Fork Union Military Academy's Infirmary works to meet cadets’ health-related needs. The infirmary has a Registered Nurse available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, whenever cadets are on campus. The nurse on duty distributes prescribed medications, assesses, and treats cadet illnesses and injuries, and maintains close contact with the athletic training staff and an Academy physician. The physician is available every weekday morning during “sick call” and is easily accessible after hours for emergencies. Whenever necessary, the physician and nursing staff make referrals to specialists, and the Academy staff provides transportation to nearby hospitals.
The infirmary staff communicates closely with cadets’ guardians regarding health issues, and ensures cadet immunizations and vaccinations are up-to-date. Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs) are available in nine central locations on campus, and the infirmary staff, athletic training staff, and various department heads and faculty have been trained for their use.
