University Health Services checks students every year for tuberculosis to make sure they don't become infected. How they do this depends on where you grew up, where you've traveled and some additional factors. Most students will start by having a "two step" skin test which the Health Service will administer at KSUCPM. After this first test, you will only need a single test every year.
