Lee University Health Services provide an on-campus, walk-in clinic that treats students with medical care upon need. Students are first evaluated by a registered nurse and then a physician appointment is made, as warranted, subsequent to the nursing evaluation.
The Health Clinic is not designed to be a primary care physician’s office for students who have chronic or serious medical problems. Incoming students with serious medical situations are encouraged to contact the Director of Health Services prior to registration, as well as, to inquire about information about a local physician.
All full-time undergraduate students are charged a fee each semester as a part of their tuition for services in the clinic. Part-time students and graduate students must request to have this fee added to their tuition in the business office in order to use medical services.
Some of the services available to our students are as follows:
- Allergy Shots
- Health and Wellness Information
- In-house Labs* (i.e. quick strep, mono, urinalysis, et. al.)
- Physical Exams*
- Sick Visits
(* Denotes a nominal fee)
In general, it is safe to travel outside the USA over break.
West Africa currently has three countries that are listed by CDC with level three travel restrictions- Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. The country of Mali has a level two restriction. This means that travel should be limited to these countries unless it is of a necessary nature. There are no travel restrictions listed by CDC for any other destinations at this time.
Specific countries can be researched on the webpage of CDC for general information with suggestions for travel to any country.
You may be required to show proof of immunization for some countries who now have outbreaks of measles---Japan, the Philippines, France.
With the ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa, you may incur delays if you happen to be on any flight where a passenger becomes ill. Be prepared to respond to questions about your itinerary as well as your health.
Lee University Health Services do not accept or file medical insurance as the health fee covers many of the services. Occasionally, the Health Clinic will refer a patient to a local health care provider for X-ray, lab, surgical, orthopedic or other services. The student is wholly responsible for any charges acquired in the Health Clinic or by a physician outside of the clinic.
