University Health Service
The University Health Service (UHS) provides confidential, high quality health care services for students, employees, and other members of the University community. The University Health Service offers a wide range of medical services, including treatment for illnesses and injuries, management of ongoing medical problems, and care and advice for health care concerns.
Patient-Center Medical Home
The University Health Service offers a team-based approach to patient care that is comprehensive, coordinated, and accessible. This team-based approach is called a Patient-Centered Medical Home. To provide our patients with high quality care as efficiently as possible, all full-time students are assigned a physician or nurse practitioner as their primary care provider (PCP). Non-student primary care patients may choose a PCP at UHS. UHS care providers are organized into two patient-centered Medical Home teams, the Blue Team and the Yellow Team. Your PCP will work in collaboration with members of your team to coordinate your care and treatment.
All visits to UHS and UCC are confidential. We will not share any information about the fact or nature of a patient’s visit to UHS or UCC without the patient’s permission. Notification of others, including parents, friends, and University faculty and administrators, is considered the patient’s responsibility unless the condition is life-threatening and the patient is unable to assume responsibility for informing others. Parental notification and consent will be obtained for patient under age 18 receiving care at UHS, as required by law. See Confidentiality and Patient Rights.

The staff members of the University Health Service appreciate the value of human differences. The University Health Service vigorously opposes all intolerance and discrimination concerning differences including, but not limited to, the following: age; gender identity/expression; marital status; physical size; psychological, physical, or learning disability; race/ethnicity; religious, spiritual, or cultural identity; sex; sexual orientation; socioeconomic status; veteran status.
