      Welcome to SHS

The Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) Student Health Service (SHS) staff is here to work with you to achieve optimal health and academic success. We offer a full array of onsite primary care, mental health, and preventive health and wellness services for men and women, as well as referrals for specialist care when necessary. A clinician is also on call whenever we are closed for health emergencies. Our services are tailored to the particular needs of students entering the health professions. We strive to be a model of compassionate, high-quality health care for the diverse CUMC community.

Before your arrival, there are several preregistration health requirements that you must satisfy in order to register for classes. Please read the “Preregistration Health Requirements Letter” and upload the completed forms prior to the deadline date.

Preregistration Health Requirements for Clinical Students (Dental, Medical, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy)

Preregistration Health Requirements for Non-Clinical Students (Public Health, Human Nutrition, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Post-Doctoral Fellows)

SHS can perform this service for a fee if you are in New York City. Do not to wait until the last minute as the process can take some time. An administrative fee of $95 will be charged to students completing any preregistration requirements at the Student Health Service, with additional fees charged for each service rendered (immunizations and titers).  We do not accept any type of insurance for these services, and full payment is due at the time of service (via cash, check or credit card). Click here for the list of services offered. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 212-305-3400, prompt 1.

Once you have registered for classes, please make an appointment to see one of our clinicians so that we can welcome you personally and establish a productive health partnership. We are conveniently located at 60 Haven Avenue on the Lobby Level. Please Click Here for location and hours.
