Bereavement Policy

The Medical School considers bereavement a valid reason to postpone required course-related activities. The Medical School does not have a standard amount of time permitted for immediate family-related bereavement and understands that each student’s situation is unique. Students experiencing or anticipating bereavement should contact the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and their course coordinators, preferably in advance of missing any required course activity.
