    The Health Center provides treatment of minor illnesses and injury as well as health education for students. Most patients are seen on a walk-in basis; appointments are necessary for specialty clinics: women's clinic, men's clinic, orthopedic clinic, dermatology clinic and psychiatry clinic. Specialty clinics are for enrolled students only. Staff and faculty can be seen in the walk-in clinic. Nominal fees are assessed for lab tests, specialty clinic visits, professional services and surgical procedures. Referrals to medical specialists are available upon request. The Health Center pharmacy sells prescription medications and over-the-counter products at reduced rates.
    We are pleased to announce the addition of on-site dental services. All preventative dentistry along with general and other major dental procedures are now available at the Health Center to currently enrolled students.
    The Health Center offers 24-hour Attendant Care Services for physically challenged students living on campus. The program is coordinated by an on-site registered rehabilitation nurse. Participating students reside at Cambridge Oaks.
