Health Services

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.
