Primary Medical Care and Specialty Services

 

Quality, accessible and convenient outpatient medical care is provided for urgent illnesses, minor injuries, preventive care and chronic medical problems. 

COVID-19 requires us all to do things differently. The SHC has made some necessary changes to face this challenge. What won’t change is our commitment to protecting our community, our students, and our staff. Whether you’re healthy or not, the best thing you can do today is wear a face covering, avoid gatherings of any size, or with others that are not in your household, physically distance and practice good hand hygiene. 

To ensure students receive the medical care needed, the Student Health Center (SHC) has adjusted services to align with current public health recommendations. In an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 on campus and support the well-being of the USD community, we will work quickly to support students’ medical care. 

  • The SHC will screen all patients by telephone for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to coming into the health center.
  • Students concerns will be supported by telehealth whenever possible. If you have a phone or video visit, and a medical provider recommends an in-clinic appointment, that will be scheduled.
  • All students who visit the SHC will need to wear a face covering. 
  • Patients with respiratory symptoms will be kept separated from non-respiratory patients by scheduling times and utilizing different entrances and areas of the health center.
  • If the SHC is experiencing a surge of patients with respiratory symptoms, individuals with non-respiratory concerns may be asked to work with an off-campus provider for care during these times.
  • All SHC visits are by appointment only. No walk-in permitted. 
  • You can get care without leaving your home or room. 

 

How do I schedule a medical appointment with the Student Health Center?

Some telehealth appointments will be available for web-booking on the MyWellness portal. If you are unable to book an appointment online, you should call the SHC at (619) 260-4595 so that we can determine how to best assist you. Most patients will be scheduled for a telehealth appointment done by phone or video. Even if an in-person visit is likely needed, a telehealth visit may first be conducted to reduce in-person time needed at the SHC

Send requests for medication refills, general health questions, immunization information, billing information or questions about ongoing care needs securely through the MyWellness Portal.

If you have the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan, referrals are not needed for in-network medical providers at this time. The $300 deductible will be waived without a referral from USD. 

 
 
The SHC can provide immediate dispensing of many commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medications during your appointment. A physician, nurse practitioner, and/or physician assistant along with a registered nurse are on duty during operating hours. Students are seen by appointment only.
