Student Health Services
Student Health Services, located in the James W. Aston Ambulatory Care Center, is staffed by a nurse practitioner, registered nurse, certified medical office assistant, and a clinic staff assistant. All office visits are confidential.
Services Available to Students Includes:
- Assessment and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries
- Prescriptions for medication, if needed
- Routine immunizations
- Lab testing
- STD testing
- Well-woman exams, Pap smears, birth control, and sports and travel exams
- For specialty care (e.g., endocrinology, orthopaedics, allergies), and illnesses and services beyond the scope of Student Health Services, referrals may be made to appropriate health care providers in the community.
Students often need medical care beyond the capabilities of the Student Health Center. Examples are automobile accidents, injuries requiring sophisticated imaging (MRI & CT scans), or serious medical or surgical care requiring hospitalization. The University wants to make sure students have the necessary medical care needed in case of events such as these.
Always remember to contact the UT Southwestern Clinical practice or hospital (including Student Health) to verify they accept your plan.
Medical Services Fee:
UT Southwestern assesses a Medical Services Fee to offset student health services costs, including access to the Student Health Center for unlimited routine physician visits, as well as access to Counseling Services at no charge. Students also have access to specialist visits, lab work, x-rays and some pharmacy services at reduced rates.
