    If a candidate were to sustain an injury or major illness after they have been appointed, I assume they would need to let the academy and/or dodmerb know. How do they go about doing so? And then what happens?

    If you are injured or hospitalized after your initial exam, or if you failed to report any medical conditions during your exam, you should contact DoDMERB immediately. Failure to disclose can be grounds for separation. All incoming cadets/midshipmen must pass another medical exam shortly after reporting.

    Thanks for the reply. Nothing has happened. Just concerned as a new sports season starts, and the appointment has arrived, about the "what if" factor.
