Student Health Clinic is UCA’s on-campus medical clinic. Our staff consists of a Doctor, 3 Advanced Practice Nurses (APN), 3 Registered Nurses and 5 Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and 2 medical assistants to administer care and treatment. We also have 3 office staff to answer any questions, help make appointments and handle any immunization issues. Our staff strives to provide students and staff with quality medical care, within our abilities, and refer to outside medical facilities, when necessary.
We are funded by student health fees included in tuition, and students are not charged for visits or treatments unless these are ordered by an outside provider or for a class. Staff and faculty must pay a fee to be treated in the clinic.
We are in the new Health Center Building located between Baridon Hall and the HPER building near the cafeteria.
The Counseling center, Health Promotion and Wellness and Disability Services are also housed in this building.
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8-11:30 a.m. and 1pm to 4:30 pm. (open from 4:30-5:00 p.m. for emergencies).
We treat minor illnesses and injuries; do physicals, pap screens, immunizations, allergy shots, health screenings, such as blood pressure checks, cholesterol checks, blood sugar, and treatments prescribed by family doctors or specialists.
We can diagnose and treat mild depression and anxiety and we work closely with our Counseling Center to better treat the students from the medical and emotional side.
We have x-ray capability and do some laboratory testing on-site. For lab tests we cannot do at UCA, we send to a local reference lab.
We give every patient a written account of their medical visit plus an information sheet on their condition. We do patient teaching for specific medical conditions, such as asthma, obesity, dressing changes, etc. We also provide students with health information and education for class requirements or projects.
