Health Services provides routine primary care services such as sick visits, physical exams, immunizations, emergency contraceptive pills, and STI/HIV treatment of urinary tract infections and other infections. In addition, we specialize in diagnosing and treating health problems common to college students, managing certain chronic conditions, and consulting about health issues. Finally, we encourage and promote healthy student behaviors through our Self-Care Center.
Clinical services are provided by a licensed physician and licensed nurse practitioners (for more information on staff degrees and job positions, visit our What Do Those Degrees Mean? page). Similar to a primary care provider's office, Health Services clinicians may refer for more specialized diagnostic services (such as x-ray) or treatment. Health Services does not provide emergency treatment and thus does not take the place of a hospital or emergency room in the case of a potentially life-threatening condition.
We believe there is more to creating a healthy campus than just taking care of sick students--i.e., wellness programs and Health Promotion are an important part of the services we offer to the campus, and we work closely with our colleagues in Counseling Services as well.
