Our Personnel & Addresses
CSI Student Health Services offers medical care to any part time or full time student paying for CSI credits. We promote the well being of CSI students both physically and mentally and encourage positive lifestyle choices. Your health is important.
Student Health Services is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner and a Medical Assistant. Our hours during the Fall and Spring semesters are Monday thru Thursday 9:00am to 4:00pm and Friday 9:00am to 3:30pm with appointments from 9:30am to 2:45pm (we are closed from 12:30pm to 1:00pm). Our hours during the Summer semester are from 11:00am to 3:00pm with appointments from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Student Health is closed during holidays and semester breaks.
Student Health Services provides care for acute (e.g. colds) and chronic (e.g. diabetes) conditions, and some emergencies. This is done in a friendly manner through comprehensive history taking, physical examination, diagnostic studies (e.g. routine lab tests, x-rays) and prescribing medications and/or therapy. X-rays are performed off campus and are charged for by that institution. Most lab work is performed at a lab off campus and is charged for by that lab. Several tests such as strep screens, mono tests, pregnancy tests, urinalysis, wet preps, hematocrits, and blood sugars are done on site and charged for by Student Health for a minimal charge. Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases are done and kept extremely confidential. Annual female exams (PAP smears) are performed and birth control is prescribed as needed. Depo Provera injections and 2 oral contraceptives are available thru Student Health at our cost. Students are also evaluated and treated for depression and anxiety. Students may be referred from off campus counselors and also may be referred from Student Health to an off site counselor. We also perform required physicals for CSI programs. (There is a charge for these.) Most of these physicals are done during the Summer semester. All illnesses will be evaluated but if needed will be referred to a local doctor. There is no charge for an office visit on site but if a student is referred then they will be charged by that physician. Immunizations are offered and encouraged. (There also is a charge for these.) There are prescription assistance programs available for those students that qualify financially. Appointments are recommended as students will be seen in the order of 1) emergencies 2) appointments and 3) walk-ins as our schedule allows.
