Graduating 4th and 5th Year Medical Students

Graduating 4th- and 5th- year medical students who need TB testing should message Courtney Holzheimer through to request a lab requisition for a T-spot. The requisition will be sent to you as an attachment to a secure message. Please print the attachment and bring both it and your insurance information to a lab for testing. 

When you send a message requesting an order for the T-spot test, please include the following information: 

  • Laboratory name and location (see below) 
  • Anticipated date of T-spot test

Results of T-spot testing are generally reported back within 1-2 weeks. Please note that test results may be delayed due to the current health emergency. 

Laboratory Names and Locations 

Quest Diagnostics: 

Please check the Quest website for convenient locations and call about hours, which are subject to change with the COVID 19 outbreak. A T-spot must be drawn by 1pm because it is shipped to a specialty lab for testing.

University Hospitals of Cleveland: 

Check the UH website for lab service locations. We suggest calling ahead to confirm hours of operation and the lab's ability to collect specimen for T-spot test at your chosen location.

Other laboratories: 

You are welcome to use any lab you like for your testing. However, you will be responsible for uploading your results from any other lab to for review.
