Drug Screen Procedures

The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal Opportunity Institution

DRUG SCREEN PROCEDURES

Some sites require a drug screen before you can complete a rotation in their institution. It is your responsibility to contact (call or email) the rotation site 30 days prior to your start date to verify if a drug screen or any additional documentation is required. Note that some sites request a drug screen done no earlier than 30 days prior to your starting date. Noncompliance or “tardy” compliance is a positive test!

If a drug screen is required:

  1. Log in to Certiphi Screening using Internet Explorer (https://www.applicationstation.com/home/home_new.asp).
  2. Refer to your email from Certiphi for your passcode.
  3. Payment is handled on line.
  4. For a listing of collection sites, visithttp://www.cop.ufl.edu/education/student-affairs/academics/drug-collection-sites/
  5. You do not need a Labcorp Lab appointment, but be sure to check hours of operation as these vary by location and most are not open on weekends or evenings.
  6. Take to Labcorp:
    • 6-Digit Code (provided to you after payment submitted online).
    • Photo ID (i.e. driver’s license). UF ID will most likely not be accepted as sufficient ID.
  7. E-mail the appropriate person (see below) the name and contact information for the person(s) who needs the results of your drug screen. The College of Pharmacy will receive your confidential results and will forward on to the appropriate contact at the rotation site.
