Health Services

Health Services offers confidential medical care to Geneseo students. This care is similar to the services received from your primary care provider (PCP) at home. Our goal is to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle both at Geneseo and beyond. Our experienced healthcare professionals are highly qualified to provide a wide range of primary care services. We strive to make our services accessible and equitable to all students. Most services for enrolled students are covered by your Student Health Fee
