Student Health Services
The Student Health Service provides a complete service for full-time students (and their enrolled spouses, domestic partners, and dependents) registered in the School of Medicine. Services are provided through a self-funded program included in tuition and fee costs. Services include professional care by staff internists and counselors, with referrals to other consultants. Emergency care is available at the emergency department of Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
The Student Health Service pre-screens every incoming student prior to their arrival at the School to ensure all federal requirements have been met regarding communicable diseases. Entering students are required to have a medical examination within one year of matriculation and to show proof of immunity to measles (rubeola), rubella and mumps and a tetanus booster within 10 years. The Student Health Service tracks all immunizations during and prior to enrollment. Statements of Health for internships and practicums are provided.
