The University Health Center 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 University Health Center is staffed by a medical team of board-certified providers, certified health education specialists, and substance abuse prevention specialists who administer care in a confidential and professional manner. Five doctors with a combined 142 years of practicing experience, and six nurse practitioners and a physician assistant with 102 combined years of practicing experience, specialize in the healthcare of JMU students - and only JMU students, plus a licensed pharmacist, a registered dietitian, and a dermatology physician assistant are on staff.

The University Health Center strives to make its programs and services as accessible and inclusive as possible. Please let a staff member know if assistance is needed or the University Health Center is difficult to access for any reason.
The University Health Center currently does not accept any insurance as a form of payment. 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 provider 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.
The University Health Center will not provide students with excuses for short-term absences from class, labs, studios, exams, or deadlines due to illness, injury, or other UHC appointments. In the event of a prolonged illness or injury requiring medical attention and an absence of more than three days, the UHC can provide students appropriate documentation through the Dean of Students Office. The UHC cannot disclose if a student has been seen at UHC. The UHC will not release medical records to faculty, only to students. This policy reflects the confidentiality and privacy rights afforded UHC patients. Faculty and academic units are responsible for decisions regarding the impact of absences on student grades, as well as any arrangements for making up work.
