Our Services

Employee Health provides services to all paid Yale University employees, including:

  • Work related illness, injury or exposure
  • Immunizations as required for employment by the University
  • Medical surveillance
  • Evaluation of potential communicable disease in healthcare workers
  • Confidential HIV testing for healthcare workers
  • Clearance and evaluation of employees who handle animals in the workplace
  • Consultation and examination of employees who handle hazardous materials
  • Clearance and evaluation for emergency responders, police, and security as required for employment by the University
  • CDL license clearance as required for employment by the University (CDL appointments must be scheduled by the supervisor of the employee)
  • physical exams after job offers*
  • fitness for duty exams*

*This service is provided to employees who are identified by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) as requiring special medical evaluation due to exposure to potentially hazardous substances or to fulfill regulatory requirements. Examples of this may be respirator users, Hearing Conservation Program participants, animal handlers, and researchers using certain infectious agents.

Work Related Injuries

A University employee who has an accident on the job must first report it to his/her supervisor (unless a true emergency exists).

Supervisors must complete an Online First Report of Injury Form, which will be sent to Worker’s Compensation and assigned a claim number.

Employees with a work-related injury are encouraged to call the Employee Health Department to arrange an evaluation.

Employees needing immediate treatment may be referred to the Acute Care Department; otherwise they will be given a time to be seen in the Employee Health Department.

An employee with an existing injury which requires additional treatment should first contact the Worker’s Compensation office to determine where they should be treated.
