Student Health Services will include psychiatric services starting July 1st

Student Health Services (SHS) recognizes the crucial connection between physical heath and psychological well-being.  SHS psychiatric services include both a consulting psychiatrist and advanced practice psychiatric nurse and offers outpatient psychiatric care that focuses on medication management and evaluation. You may be referred to a SHS psychiatric services provider following an appointment in a medical clinic or a scheduled consultation at the University Counseling Center.  Our integrated clinical approach includes a review of previous treatment, a thorough diagnostic evaluation, and the proposal of a treatment plan. We may also make referrals to providers in the community for intensive or long-term treatment.

Student Health Services is an accredited, full service medical clinic staffed by licensed and board certified medical professionals located on the University of North Dakota campus, 100 McCannel Hall.

SHS provides a wide array of medical services to their patients.  The staff provides preventive care as well as care for acute illnesses and ongoing care for many chronic illnesses. If SHS is not able to provide the needed services, a referral with an appropriate consultant or facility will be arranged.  SHS recognizes the importance of lifestyle choices in the long-term health of their patients. Screening for issues that are known to impact the well-being of their patient population is incorporated into every medical encounter. Easy access to services is a high priority for staff and patients.

Comprehensive medical care, including general office visits, physicals, men’s and women’s health exams, x-rays, and lab tests, are provided.  Additional services include:

  • FAA, sports, pre-op and other physical exams
  • Immunizations
  • Foreign travel consults
  • Allergy shots
  • Wart treatment
  • Non-DOT urine drug testing
  • HIV Testing
  • Acne Treatment
  • Nutrition therapy services
  • Minor Surgical Procedures

Office call fees for illness and injury are waived for students who have paid University Health fees.  Spouses of enrolled students may use the Health Service for a per-semester fee.  Additional charges will be assessed for medications, lab work, x-rays, special examinations, injections and procedures, but the cost is generally substantially less than you would pay elsewhere.  See http://und.edu/health-wellness./student-health/

Student Health Services charges will be billed to your Student Account, whether or not you have health insurance. A credit will be issued to your account when your insurance company makes payment, if applicable. Charges made to student accounts will be posted as a Student Health Services charge.  All students must present a valid student ID at each visit.  SHS accepts and files most third party insurance.

The clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and Tuesdays until 6:00 pm during fall and spring semesters.  Call (701) 777-2605 for an appointment.

The Student Health Services Pharmacy is available to all students, their spouse and their children.  Over-the-counter medication/products are available to purchase for faculty and staff.  The pharmacy stocks most commonly prescribed medications and a large variety of over-the-counter products including cough drops, tissues, and band-aids.  Prescriptions from Student Health Service providers or your personal physician may be filled at the pharmacy.

The pharmacy participates in many insurance plans.  If the pharmacy does not participate in your plan, you will be provided with a statement that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.  You may pay with cash, check, credit or debit card.  The pharmacy also accepts the UND Pride Card.  Medications may be billed through Student Account Services or deducted from your passport account.

The Institute of Medicine defines high-quality healthcare as care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable. At SHS, these values are a part of everything they do. The integrated clinical, psychiatric, and prevention services work together to:

  • Deliver safe and high-quality mental health and medical care
  • Services are confidential
  • Improve the health of university community through prevention and public health
  • Utilize resources in an accountable and fiscally responsible manner
