Ambulatory care and health education is the goal of the Campus Health Center.
All students are eligible to use the Health Center. No fee is charged for routine visits to the Health Center, though there is a nominal charge for medications, supplies and complete physical exams.
The Center, located in the Eckford Building, is administered by the Dean of the College of Nursing & Speech-Language Pathology. It is staffed by Nurse Practitioners. The Nurse Practitioners are master's prepared registered nurses who in their expanded role are licensed to diagnose and treat many common conditions.
The protocols for treatment are developed in conjunction with the Mississippi Board of Nursing and a collaborating physician, who is available at all times for consultation and/or referral.
When the Health Center is closed the back up physicians' clinic, other local clinics or the emergency room at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle may be used by students requiring care.
Student health insurance may be obtained through a commercial carrier. Applications and brochures explaining available coverage may be obtained in the Health Center and the office of the Comptroller.
