Our placement facilities require proof of a negative Criminal Background Check (CBC) prior to beginning your placement rotations.  If you have a positive CBC for an incident of any sort that appears on your CBC, they reserve the right to refuse you placement at their facility, due to their own legal concerns regarding patient safety.  Also, an increasing number of facilities are requiring that all interns have a negative urinary drug screening test.  We have contracted with a local facility for this testing for our DI interns.  The cost to each intern is currently $43.  Again, you will need to have this done shortly before your placement is scheduled to begin and the DI Director will have to confirm to the facility site director that you have a negative drug test result in order for you to be placed at one of those facilities.  If you are not able to meet these conditions and, consequently not be placed for one or more of your required rotations, you will not be able to complete the DI program.
