The physician and/or nurse will make calls in the resi-
dence halls when the student is confined to his room
for illness. A fee will be charged for dormitory calls
made at times other than the scheduled clinical
hours. In those cases of a more serious nature or

home or to be admitted to the hospital. On such occa-
sions, the student is asked to present a certificate
from the attending physician upon returning to the

mester, provides hospital care, surgical treatment,
and other medical services. The benefits of the policy

students are charged $1.00 for each request.

campus for all students and must be registered with
the College Operations Office. During registration,
resident students may purchase an annual $10
