Purpose:  The Committee was established to review the findings of criminal background checks conducted on all accepted applicants and alternates to the College of Medicine.  The Committee consists of two components:  1) the Preliminary Review Committee (PRC) that will review initial criminal background check findings to determine whether a report should be referred to the full committee for review, and 2) the Criminal Background Check Review Committee (CBCRC) that will consider any and all adverse findings of a criminal background check.  The CVCRC will vote to make a recommendation to the Admissions Committee Chair whether to rescind a conditional offer of acceptance or to dismiss a conditionally accepted applicant.
