The Center staff provides for the primary health care needs of students during the academic semester. The Center is not an emergency room and staff determine which conditions can be appropriately treated in the Center and which need referral to an off campus facility. The Center staff recognizes the importance of helping students prevent or detect early physical, developmental and psychiatric problems that can have a negative impact on student's academic and social functions. There is extensive printed material available in the Center on these topics and students are encouraged, beginning at orientation, to call for an appointment with a staff member to discuss any of these areas, even when there is no physical complaint.
