Health & Counseling Services

For Students

The Student Health Service is an on-campus clinic which provides medical and counseling services to full time students.

All students are required to complete a health questionnaire, have a physical exam, and meet immunization requirements before their enrollment at Washington College. Physical exams must be completed within the 6 month period prior to the due date. Required immunizations are listed on the Health Form

Self-Help Shelf

A self-help shelf is available in the waiting area and can be accessed during regular office hours without registering at the Health Service. Items available on the shelf include Tylenol, ibuprofen, decongestants,menstrual cramp relief medication, band-aids, thermometers, cough drops, condoms, and throat lozenges. First aid kits are available on each hall and contain all items on the self-help shelf as well as ice packs, gloves, and bandages. Contact your resident hall assistant for these items.

Emergency Contraception

Health Services offers the morning after pill. Students will need to schedule an appointment with Health Services. There is no charge for this service, and as with all services, it is confidential.

The morning after pill (Plan B) may be given up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex.

Release of Health Information

Occasionally students need to have their health records/immunization records mailed or faxed to their doctor at home, another college, grad school, or a new employer. In order for us to provide these records we need to have an Authorization for the release of health information form completed. You may print out this form below, and either fax or mail the completed form to us. Your records will be sent out within 2 weeks of us receiving the release. Health Records are kept by Health Services for 10 years after you leave Washington College.
