Health Services are provided at the Joseph G. Gordon Student Health Center. Each student must have taken a thorough physical examination before matriculating at the University and submit a certificate of good health. A student who has special medical problems is responsible for registering them with the University Physician. The student is subject to an examination by the University physician, and the University will be guided by the physician’s recommendations.

The University also employs a Registered Nurse and Medical Assistant. There is no fee for students visiting the Health Center. Students will only pay for prescription medications if required.

Services provided by the Health Center are care for minor emergencies, health consultations and providing healthy promotions on illnesses, diseases and prevention education.

In case of emergencies or illnesses beyond the capability of the University Health Center, students will be directed to one of the many local Urgent Care Centers in the area or one of the four hospitals in the Wake County, one of them Wake Medical Center, is approximately three miles from the campus.

The University maintains a health plan to cover all students for a reasonable charge for students who do not have their own private health insurance coverage. The insurance is included in the general fee. The insurance will only pay a percentage of the medical expenses incurred from a hospital visit or outside medical office. Some expenses are not covered by the health plan.

The University also provides a health and wellness program. Our “state of the art” fitness center, the Taylor Wellness Center, provides wellness services. Health Center services are provided, when needed. CAPS (the University’s Counseling and Psychological Services) work very closely with Joseph G. Gordon Health Center.

All medical records remain Confidential once received in our office including all office visits to Health Center.

In order to provide health care services and comply with North Carolina General Statutes, the Joseph G. Gordon Student Health Center requires submission of your health information as soon as possible. Please see Student Health Documents.

Your health information should be mailed or faxed to the student health center. If your health information is submitted before the deadline (July 15 for fall admission and December 15 for spring admission), you will receive notification of your medical clearance to register for classes via mail.

Athletes cannot participate in sports if we do not receive the completed Student Health Documents.

Again, the staff at Joseph G. Gordon Student Health Center looks forward to assisting with your healthcare needs. If you have any questions, please call 919.516.4142.
