General Medical Information
Registered students have no out-of-pocket costs for general medical office visits or consultations. Minimal fees are charged for specialty care and prescriptions. We can bill your insurance or you can self-pay. Call SHS for questions about your medications or refills. Prescriptions for controlled medications must be picked up at our clinic. Other prescriptions can be electronically sent to USF Bulls Country Pharmacy or pharmacy of your choice.
Primary Care Services
Having a primary care provider is part of being a healthy, responsible student. You will be assigned a medical provider to assist with your health care. It is helpful to develop a relationship with your provider so you'll be comfortable asking health and wellness questions, even if they may be embarrassing. We can treat colds, flu, cough, stomach aches, or sprains and we are here to help with chronic illness like allergies, asthma, or diabetes.
Sexual Health & Gynecology
SHS offers confidential examinations, testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), contraceptives management for men and women, and other gynecological services. All women are encouraged to have an annual gynecological exam. Specialty services may incur a fee.
LGBTQ+ Health Services
USF Student Health Services is committed to non-discrimination with respect to race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations, genetic information and veteran status. To that end, we strive to provide students the right medical care and advice related to their individual bodies and perspectives.
Mental Health Services
Case Management services evaluate individual mental health needs and provide assistance in accessing services. Psychiatrists are available to evaluate and treat mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar illness or thought disorders. Post-doctoral psychologists are accessible to provide counseling utilizing brief therapy techniques to improve well-being. SHS does not provide letters for emotional support animals.
Testing for ADD, ADHD, & Learning Disability
SHS offers Neuropsychology, a specialty service to test and evaluate students for ADD, ADHD, other learning disabilities, and brain trauma. Testing can be billed to insurance or offered at student rates. After testing, a neuropsychologist will also make recommendations for academic or work accommodation if needed.
Immunizations & Allergy Shots
SHS can update your vaccinations. Charges apply but may be covered by health insurance. Students are advised to confirm the cost at the time of their appointment because prices are subject to change. Our allergy nurse administers allergy injections by appointment to students under the direction of their physician.
SHS offers nutrition counseling with a Registered Dietitian by appointment for only 10 dollars. Get specialized, individual counseling on topics such as: weight management, balanced eating, shopping on a budget, meal planning, and nutrition intervention for chronic illness. Free seminars on balanced nutrition are available throughout Fall semester.
Travel Health Services
Make an appointment to meet with our travel health nurse for information on required immunizations and ways to prevent travel-related illness. Book your appointment early as some vaccines require a series of injections and must be completed a month or more before travel. Come prepared with your immunization records and travel itinerary.
Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic Trainers administer urgent and follow-up care. Athletic Trainers follow a medical-based education model to develop athletic injury prevention and treatment programs using their knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and pathology.
