EVMS Student Health Clinic extends our welcome to both new and returning students.

As a student, care is provided for you for acute and ongoing health problems. These services are provided by our practice in exchange for the annual payment of your student health fee. The student health fee is separate from any cost related to your major medical insurance and the service is extended to all students regardless of insurance carrier.

The clinic offers comprehensive health and wellness services, including mental health, all in one location on campus. The clinic’s medical director is a physician dedicated to student services and not involved in student education or training.
