Primary Care Services
Primary Care Services provides a comprehensive and holistic approach to the care of students at both of our clinic sites. We believe continuity with a medical provider helps to provide best care possible. Beginning in fall 2013, all new students are assigned a PCP (Primary Campus Provider) so that each student is connected with a medical provider who is familiar and gets to knows them. If a student needs care outside of our scope of practice, we will refer to specialists in the community.
We see students by appointment for general health concerns, gynecology concerns, acute and chronic medical conditions, injuries, preventive care and specialized services. We encourage and welcome students to call us for an appointment or to get advice and guidance over the phone. We know students are busy, so we offer many same day and next day appointments.
