An open house for the new Student Health Center was held this week. Students had an opportunity to meet the staff, take a tour and learn about the health care services provided on campus.
The UTC Student Health Center offers expanded services to students, including free visits for routine care, such as blood pressure checks, fevers, headaches, and upset stomachs.
Dr. Chris Smith, Coordinator of the UTC Family Nurse Practitioner Graduate Program, serves as director of the center. In addition to the full-time health care providers staffing the center, faculty members from the UTC School of Nursing engage in faculty practice in the center. Additionally, graduate students in nursing, athletic training, and physical therapy, will have opportunities for clinical learning experiences under the supervision of expert practitioners in the center.
Some of the services provided at the center include immunizations, physicals, health screenings, and maintenance of health records.
The center’s hours are 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. The center closes for lunch from noon-1 p.m.
The Student Health Center, located in the Metropolitan Building, can be accessed by entering the building from Houston Street by going up the covered ramp.
