UPDATE: If you are officially accepted to the program, you will be required to be fully vaccinated OR have a medical or religious exemption. If you choose to not receive the vaccination, you are advised that not all local hospitals will accept religious or medical exemptions from students (e.g. Adventist, BFMC, and BHH). We fully expect the rest to follow suit soon. Should this happen and you are assigned to a clinical facility that does not accept an exemption, and you are not vaccinated; you will not be able to attend clinical. Therefore, you risk not meeting course objectives and progression in the program.
