Medical Leave and Medical Furlough

Medical Leaves and Medical Furloughs are coordinated through the VMI Health Center. A Medical Leave or Medical Furlough is recommended when a cadet's health or mental health condition significantly impairs his or her own ability to function successfully or safely as a cadet.

It is expected that the time a cadet takes away from VMI is used for treatment and recovery. The VMI Health Center provides each cadet with specific expectations for treatment while on leave or furlough. Please see General Order No. 61-Medical Furlough and Medical Leave Policy below for additional details.

Questions about medical leave and medical furlough should be directed to the VMI Health Center, 540-464-7218..
