Student Health Services

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

During December and into the first week of January, Student Health Services staff are meeting with students via telephone and video conferencing and deciding during that visit if a face-to-face visit is required. This practice, known as "telehealth" service is an ongoing effort, and we ask for your patience as we work towards meeting all of students health care needs. Students who wish to meet with a provider via telehealth must call our office number at 478-445-5288 and speak with our office staff. 

A provider will then email you a WebEx appointment time and your appointment will be scheduled.  BEFORE that appointment time, please go into Medicat via Unify and fill out all necessary documents related to your appointment, specifically the consent forms and the reason for visit forms.  If those are not completed, your appointment will have to be rescheduled.

At this time, walk-in appointments will not be available in order to provide as much illness mitigation as possible.  Regular visits to the clinic by appointment will resume at the beginning of the Spring semester.  This will include face-to-face visits as well as telehealth visits depending on the patient's individual needs.

Please watch FrontPage announcements for more information regarding continued efforts to keep our campus healthy and safe during this novel Coronavirus.  

Anyone experiencing emergencies should seek help immediately by calling 911 or Georgia College Public Safety at 478-445-4400.
