UT Health Services offers a full range of services to ensure that your employees are ready to work and are in compliance with relevant regulations. Services range from preplacement examinations, required immunizations, routine exposure exams, to worker’s compensation-related services, and more.

Preplacement/Post-Offer Examinations


Our experts can conduct preplacement/post-offer examinations after a contingent job offer is made to determine if a job candidate has the physical capabilities to safely meet the specific demands of a job. These examinations are appropriate for jobs with written descriptions of the physical or psychological demands of the essential job duties and may be mandated for some positions.

Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Management

Employees who have experienced a needlestick or other potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens need prompt evaluation to determine whether medication is needed to prevent transmission of infection. We prioritize these urgent evaluations to provide timely post-exposure HIV prophylaxis if indicated. We also perform indicated lab testing, Hepatitis B immunizations, and follow-up as per the OSHA standard. 


Mandated and Exposure-Specific Examinations


These examinations are required under specific circumstances in accordance with regulations by OSHA or other government agencies. We provide periodic exposure-related examinations to monitor the health of your employees who are exposed to hazardous materials or working conditions, such as asbestos, lead, silica, or noise. We can also perform mandated examinations to ensure your employees meet specific medical criteria for their jobs. 

Law Enforcement Physical Exams

Law Enforcement personnel must meet certain medical standards for employment. These standards may vary by employer and job type. The Texas Commission on Law Enforcement will require an L-2 form be filled out to ensure the candidate has undergone a medical exam to ensure the candidate is physically sound and free from any issues that might adversely affect the performance of their duties depending on the type of license sought. Federal law enforcement may require certain clinical laboratory tests. UT Health Services is able to provide any and all services needed for these exams.


Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Commercial Driver Examinations

Commercial drivers must meet strict medical requirements to obtain a commercial license. The FMCSA, under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), requires this examination to be completed by a certified medical examiner. UT Health Services has DOT-certified examiners in the office every day of the work week.


Treatment for Workplace Injuries or Illnesses


We are experts in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating complex work injuries and illnesses. We carefully analyze and document information about work causation or contribution, evaluate the involved employee’s past and current work tasks, and review hazards both at work and outside of work. With the explicit goal of a return to optimal function, we collaborate with the employee and the employer in planning return to work. We can provide case management with skilled RN staff and will work with your designated workers’ compensation insurance carrier to ensure that each case is correctly documented and billed.

  • Examinations for Work Capacity (ADA, FMLA, etc.)

    Fitness-for-duty examinations may be requested to determine an employee’s physical or mental ability to perform essential job duties. Triggers for these examinations include prolonged medical leave from work, threat of workplace violence, suspected substance abuse, or request for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

  • Second Opinion Examinations

    These examinations are used to address questions about appropriateness of treatment, work capacity, work causation, or duration of disability. We provide second opinion examinations when the workers’ compensation or disability insurance system needs an opinion other than that of the treating provider.

  • Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs)

    Our expert physicians conduct IMEs to provide an objective assessment to help answer specific legal or administrative questions about the health of an employee. These examinations can address degree of work disability, prognosis for improvement, or need for additional treatment. IMEs typically involve reviewing medical documentation, performing and documenting a careful examination, and conducting thoughtful analysis of specific questions.

  • Testing for Drugs and Alcohol

    When an employment decision may be made based on the results of a urine drug test, that test must be properly collected using required chain of custody and tested in accordance with the law and employer policies. We can provide in-clinic collection, testing, and results reporting.
