Tuberculosis (TB) Screening

TB Screening and Surveillance Program

University Health Services manages the TB Screening and Surveillance Program for the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Baptist College of Health Sciences. The program, instituted in 1992, is charged with helping to ensure that all employees and students of the UTHSC and the students of BCHS are screened annually for tuberculosis exposure. The program also stresses patient education and inter-agency cooperation to control tuberculosis.

If you are an employee or student of The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, you are entitled to annual screening for tuberculosis. Call 901.448.5630 for more information about the TB Screening and Surveillance Program and to set up your appointment.

The student health fee covers the cost of screening for UTHSC and BCHS students. UTHSC employees who are at risk for exposure to TB should be determined by their department to receive annual TB screening. Employee departments will be charged for this screening.
