    Vendor Requirements for Sponsor Studies:

    If your study requires a Sponsor onsite visit at Tampa General Hospital (TGH), TGH requires the following:

    • The Sponsor Representative must either have their flu shot or wear a mask during flu season; and
    • The Sponsor Representative must be escorted throughout TGH facilities at all times.

    It is the responsibility of the research team to ensure compliance with the above request.

    Tampa General Hospital (TGH) requires Sponsor Representatives to go through vendor credentialing and obtain a vendor badge if the Sponsor Representative will be performing tasks in patient care areas (e.g. programing device in the operating room).
