Medical Clinic

Sick? Injured? Need a checkup?

Don’t miss out on campus life because you’re feeling lousy. We offer all the amenities of a full-service medical clinic, right here on campus. From wellness exams to gynecology to physical therapy to eye care, you’ll find what you need at the Student Health Center.

The Student Health Center offers same-day, in-person and virtual visits with our medical providers. Use our online scheduler to easily choose the date and time that works for your busy schedule. You can also make an appointment by calling 812-855-7688. If you have an urgent health problem, please call 812-855-5002 to speak with a nurse. 

We speak your language

Communication is a vital part of exceptional health care. That’s why we offer a foreign language translation service by phone for nonnative English speakers.

What can you do at the Health Center?

Your throat is sore? It hurts to urinate? You think you’ve sprained your ankle? Make an appointment at the Student Health Center. We offer same-day appointments Monday through Friday, so you can get in, get treated, and get back to your life.

If you have an urgent (but not life-threatening) injury or illness, call us at 812-855-7688 or come to room 216 so we can get you the care you need.

With our state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging, you don’t have to leave campus to get the X-rays you need. You can even get a copy of your high-quality digital X-rays suitable for sharing with a physical therapist or orthopedist. Our experienced team can assess your injury, take an X-ray, and refer you to a specialist for treatment.

We can only X-ray you if we get an order from a health care provider. You can make an appointment at our medical clinic, or have your family doctor send in an X-ray order. We accept orders from any U.S. medical provider (except chiropractors).

It generally takes two to three days to get a routine appointment (such as an annual checkup) with one of our medical providers. But once you arrive, you can expect to get treated quickly.

From genital exams to gender-affirming hormone therapy, our Gender Affirming Care Team has the specialized knowledge to give you the care you need in a comfortable, understanding environment.

If your allergist has you on allergy immunotherapy, you can get your shots at the Student Health Center. Your allergist will prescribe and mix the serum, order the dosage schedule, and either mail the serum to us or give it to you to hand deliver. We’ll store your serum in a monitored refrigerator.

You must schedule an appointment for each injection, and we recommend that you schedule several appointments in advance.

Before your first injection

A few things must happen before you can receive your injections at the Student Health Center:

  1. Your allergist will need to complete and return several forms to us:
  2. You must ask your allergist for a prescription for an EpiPen. You’re required to carry an EpiPen with you when you come for an allergy injection. If you don’t have it with you, we will not give you your injection.
  3. You’ll need to print and complete the Student Request to Receive Allergy Immunotherapy form and bring it with you to your first allergy appointment. When all of your questions have been answered, you’ll be asked to sign the form to let us know that you understand our policies and procedures.
What to know about your appointment

For your safety, you will be required to remain at the Student Health Center for 30 minutes after all allergy injections. After your 30 minutes is up, check out with the cashier or at the kiosk on the second or third floor.

You should report any of the following to the nurse before each allergy injection:

  • Any reaction to your last injection
  • Increased allergy or asthma symptoms
  • Any change in your health status
  • Any new medications, including beta blockers

Don’t perform any strenuous exercise for two hours before or two hours after receiving your injection.

We offer a safe and convenient place for you to receive therapeutic medication injections ordered by your home provider. Examples of injections we can give include (but are not limited to):

  • Humira
  • Dupixent
  • Enbrel
  • Estrogen
  • Testosterone

We will give only those medications which are approved by the FDA and which have been prescribed and ordered for you by a licensed U.S. medical provider.

Before your first injection
  1. Your provider must complete and submit a Therapeutic Injection order sheet to provide our nursing staff with instructions and dosage information.
  2. You can either bring your medication with you or have your prescription sent to our pharmacy, where you can easily pick it up and bring it to your appointment.
