Health Services

Most services listed below, are covered by your Student Health Fee

  • Diagnosis and treatment provided by a physician, nurse practitioner, or registered nurse for common medical illnesses including:
    • Colds, sore throats, ear aches, stomach upsets, sprained ankles, and urinary complaints.
  • Care for students with more chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and eating disorders.
  • Diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and non-symptomatic testing.
  • In-house lab tests such as strep testing, mono testing, urinalysis, and pregnancy testing.
  • More extensive blood and other laboratory tests will be drawn at the Health Center and sent to our outside laboratory facility for processing. Students' insurance information will be sent along with the lab samples for billing or can be billed to your Student Account.
    • Students are responsible for charges incurred if not using insurance or if their insurance does not cover the test.
  • Immunizations for MMR (measles-mumps-rubella), Tdap, Influenza, and Hepatitis B. 
  • Emergency Contraception Pill.
  • Medications. A limited number of medications are carried by the Student Health Service.
  • Referrals to specialists and/or hospitals as needed. (Students are responsible for charges incurred.)
  • 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.
  • In support of the Geneseo Study Abroad office, Health Services provides Travel Medicine clinical services to students via our Campus Community Resource Nurse (CCRN). Students may obtain immunizations, including Hepatitis A and B vaccines, Td, and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). Oral Typhoid Vaccine may also be provided by prescription only.
    • Please note that immunizations are administered following the guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control on Traveler's Health. Similarly, health providers follow CDC guidelines to provide students with information on travel risks, offer education about risk reduction, and recommend prescriptions for medications that prevent malaria and travel-related diarrhea (as warranted by destination risk).
