About the University Health Center
The University Health Center consists of clinical services, Student Wellness and Outreach, and Substance Abuse Prevention. Our staff partners with students to empower them to make informed choices by providing a holistic approach to student health, education, wellness and outreach services in a confidential, inclusive, and respectful environment.
The clinic is staffed by qualified healthcare professionals who administer care in a confidential and professional manner. Five doctors with a combined 151 years of practicing experience, and five nurse practitioners and a physician assistant with 85 combined years of practicing experience, specialize in the healthcare of JMU students - and only JMU students. Plus, a dermatology physician assistant, a gastroenterology nurse practitioner, and a registered dietitian are on staff part time.
All students must:

The Health Center currently does not accept any insurance as a form of payment, however we are a participating provider for the Student Health Insurance Plan. If there is a charge for any service rendered, the student is responsible for payment at the time of service.
We encourage you to speak with your physician or nurse about any issues and concerns you may have about the service and the care you receive. The Patient Advocate's office also is available to address concerns or answer questions at 540-568-7777 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
