Serving a diverse student body of approximately 7,500 undergraduate and graduate students, Tufts University Health Service supports the educational mission of Tufts University by providing accessible and high quality health care for a diverse student population. We have a busy medical practice serving the acute and chronic medical needs of undergraduate and graduate students. WE ARE CURRENTLY PROVIDING MEDICAL CARE FOR STUDENTS WITH COVID19 BY BOTH IN-PERSON AND TELEHEALTH MODELS. We strive to maintain the physical, psychological, and social health of students. Health Service is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment which is inclusive and culturally informed. We are a team with an ongoing focus on deepening our understanding of the intersectional identities of all members of our community. Our values are confidentiality, respect for diversity, promotion of wellness, and continuous professional growth. NPs and PAs work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to meet the medical needs of students, including disease prevention, health promotion, and the full spectrum of routine primary care.The Advanced Practice Clinician provides primary care and episodic care to undergraduate and graduate students in both the appointment and walk in setting, working in conjunction with the rest of the clinical staff. There is a strong emphasis on all gender reproductive and sexual health care. Common acute illness and injuries are seen, as well as ongoing follow up of common chronic illnesses in this age group (asthma, allergies, migraines, GI conditions, eating disorders, musculoskeletal complaints). We provide depression screening to all students; comfort in talking about mental health is required. All clinicians rotate in providing back up to our 24/7 nurse advice line. All clinicians rotate in providing weekend coverage for the clinic. Over the coming year we expect to have a large focus on evaluating and managing students with respiratory symptoms and providing COVID testing.
