Students who are required to complete a drug test for their application for an away rotation (non-UW) through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) have the option of completing a drug test through the SOM's vendor, Castlebranch. The SOM will receive the results from this drug test. The SOM can verify drug testing compliance on VSAS only if the drug test is done through the SOM. The SOM cannot verify results unless the drug test is completed through the Castlebranch portal below.

The UWSOM will indicate compliance with drug testing on your Evalue Personal Records tab. We will enter the date of the drug test. The expiration will be one year later. We will not upload the report to Evalue in order to protect your privacy.
Process for positive results for prescribed medications
If there is a positive result for a prescribed medication/s, a Castlebranch "Medical Review Officer" will be in touch with you and ask for documentation of your prescription. Once the review is completed, the results will be reported as negative and the UWSOM will not have any information about your medication/s.
You can receive a full refund as long as you cancel your order PRIOR to the collection.
