HCG and Drug testing

I am getting ready to begin an internship at a hospital and know that I will be drug tested. Does HCG show up on a drug screening and how long can it be detected in your system for?

Good questions! I'm not really sure how it will show up on a hospital drug test, but I would suspect if it did, that they would suspect you would be pregnant and not taking it for a diet.  The hcg should only stay in your system for 48 to 72 hours.
That being said, I know of one baseball player that was taking it in high doses and was tested for hormones/steroids and was suspended for using hcg. (athletes who take steroids often use hcg to counter the effects of the steroids)
