Student Health Services

Helping keep you healthy.

Keeping yourself healthy is key to an optimum college experience. Student Health Services is a full-service primary care clinic attending students who are ill or have other health concerns they want to address and includes:

  • a full-time staff of board-certified nurse practitioners
  • a board-certified internal medicine physician available for consult or appointments as needed
  • referrals to other local physician specialists as necessary

Services we offer

  • Evaluation and treatment by a nurse practitioner for the full spectrum of primary health care concerns such as upper respiratory tract infections, dermatologic disorders, urinary tract infections, and acute injuries
  • In-office laboratory tests such as rapid strep and flu screening
  • Lab orders and specimen collection for diagnostic tests sent to outside labs
  • Gynecologic and family-planning services
  • Sports physicals
  • Immunizations
  • Blood-pressure monitoring
  • Wound care and minor laceration repair
  • Mental health and counseling services referrals
  • Health information materials
  • The most common medications and supplies needed for college students

Services we cannot offer include overnight inpatient care, long-term follow-up for chronic medical problems, immunotherapy (allergy injections), eye examinations, and dental services.

Office visits to Student Health Services are free but special services such as laboratory tests, prescription medicines, and visits to private physicians, clinics, or emergency rooms will be billed to the student, who can submit charges to his or her health insurance company for reimbursement.
