Diversity and Inclusion:

The Student Health Center values diversity and welcomes students from diverse backgrounds.  The Student Health Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected class status in its services.

    Scope of Services:

    The Student Health Center's primary responsibility is to provide the highest quality nursing and medical care for the Fredonia student.  For the purposes of receiving health services, SUNY Fredonia considers students engaged in non-credit programs (e.g.. Pathway Programs) to be enrolled.

    It is our mission to make every effort to have a positive impact on the health care experiences of the Fredonia student while creating a culture in which they can make informed and responsible decisions regarding their personal health and wellness.  Services available include health promotion and disease prevention as well as diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and injury with education for healthy lifestyles and disease prevention, in a caring, supportive and confidential environment. The services provided by the Student Health Center includes, but are not limited to:

    • Acute/urgent care for illness and injury

    • Telemedicine

    • Pharmacy

    • Physical exams

    • Campus Food Pantry

    Physician/Nurse Practitioner services are available to the student on a daily basis Monday through Friday during the academic year.  During the eight weeks of summer session, the Student Health Center is staffed with a Registered Nurse to perform nursing duties only.  There is no medical provider available during this eight week period of summer session.

    Medical conditions that require continuous care, specialized or surgical, are handled either by referral or a return to the primary care physician at the student's expense.  Medical Records are strictly confidential and are released only with a student's written consent. An authorization for release of medical records form is available on our Student Health Center website at www.fredonia.edu/student-life/health-center/forms
