Smoking Policy

Bryan Medical Center and Bryan College of Health Sciences have a tobacco-free policy. Tobacco products include cigarettes, pipes, or cigars – and in any smokeless form. Also included are substitute items such as clove cigarettes, electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes), etc.

Use of tobacco products is not permitted in the College or on the campus. This includes inside and outside of our buildings, all parking garages, lots and all grounds of our main and ancillary buildings. The procedure applies to all individuals including students, patients, visitors, employees, volunteers, medical staff members, and tenants. The one exception is patients of the Independence Center. Use of tobacco products is prohibited in personal vehicles when on Bryan property.

Students are expected to adhere to smoking policies of their off-site classroom or clinical experience sites.
