Policies and Guidelines

Student Health Services has a number of policies and guidelines to ensure that all students receive fair, confidential treatment.

Students have patient rights which include treatment with respect, consideration, dignity, and privacy. SHS staff pledges patient confidentiality. Patients have the right to know who is providing service, choose clinicians, and change clinicians.

As partners in health care, students have patient responsibilities to present accurate information about their illness or complaints in a manner that is cooperative. Patients are asked to keep appointments and to cancel with advance notice. Patients should comply with treatment plans and ask for clarification of information of instruction when needed.

Please review these guidelines and become familiar with SHS policies.
