test results available Nov. 8, 10 a.m. – noon, room M4-C05.
