If there is the concern of a substance abuse issue, the positive result will be sent to the Director of Student Affairs who will forward it to the Physician/Student Wellness committee for evaluation. The student will not be eligible to participate in clinical activities until the issue has been addressed (see Impaired Medical Student policy). A medical student may request retesting of his/her original sample within five days of being notified of a positive result by contacting the laboratory.  The medical student is responsible for the cost of retesting.
