Medical Amnesty Policy: FAQ

Student safety is paramount at the University of Florida (UF). UF is committed to promoting a safe and healthy environment for all Students/Student Organizations and working to ensure the well-being of our community remains at the forefront of all decisions. Gators care for one another. Possible medical emergencies involving alcohol and/or other substances can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention. The top priority in any emergency situation must be to request and receive necessary help as quickly as possible from on-duty individual(s), trained to provide the appropriate response. Therefore, UF designed a Medical Amnesty Policy to encourage Students/Student Organizations to make prompt responsible decisions in lieu of jeopardizing the health and safety of others due to concern for possible disciplinary action.
