    I was hospitalized in a psychiatric unit and failed their drug tests. Will an EMT job request my medical records? Also, what other jobs could possibly request my medical records?

    You'd have to ask the particular employer if your medical records would be required. Any employer might ask you for those records, though it's more likely in some occupations than in others.
