Sexual Assault

Student Health Services (SHS) can provide you with testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and emergency contraception.  SHS, however, is unable to provide a “rape examination” intended to collect forensic evidence for use during any future legal action through the criminal justice system.  In Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center conducts rape examinations.   SHS can assist in facilitating referrals to Tuttleman Counseling Services and the Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center.

The Tuttleman Counseling Center provides counseling and assistance to persons who have been forced to have sex against their will through the Sexual Assault Counseling and Education (SACE) program.  Visit their web site for information on SACE and related program.

Services provided in SHS are strictly confidential.  SHS employees are not mandated reporters.

The Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center

The Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center (PSARC) was established in 2011 to meet the forensic and medical needs of sexual assault victims who are 16 years of age and older. PSARC is a private, not-for-profit center whose mission is to provide expertise in the assessment and evaluation of sexual assault victims in Philadelphia. All services are provided in private, medical office setting located adjacent to the Special Victims Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department. This unique setting allows for private, confidential, victim-centered care.

The center is staffed 24/7, by on-call, specially trained and experienced Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) who provide forensic rape examinations and evidence collection to both females and males. The SANE staff are all highly-trained, compassionate nurses with years of experience in the care of sexually assaulted patients.

PSARC works closely with the Philadelphia Police Department's Special Victims Unit, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Women Organized Against Rape (WOAR), and the Philadelphia Sexual Assault Advisory Committee to provide a survivor-centered approach to sexual assault.

PSARC care for victims regardless of their cooperation with law enforcement. Accompaniment services, if desired, are provided by Women Organized Against Rape, Philadelphia's rape crisis center.

Services provided at PSARC include:

  • Forensic medical evaluation
  • Injury documentation
  • Forensic photography
  • Pregnancy prevention
  • Sexually transmitted infection prevention
  • HIV prevention
  • Follow-up care
  • Court testimony
  • Victim advocacy linkage
