Before orientation, you're required to complete an occupational health assessment with Employee Health at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida. This includes an occupational health history and assessment, drug screening, blood tests (if needed), and tuberculosis surveillance.
Your occupational health assessment must be completed no later than the Wednesday before your start date. Failure to complete your appointment in this time frame may delay your program.
Arrange your appointment by calling Employee Health at 904-953-2431. Appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. You may want to consider combining this appointment with your house-hunting trip. Employee Health is located in Room 130 North in the Vincent A. Stabile Building, which is behind Mayo's complex of clinical buildings.
Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. You may choose to park in lots E1, E2, E3, E4, E5 or E6 — refer to this parking map for detailed locations. Additionally, please complete the required forms prior to your appointment, as your actual appointment will take about 30 to 45 minutes.
