The Health Center at Jackson State University provides students readily available access to a variety of outpatient medical services for acute illnesses and injuries. Campus wide health promotion is also a major focus of the Health Center.
The clinic is located on Prentiss Street across from the Lee E. Williams Athletics and Assembly Center. Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The clinic staff includes Physicians, a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, and Licensed Practical Nurses.
The clinic services are available to all registered students as well as faculty and staff. There is no additional fee to use the clinic for students and no appointments are necessary. However, appointments for the family planning services and certain special exams (i.e. sports and military pre-participation physicals) may be required. Also, a fee is charged for certain labs, supplies and prescription medications that may be provided on site by the clinical staff.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to join the University Health Center Plan. The plan entitles faculty and staff to certain clinic services or they can opt to pay a fee per visit to be seen by the clinical staff.
