University Health Services (UHS), a unit of Student Affairs, now offers telemedicine

UHS is committed to continuing to support students during these difficult times, and as part of this commitment, services have been expanded beyond the traditional face-to-face medical visits. Telemedicine is one of the ways to reach out to students, allowing for both phone and video interactions, with the latter being done through Zoom. Students that would normally have access to UHS providers and services, can still access these providers, with some few exceptions depending upon the state they reside in. To see if your medical needs are appropriate for telemedicine, call the appointment line at 814-863-0774. An experienced nurse will be able to help determine how best to use this resource and help set up an appointment. Later this summer, online scheduling for telemedicine will be implemented. For more information on telemedicine, COVID-19, and other medical issues, visit the UHS webpage.
