It is the goal of Student Health Services to provide basic health care services and teach prevention and self-help skills to the students.
All currently enrolled UNG students who pay the Student Health Fee are eligible for care at Student Health Services. Student Health Fees collected each semester cover services provided in the health clinic with the exception of specific immunizations, laboratory tests sent to a reference lab, and medications provided in the Women's & Men's Health Clinic. All students must pay the Student Health Fee in order to take advantage of the services offered by Student Health Services. The health fee is not mandatory on the Gainesville, Forsyth, or Oconee campuses, but these students may pay the fee and take advantage of the services offered on the Dahlonega campus.
The clinic is staffed by a Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Practical Nurses, as well as a Physician who is available by appointment. Other staff include a Health Educator, two licensed practical nurses, and front office staff. A health professional will assess, evaluate, and treat students for acute illness and injury as well as general health maintenance. If after evaluating the student a provider feels an additional evaluation or treatment is required, the student will be referred to a local physician, hospital, or their private physician. Nutrition & Training and nicotine counseling is available by appointment, as well.
The clinic provides many over-the counter medications, first-aid supplies, and prescription medications at no additional cost to the student.
