Medical School, Student Affairs team to deliver health services
The School of Medicine has partnered with the Division of Student Affairs to deliver student health care at the Main, Ambler and Tyler campuses and the Health Sciences Center. Physicians at Student Health Services will join the Medical School faculty.
“We’ll be putting our contemporary practice management systems into place, which will include monitoring student satisfaction,” said Joe Rudy, director of clinical development. “Together, we want to find ways to make the current service even better than it already is.”
On Main Campus, long-term plans include moving Student Health Services from its current location in the basement of Mitten Hall into a new building to be constructed and opening an office to treat faculty and staff.
Through SHS, students can receive primary care for urgent and ongoing medical problems, including gynecologic/family planning services, allergy shots, immunizations, physical exams and travel assessments, referrals to outside specialists and facilities, nutrition counseling, dermatology consultation and confidential HIV testing.
“We look forward to a productive and successful working relationship with Temple School of Medicine this coming year,” said Theresa Powell, vice president of student affairs.
