HEALTH ALERT: EBOLA INFORMATION                                                  The Ebola virus is currently causing an outbreak in several countries in West Africa.  Anyone returning from one of these countries should self monitor for symptoms of Ebola infection.  Seek medical care immediately if any symptoms develop!  Symptoms may appear anywhere from two to 21 days after exposure.  More information about Ebola can be found here.


KEEPING RAMS HEALTHY

VCU’s University Student Health Services is a nationally accredited health care service committed to providing high quality outpatient care to VCU students.  We offer a wide range of primary care services, psychiatric care, nutritionist consults, and pharmacy services.   Traveling abroad?  Make an appointment at our Travel Clinic.  Need to catch up on vaccines?  Visit our Immunization Clinic.  Have some women's health concerns?  You’ve come to the right place!

WHO CAN USE STUDENT HEALTH?
All students enrolled in classes for the fall semester can receive services at Student Health.  Appointments can be scheduled by phone or online.

DO I NEED HEALTH INSURANCE IN ORDER TO USE STUDENT HEALTH?
No.  Student Health does not accept health insurance.  Visits for full-time students are covered by the health fee that is automatically billed along with their tuition each semester.  Part-time students will be billed a one-time health fee if they present to Student Health for services.

Students need to be aware that the health fee does NOT cover the cost of complete physicals, medications, certain labs, xrays, referrals, etc.  Therefore, we strongly encourage students to purchase individual health insurance to cover their health care needs.   If you do not already have health insurance, consider purchasing the university-sponsored health insurance through Aetna or visit the Health Insurance Exchange.

WHERE IS STUDENT HEALTH?
We have two locations for your convenience:
• The clinic at Monroe Park is located in the Sports Medicine Building, 2nd Fl, next to the Seigel Center at 1300 W. Broad St.  Free parking spaces designated for Student Health are located behind the building.
• The clinic at MCV is located in the VMI Building, 3rd Fl, at 1000 E. Marshall St.

WHAT ARE THE HOURS?
Student Health is open Monday through Friday.  Clinic is closed after hours and on weekends and holidays.  If an urgent medical problem arises when clinic is closed, students may consult the after-hours provider on-call or seek care at a local urgent care or emergency services facility.


STUDENT HEALTH IS CASHLESS:
Only major credit cards, debit cards, and Rambucks are accepted as payment methods.


TAKE-CARE-OF-YOURSELF CHECKLIST:
It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses.  Consider keeping a small supply of the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):    

• Antibiotic ointment
• Bandaids
• A digital thermometer
• Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
• Benadryl for allergic reactions
• Cough and cold medications


THE WELL

The Wellness Resource Center empowers all students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness.

Our one-on-one consultations and presentations extend to topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.

We also offer an array of volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.
