Pre-Employment Health Assessment

Welcome to University of Maryland Medical Center. Congratulations on becoming a resident or fellow. Prior to beginning work at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), you will need a pre-placement health evaluation.

Scheduling Your Pre Placement Health Evaluation

  • You have the option of conducting a remote evaluation or an onsite evaluation within Employee Health. We strongly encourage you to select a remote evaluation. This is especially true if you live out of state. Remote evaluations do not require an appointment.
  • A remote evaluation involves sending all of the required forms, immunization records and TB screening results to An RN will review the documents and will respond. A 'Quest passport' for a urine drug screen (uds) and instruction for next steps will be sent back to you as long as the required information for the uds has been provided (see below).
  • If you require an onsite evaluation, the LATEST the evaluation can be completed is two weeks prior to your start date. Please do not wait to schedule your onsite visit as these appointments fill up quickly. Please schedule your onsite appointment by calling 410-328-6151. For onsite evaluations, plan about one hour in your schedule to complete the pre-placement evaluation process. The urine drug screen may take up to 3 hours if you are unable to immediately provide a specimen.

Regardless of whether you are requesting an onsite appointment or a remote evaluation, we ask that you send us all of the "health evaluation components" as listed below prior to your appointment to based on the start date deadlines listed below. When sending the required documents, please indicate whether you are requesting an onsite appointment or a remote evaluation.

  • If you are currently actively employed by UMMC but changing programs, you do not require a pre placement health evaluation. If you are uncertain about this, please call Krisna Hall 443-462-3982.
