I am curious about what hospitals test for/look for during a physical exam after being offered a new grad position. I take meds for migraines. I just want to know what to expect ahead of time

You will undoubtedly have to provide a urine specimen for drug testing - standard procedure for all employees in health care. If you are on any that result in positive screen results, be sure to bring copies of your prescriptions or just bring the meds with you so they can document them.

Other stuff is just standard, vision screening may be required, including screen for color blindness; spinal (external) exam for gross deformity, vital signs -- the usual. Normal blood work (cbc) may include titers as proof of immunity especially if you are working around vulnerable populations.
