Physician / Medical Doctor Services

Physician (medical doctor) service provides assistance to students seeking medical diagnosis and treatment of short-term, temporary illness.

  • Physician services are contracted for a specific number of days / hours each year.
  • The physician is not on campus daily, and is not available to students when not on campus.
  • Please check the College Events Calendar ​or call the office to confirm day(s) of service for the week.
  • Physician services are not available during winter and spring breaks or summer session

Primary Healthcare Provider

It is not the intention of the physician to be identified as a primary healthcare provider in the Student Health & Wellness Office. We have a limited scope of practice for physician services and do not function like the typical doctor's office. Community referrals must be made with conditions requiring ongoing medication and treatment follow-up. Our office will assist in the referral process as much as possible.

Medications

The office stocks a limited formulary of prescription medications to treat common, uncomplicated respiratory, ear / nose / throat, eye, and skin ailments. Only the physician can dispense these medications, which are available to the student at no cost. If our formulary does not contain the medication indicated for a condition, a prescription may be written, and filled at the student's expense.

Diagnostics & Referrals

At times, diagnostics such as X-rays, lab work or other medical tests may be indicated, as well as referral to another community provider / specialist. The student is responsible for costs associated with services rendered outside our office.
