• Medical Services

    Medical Services offers medical evaluation and treatment for illness and injury, gynecological consultation and treatment, prescriptions, medications, immunizations, and other preventive services. All services are strictly confidential and do not become part of a student's academic record.

    Please note that Medical Services will experience a temporary service interruption for the following types of appointments between March 20 and June 20, 2019:

    • Annual gynecological exams
    • IUD/Nexplanon insertions and counseling
    • Routine physical exams

    Students can still make appointments for all other types of visits, including gynecological emergencies. Birth control prescriptions will also be provided and renewed during this time. 

    If you would like to obtain a routine physical examination or GYN annual exam between March 20 and June 20, please contact us at 212.229.1671, option 2, for a referral to other medical providers within your health insurance network. 

    We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
