Employee Background Checks—Medical Campus

Boston University takes great pride in the quality of people we hire. To ensure that we maintain a safe and productive educational environment, the University conducts background checks on all prospective employees. Background checks differ for each position and department; please review what’s required.

Employment References & Degree Verifications

Hiring managers can conduct employment reference checks themselves, or they may contact Human Resources to request assistance with this process. Human Resources will conduct past employment verification and academic credential verification for each final candidate.

Criminal Background Check (CORI)

A criminal background check is required for all positions within Facilities, Security, and other designated areas. During the interview process, applicants will be informed of the background check and asked to sign a CORI authorization form.

Pre-placement Physical

Candidates requiring a pre-placement physical will be identified based on the information contained in the Risk Assessment portion of the PS-1. Your designated recruiter will make proper arrangements to set up a pre-placement physical. All pre-placement physicals are conducted by the BUMC Occupational Health Center.

Boston University covers the full cost of the physical screenings, and all results are confidential.
