Tuberculosis (TB)-Relevant Work Clearance

SMPH employees and affiliates who have face-to-face contact with UW Health patients or UW human research subjects are required to acquire and maintain clearance for tuberculosis (TB)-relevant work through UW Occupational Medicine.

Follow the instructions below to receive TB-relevant work clearance.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

1. Get Wiscard

If you haven’t already gotten your WisCard campus ID, you will need to do that first. You will not be able to use the UW Occupational Medicine system required in the following steps until you get your WisCard.

  1. Visit the WisCard office in Union South to get your WisCard campus ID

Note: While campus operations are limited for COVID-19, the WisCard office is open Mondays and Thursdays from 8:30am to 5pm.

2. Complete MyUHS Forms

After waiting at least one day after you pick up your WisCard, log in to MyUHS using your UW Madison NetID and then birthdate.

You will need to complete two forms and a TB risk assessment in MyUHS.

Occupational Medicine Forms

  1. Click on “Forms” in the left menu
    • You may need to click the menu button (three horizontal lines) in the top left corner to open the menu
  2. Fill out and submit forms:
    • OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE: 1. Privacy Notice and Consent to Treat – this form gives UW Occupational Medicine permission to provide you with necessary medical services
    • OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE: 2. Authorization for Release of Occupational Health Records – this form gives UW Occupational Medicine permission to distribute results of medical services within UW. SMPH will only receive confirmation that you have completed requirements to receive TB-relevant work clearance; we will not receive specific details about your medical services.

TB Risk Assessment Survey

  1. Click on “Messages” in the left menu
  2. Click the “New Message” button
  3. Click the “I am a UW Employee, Affiliate or Contract Worker” option
  4. Click the “Continue” button
  5. Click the “OM TB RISK ASSESSMENT” option
  6. Click the “Continue” button
  7. Fill out form and click the “Send” button

3. Notify SMPH HR Compliance

Once you have completed the forms and survey in MyUHS, you will need to send some final information.

Please send an email to SMPH HR Compliance with the following information:

  1. Confirmation that you have completed both forms and the TB Risk Assessment Survey in MyUHS
  2. Documentation of previous TB testing
    • If you have completed any TB testing in the past 12 months, you may upload your documentation instead of emailing it.
    • If you have not completed any TB testing in the past, please confirm that in your email.
