All interns must pass a background investigation as a condition of employment with UC SOM.

In addition, we abide by Children’s Hospital policy related to drug screening for JFK Interns. Interns must complete a 10-panel drug screen (i.e., Barbiturates, Cocaine, MDA, Methaqualone, Propoxyphene, Amphetamines, Benzodiazepines, Methadone, Opiates, Marijuana).The company that completes the drug screen is responsible for documenting if the drug screen is a pass or fail. A non-employee’s refusal to consent to a drug screening will result in the immediate discontinuation of the assignment. Non-employees who test positive for drugs that are illegal under any federal, state or local law are subject to termination of the assignment and are not eligible to perform work at Children’s Hospital Colorado for a 12-month period following a positive drug screening.
