Does the Campus Health Clinic offer birth control?

We do not have samples of birth control. However, a nurse practitioner will be happy to meet with you and discuss starting or continuing birth control. We usually will give you a prescription for a year's supply of birth control. We also test and treat STDs and perform/teach self-breast exams. Can the Campus Health Clinic store my medications for me?

Yes. The nursing staff at the Campus Health Clinic can store injectable medications for you. We have a refrigerator and locked storage cabinets. However, if the clinic is closed, you will not have access to your medication. If your medication expires, we will hold it for 30 days for you to pick up, after 30 days it will be discarded/destroyed per policy. We cannot use expired medications in our facility.

Does the Campus Health Clinic give allergy injections?

Yes. You will have to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner for an initial office visit to establish care. We will need a copy of a physician order from your allergist/doctor. Your doctor will need to mail your medication to our clinic, or you can bring it to the clinic. We can store your allergy serum in our refrigerator. Please note that we require you to wait 30 minutes after the injection to observe for any reaction. The Nurse Practitioner must be in the office to receive your injection, so we do not give allergy injections from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Can the Campus Health Clinic refill my routine home medications?

Yes and no. There are some medications that our Nurse Practitioner cannot prescribe. You will need to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to discuss your health concerns and medications. You may also call the nursing staff at the clinic with a list of your medications, and the nursing staff will let you know whether they may be prescribed by the Nurse Practitioner. If we cannot refill your medications, we will refer you to a physician on staff with Mercy Hospital Southeast.
