For All Education Majors
Tuberculosis (TB) TINE Test Instructions
Going to Personal Physician:
You may go to your personal physician to have your tuberculosis test taken. If the results of this test are recorded on Mansfield University's Health Evaluation Report, then simply photo copy the side of the form with the TB result and turn it into the Field Experience Office. Please note that every education major needs to have one of three tests (TB Tine, Mantoux, or PPD) to prove that they are negative for Tuberculosis. This requires that the form indicates the date that the test result was negative, the doctor's signature, and the student's name. Please pay special attention to this requirement as the form is misleading. The form may lead you to believe that you are not required to have the test taken, but all education majors must have the test taken and have proof of the results turned into the Field Experience Office. (See instructions below.)
Going to Campus Clinic in Spruce Hall:
You may visit the Campus Clinic in Spruce Hall to have your tuberculosis test taken. You should call 570-662-4350 in advance for an appointment.
