A medical practice serving the acute and chronic medical needs of resident undergraduate students and students in the Threshold program
The Student Health Service Center is a clinic serving the acute and chronic medical needs of our full-time undergraduate students, and students in the Threshold program. We are here to help you maintain your health so that you can focus on your education.
If you're a full-time student living on campus, you'll automatically be enrolled to receive Student Health Services for a $400 fee/semester, billed to your student account. Our services are optional for full-time undergraduates living off campus.
Student Health Services is not health insurance. We are an appointment-based clinic. Our nurse practitioners and a physician provide professional and confidential care and advice on health issues you may have, such as:
If you have an urgent problem or medical emergency, you'd need to go to a local hospital emergency room or walk-in clinic. We can order advanced tests like x-rays, ultrasound, and EKGs through local providers if needed.
We are located on Doble campus on the lower level of Mackenzie Hall, next to the mail room. (Find Mackenzie Hall on our campus map.) We are open during the academic year, September to May, on the same schedule as the residence halls. We are not a 24-hour walk-in clinic, so you'll need to make an appointment. See when we are open.
We have same day/next day appointments, and recommend you call early. We block time every day for urgent care issues. Non-urgent problems may be offered an appointment for the next day.
Off-Hours Care or Emergencies
While we encourage students and faculty to stay out of class and other group gatherings when sick with a contagious illness, we do not provide routine "sick notes" to students for professors due to brief absences from class. We encourage our students to discuss absences with their professors.
If you think you'll be absent for one week or longer, we'll notify the Director of Advising, who will then notify your faculty advisor and professors of the medical absence.
We assure medical confidentiality for care and services received at Student Health Services, except in cases where the safety of the student or others is at risk, or as required by law (such as mandated reporting of certain infectious diseases and abuse).
We won't transmit any detailed information to others without the student's written consent or direction, except as noted above. We may share the Student Health Form information with appropriate University personnel on a need-to-know basis. We hold all patient information in strict confidence according to FERPA guidelines.
Each patient has a confidential medical record, and records are only released with a student's signed written request. Record requests take about 5–7 business days to complete. Find the forms you need to release your records.
We advocate for a healthy campus community. The staff at Student Health Services can assist resident assistants (RAs), community advisors (CAs), faculty, and student leaders in creating health programming for students on these and other topics, during the academic year (September to May):
We can also come to your classroom or event and give a talk on a health-related topic. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Here are some sites that provide information on health topics. These resources are not intended to diagnose, treat, or provide a second opinion on any health problem or disease. See your health care practitioner for specific medical assistance.
