Medical Services Include:

MMR Immunizations for students who do not have health insurance.

Vision Screenings (does not include eye wear prescriptions).

Tuberculosis screening for School of Education students as required for fieldwork.

GYN services/contraception education (provided by Medical Provider).

Pregnancy testing and counseling.

Laboratory testing for STDs (Health insurance is charged or you can pay out of pocket at reduced rates).

Health Education
Visit the Registered Nurse to review a variety of ways to keep healthy.  Brochures are available regarding nutrition, diabetes, alcohol prevention, sexually transmitted diseases and other health related information.

 

Over-the-Counter Medications
Not feeling well? Over-the-counter medication is available for self-administration, on a limited basis, pending assessment by the Student Health Services nurse.

Note:  Medical records are strictly confidential and are not part of the academic records. Any information on these records or concerning a visit to the Student Health Services will not be released without written permission from the individual treated. However, immunization records are an exception when they must be made available to state inspectors and select University offices in order to comply with New York State law. 
Referrals are made for medical care not provided by Student Health Services. The costs are minimal, and off-site appointments can be scheduled including laboratory tests and follow-up treatment:
