Biopath Program

BioPath is the Biohazards Medical Monitoring Program required for all those working with risk group 3 agents in a BSL3 or ABSL3 laboratory at UF.

Vendors, contractors, visitors, and maintenance personnel entering non-decontaminated BSL3/ABSL3 areas must enroll in BioPath and renew on an annual basis.

Enrollment in the BioPath Program includes respirator clearance but does not exempt an individual from the need for enrollment in the Animal Contact Medical Monitoring Program

It is the responsibility of the supervisor or Principal Investigator to ensure that persons requiring participation in the biohazard medical monitoring program do so and complete and submit the forms. The supervisor acknowledges and signs the enrollment (authorization) form.


  • The Department, supervisor, or employee completes the Biohazard Medical Monitoring Form and submits it to the Biosafety Office at
  • Once reviewed and approved by the Biosafety Office, the EH&S OccMed Coordinator will contact the employee with specific instructions on how to complete the Biohazard Medical Assessment Questionnaire, how to complete the Clinic Authorization Form, and how to schedule an appointment with UF’s authorized clinic (if applicable). Initial enrollment requires a physical exam. Renewals generally do not require a physical exam unless the employee’s health status or the scope of work has changed.
  • If applicable, the employee attends scheduled physical exam and brings the completed Biohazard Medical Assessment Questionnaire and Clinic Authorization Form.
  • The clinic will communicate clearance status to EH&S OccMed Coordinator and results are entered into PeopleSoft. The employee can track status of clearances in myUFL by clicking on Menu > My Self Service > Personal Information > UF Health Assessment
  • The OccMed Coordinator will refer the employee for respirator fit testing as needed. Employee must complete the appropriate respirator training through MyTraining prior to attending the fit test appointment.
