Health Center

Our mission is to support the personal growth and development of the students by offering an integrated approach to address the physical as well as the emotional well-being of those needing our services.

"Good Health" and "life as a University student" are not always a perfect match. Good health is comprised of both physical and emotional well-being. It is the goal of Shepherd University's Student Health Services to provide guidance to our students in their pursuit of good health. We believe it is better to be an educated health care consumer and an active member of the health care team, than a passive recipient of medical services.

Please call to schedule an appointment."Walk-in" visits will be worked in ONLY as the schedule permits. EMERGENCY visits are given priority. Inform the receptionist of the emergency, or in case of a LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY call 9-911 (on-campus) and 911(off-campus).

In non-emergency situations, and if the Health Center is closed, visit a local medical facility. Students are responsible for any special charges incurred through Health Services or other offsite medical facility.
