Specializing in Students
Student Health is a full-service health center staffed with physicians, advanced registered nurse practitioners and nurses available to see you for your primary health care needs.
Student Health specializes in students. We understand the unique needs of students – things like offering more same-day and next-day appointments than traditional family practice clinics.
In addition, we’re here to support your success whether than means finding a translator to help you better understand your medical condition or just helping to translate the Cy-Ride bus system!
With a state-of-the-art laboratory and digital x-ray right here in the clinic, we’re able to treat a variety of illness and injury right here on campus. In addition, we have a physical therapy department right upstairs and a pharmacy as you walk out the door. We’re a one-stop-shop for students who don’t have time to be sick!
Our healthcare providers and staff provide an inclusive, non-judgmental environment for our diverse student body and absolutely guarantee your privacy when it comes to your health diagnosis and plan.
