The SHC operates similarly to a family physician's office and demonstrates the latest in health standards, allowing students to acquire care from highly trained medical professionals right here on campus. Available services include a wide range of everyday health needs, including men's and women's health, care for illness and injury, immunizations, injections, labs, nutrition, respiratory problems, and dermatology. The SHC also offers specialized clinics such as flu vaccination, travel medicine, massage therapy, and STI/HIV testing. If deemed appropriate, physicians may provide a referral to a specialist or determine if a higher level of care is required.
Students may schedule an appointment through their patient portal or by calling 310.506.4316, option 3. Appointments are preferred, and walk‐ins are prioritized according to the nature and urgency of the illness or injury.
Providers prescribe medications in alignment with their treatment plans. The SHC features an in-house dispensary, providing access to common medications. A written prescription will be provided for any medication not available at the SHC. Conveniently, there are multiple pharmacies in the local community.
Students who are too sick or injured to use the campus shuttle are encouraged to contact the Department of Public Safety at 310.506.4442 to receive a free medical escort.
