While all providers have experience in office-based orthopedics and sports-related care, Student Health also has two board certified Sports Medicine physicians on staff. These specialists can help with acute and chronic injuries. These specialists can also order radiological tests or arrange for physical therapy. Student Health stocks braces, splints, crutches that are available for at-cost (cost to Student Health) purchase if your provider deems them necessary for your recovery.
Appointments with nutritionists are available by referral from a Student Health physician or nurse practitioner. The nutritionists are on-site on day per week for these appointments. They work together with the health care provider in the care of students with high cholesterol, diabetes, weight loss issues, and general nutrition questions. They also work together with the health care provider and mental health experts in the care of students with eating disorders. If you would like to be referred to the nutritionist, please make an appointment to see one of our physicians or nurse practitioners.
