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.
Care is provided by appointment, 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 Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences students, Student Health Service provides urgent care services and sexually transmitted infection screening. Graduate students can go to NYU Langone’s Occupational Health at One Park Avenue for necessary physical exams and medical clearances, as well as treatment for occupational injuries.
