University Health Services coordinates the employee flu shot program offered in the fall semester. UW employees are notified by email when the clinics have been scheduled at locations around campus.
Occupational Medicine provides medical response plans and specific clinical services for UW–Madison employees, students in designated courses, and affiliates based on eligibility. Services include specific pre- and post-exposures, immunizations, clinical laboratory tests, regulatory reviews and medical clearances; help employees find providers for routine workplace services not offered at UHS: urgent and emergency care, musculoskeletal injuries, fitness for duty.
University Health Services does not provide excuses for short-term absences from class or missed deadlines due to acute illness or mental health appointment. This long-standing policy helps us direct our finite resources toward patient care and reflects our respect for students’ privacy.
Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) help assure campus spaces are safe and healthy for those who learn, live, work and visit. Environmental Health has state-delegated authority for food, lodging, pools, and youth camps, and has shared regulatory responsibilities for monitoring water and indoor air. Occupational Health supports research, academic and operational compliance through exposure assessment, personal protective equipment (PPE) use, training, and ergonomics.
