Employee Health Services

Employee Health Services provides a wide range of health and safety services to both university and health system employees. In addition to new employee screening for those who require it, our team provides clinical guidance and support to current employees and university departments with work-related and general health concerns, injuries, or exposures. Preventative care such as flu and COVID-19 vaccinations are available to employees.

We also work collaboratively with other VCU and VCU Health schools and departments to provide consultation with HR regarding FMLA-related and job performance issues, as well as presentations of safety and injury prevention, stress management, workplace violence prevention, and other workplace health and safety information.
