About the Student-Employee Health Office

Student/Employee Health Office (SEHO) Goals

  1. To support the physical well-being of all students and employees.
  2. To work cooperatively with the Colleges to ensure student health clearance requirements are being met.
  3. To establish and maintain employee health records in compliance with local, state, and federal regulations.

The SEHO provides the following services:

  • Provides orders for select serum blood titers, tuberculosis tests, and immunizations.
  • Review and signs off on rotations health clearance forms. It will take 10 business days to complete this process.
  • Monitors employees whose jobs require health screening and surveillance, e.g., employees who work in patient care delivery or in certain types of research.
  • Coordinates monitoring for bloodborne pathogen exposures.
  • Provides information on communicable and infectious disease in accordance with the WHO, CDC, State of California, State of Oregon, and local public health offices.

Information will not be released without the expressed consent of the individual except for legal subpoenas and for some communicable diseases, which by law must be reported to the Department of Public Health, e.g. bloodborne pathogen exposure that converts to a positive Hepatitis B.
