Patients are seen on a drop-in basis and are screened and assessed by a certified nurse practitioner or registered nurse. They may be treated or referred to the physician, depending on the nature of the visit. When a specialist’s care is indicated the nurse will assist with the referral.
All patients are eligible for health services. All services with other health care providers or agencies are at the patient’s own expense. The local hospital provides physician services on a 24-hour basis for emergencies.
Students who do not have hospital insurance policies might consider purchasing a basic policy which the University offers through a private agency. Brochures describing this policy are available throughout the year at University Health Services and at the Student Affairs Office, Overstreet Building, Room 116.
