We have an outpatient medical facility where you can see a doctor or nurse practitioner about any health issue, from acne and headaches to sexually transmitted infections and HIV-related illnesses. Management of gynecological care is available for women of all sexual orientations. Health educators and nutritionists help students with stress-related health problems, nutrition concerns, and sexuality issues.
Preventive services such as HIV PrEP and self-directed STI testing are readily available.
The primary care clinics provide general medical care, including women's health care, for the prevention and treatment of illness and injury. SH clinicians can also refer clients to other providers such as physician specialists and physical therapists. Students considering hormonal treatment and reassignment surgery are generally referred to specialists. In some instances, our clinicians may be able to refill hormone prescriptions received from another provider.
Student Health is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all students. For your comfort, we have these single bathrooms available

Student Health Insurance:
The University requires all students to have major medical insurance, and SHS provides Gaucho Health Insurance (GHI) to meet that requirement. GHI benefits include coverage for procedures or treatments to change characteristics of the body to those of the opposite sex, according to plan guidelines and necessity criteria. See: Gaucho Health Insurance for more information about coverage.
Your appointments with clinicians, counselors, and other SHS staff are confidential. By law, your parents, friends, professors and other school officials do not have access to your SH records.
The only way that someone may know about your appointment is if you tell them, you give us written permission to release information, or we are required by law.
Like medical records, these are protected by law. In addition, counseling records are kept separately from medical records.
