The University of Connecticut Health Service is a health care facility which is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care Facilities. A wide range of services are offered to students here, including primary health care, acute care (non-life-threatening), overnight care, counseling and mental health, laboratory, radiology, and pharmacy. Specialized services and programs include women's health, sports medicine, an allergy clinic, nutritional counseling, health and wellness education, HIV antibody testing, STD testing and special health clinics.
Our mission is to promote the lifelong physical and emotional well-being of our students. Our multi-disciplinary team provides high quality, cost-effective Primary Care, Health Promotion and Educational Outreach.
The use of Student Health Services is limited to those students who have paid the Storrs Campus General University Fee. Regional campus students and those enrolled in programs that do not require payment of the Storrs GUF should seek community-based health services.
In support of the academic mission of the university, clinical students may participate in the provision of care at Student Health Services. These trainees are an integral part of our health care team and may include medical students and interns, nursing students, nurse practitioner students, pharmacy interns, athletic trainer students and phlebotomy students. They may be observing, participating in or performing a variety of services including exams, treatment decisions, procedures and/or other forms of health care. Patients have the right to refuse service from a clinical trainee.
