Medical Student Health & Wellness Services

At NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Student Health Service, we understand that your wellbeing is an essential part of your educational success. We provide primary care to all medical students, as well as urgent care services to both medical students and Vilcek Institute of Biomedical Sciences graduate students.

Most care is provided on a walk-in basis, and all services, except certain immunizations, are provided free of charge. Our services include the following:

  • care for acute illnesses and injuries
  • preventive health services, including immunizations
  • allergy shots
  • sexual health evaluation, treatment, and counseling
  • travel health services, including recommended immunizations
  • coordination of outside care and referrals

Students who seek care with us can rest assured that they are in a safe environment. Our staff clinicians are not involved in teaching or in evaluating a student’s academic or clinical performance. Read our full policy on the provision of confidential care.

For graduate students, NYU Langone’s Occupational Health Service at One Park Avenue offers necessary physical exams and medical clearances, as well as treatment for occupational injuries.
