Student Health Services

Student Health Services is staffed by registered nurses and resident physicians who provide acute medical services for occasional, routine health problems in order to permit students to focus on achieving their academic, career, and personal goals. Student Health Services is located in the Watkins Infirmary building near the Contraband Bayou behind Kirkman Hall and Frazar Memorial Library. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Medical visits with physicians and nurses are funded through a student self-assessed fee.

Students in need of extended care of chronic or serious health problems are referred to local hospitals, medical offices, and ancillary health care service providers and should be prepared to present personal health insurance information and make appropriate payment arrangements for services received in these facilities.

In addition to acute medical care, Student Health Services provides wellness program and general health information to students and the campus community. Walk-in appointments with registered nurses are available anytime during regular office hours. Physician appointments should be scheduled in advance. Questions about health issues and available services or requests for consultations and appointments with healthcare providers should be directed to the staff by calling (337) 475-5748.
