Scope of Services

Primary Care
Our center provides acute and preventative care services for the treatment of common medical problems to ensure that our students remain healthy and active. A student should expect to receive an initial diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for a variety of illnesses. When necessary and appropriate, referral to community providers will be offered.

Community Referrals

At times, a student's needs fall outside the scope of services provided by the center (i.e. dermatology, orthopedic needs) and need to be addressed by a specialist. In such cases, the practitioner and Center staff will help refer the client to an appropriate community referral for further treatment.

Students are expected to seek medical interventions in the community outside of our regular business hours (Monday - Friday 1PM-5PM). Please note that these offices are not associated with our Center and normal medical fees are associated with these offices:
