Medical screening process
Donor Qualification: Phase 2
When your pre-testing results are optimal and you have been psychologically cleared, the cycling doctor will want to meet you for the first time to conduct his own medical and genetic screening.
- If you live locally to the cycling doctor, we will work with the nurse coordinator to set up an appointment time for you to visit the doctor.
- If you live out of state from the cycling doctor, we have a travel agency that will assist in coordinating the travel arrangements for you.
The medical screening trip is typically a one day turn-around that may require an overnight stay. You will travel alone for this trip.
Screenings during this visit typically include medical/genetic tests, as well as blood draws for any sexually transmitted diseases, HIV, hepatitis, and drug/nicotine testing.
