Medical Student Services

Student Health Services

Boston University Student Health Services at 881 Commonwealth Avenue West, is open to all students. Most issues can be addressed through Student Health Services and students must be accompanied by a program assistant when accessing services. There is a co-pay fee of $25 for each visit, payable by cash, check, credit card, or charged to the student's account. In the case of an emergency or the need for medical care on weekends or weekdays after 4:30 pm, students will be taken to a local hospital emergency room, accompanied by a program assistant. Students who are not feeling well should inform the on-call program assistant immediately.

To receive emergency hospital care, you must have the Immunization and Physical Form and Health History Forms provided in your acceptance packet. These forms must be signed by your parent or guardian and health care provider, and then returned to the Summer Term High School Programs office at least three weeks before your arrival on campus. Students who do not submit these forms in advance of arrival are not allowed to participate in the program. If you have any questions about the forms, please feel free to contact our program staff at 617-353-1378.

Before the program begins, please inform us of any medical issues or concerns so that the best care possible is available for you. We provide space for this information on our Medical Information Summary form provided in the acceptance packet.
