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 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.
