  • Will indicate her expected date of delivery
  • Will meet with the Radiation Physicist for appropriate counseling.
  • Will be assigned an additional “baby badge” and instructed in its use.
  • May requested maternity leave or leave of absence
  • Any requested absence from the program must be requested in writing according to the Program's Policies.
  • May withdraw the declaration, in writing, at any time.

In the absence of a voluntary written disclosure the student shall continue in the program unmodified.
