The Office of Student Health Services provides primary care, diagnosis, treatment, and education. The staff members determine which conditions can be treated and which need referral to an off-campus facility. They also support wellness programs and participate in health workshops and other activities that support physical wellness for the campus community.

Student Health Services uses an “open access” model for scheduling appointments—every attempt is made to give an appointment on the same day that a student calls. Student Health Services is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 pm. Student appointment times are 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday–Tuesday and Thursday–Friday, and 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Students are encouraged to call early in the morning (after 8:30 a.m. and preferably before 11 a.m.) to arrange for a same-day appointment. A student will be given the first available appointment that is mutually acceptable to the student and the Student Health Services staff. There will be some slots available for students to make appointments for another day ahead of time.

In the case of a medical emergency or severe illness, students should call or come to Student Health Services. Appointments are prioritized according to the patient’s condition.

Appointments for travel medicine are scheduled by an online student submission of pertinent information regarding the travel. Please refer to www.purchase.edu/healthservices, and select “Study Abroad Travel Forms” and then “Making an Appointment…” The Student Health Services staff will respond to these requests.
