Appointments are required, but walk-ins are accommodated when space is available. The Student Health Center is a service provided through your tuition fees. Although there is a $10 office access fee per visit, services provided on-campus are free of charge, including exams and routine lab work. Students are responsible for medication costs. On occasion, it is necessary for a student to be sent off-campus for an exam, lab, or x-ray their insurance will be billed. It is a good idea to have your medical information with you when you are at school.
All Student Health Center records are completely confidential. We will not release information about your medical care to anyone without your written consent.
The Health Center is primarily staffed by board certified nurse practitioners in consultation with the Medical Director Dr. Jacqueline Eriksen. Health promotion and prevention programs are provided by the health educator. The Health Services are provided through a contract between Linfield College and Physicians’ Medical Center. Our emphasis is on health promotion as well as treatment of specific medical problems. You can check out our Student Health Center Staff pages.
Linfield health care providers are primary care providers trained to diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries typically seen in a college aged population. Common concerns managed through the health services are: reproduction health, mental health, infectious diseases, skin problems, injuries, respiratory problems, neurologic concerns, such as headaches. We also work with student’s home providers to continue care for chronic medical conditions while the student is at school. Some examples of chronic medical conditions are heart disease, arthritis, seizure disorders and kidney diseases. The nurse practitioners have prescription privileges in the State of Oregon. Limited laboratory work is done on campus, extensive laboratory work and x-ray services are done through an office campus provider and are the financial responsibility of the student.
