A wide variety of services to support student health and well-being are available at the Health Center. To learn more about our medical staff, please see our list of Providers.
General Health Care
Our providers are trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions, including skin conditions, colds and flu, infections, depression, injuries and more. They can also assist with management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, Crohn’s disease and more. A few of our providers have special interests in unique areas of medicine, see our Provider Bios to learn more about our provider staff.
Students have the convenience of having their x-rays taken here at the Health Center. Because we use the latest all-digital technology, most x-rays have an initial-read 20-minute turnaround time, so students rarely have to come back or wait for a phone call to be diagnosed. All x-rays are sent to a consultant radiologist for confirmation of diagnoses. Fees vary based on x-rays performed.
For quick diagnosis, we have our own Physician Office Laboratory which performs a variety of in-house labs. We also send specimens to outside labs as specified by your insurance plan. For patients without insurance, we offer affordable prices on our lab services.
The Purple Pod is devoted to providing a warm and sensitive environment for gynecological care. There is no charge for an office visit or examination, but certain procedures and laboratory tests (i.e. pap smear), do require relatively small fees.
The Purple Pod provides a wide array of services, including: routine gynecologic exams, contraceptive counseling, testing for sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy testing and counseling, lifestyle education and counseling, and management of certain gynecologic conditions.
We offer a wide variety of immunizations for your optimum health. This includes MMR, Hepatitis B, Meningitis, HPV, T-dap, TB/PPD tests, Typhoid/Yellow Fever and more. Most vaccines are covered by your health insurance. For those paying out-of-pocket, our prices are often less than local Health Department prices. We also offer Free HPV/Gardasil vaccines for qualifying students ages 18 and up.
Each fall, starting in October, UCF Student Health Services offers students, faculty and staff flu shots. Visit our homepage at that time or call the Health Center for information.
We provide a variety of sexual health services including STD testing, well-woman exams, safer-sex counseling and more. Also, see our Calendar of Events for screening events and educational programs.
Our providers can assist you in dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, sleep issues and more. We can also refer you to biofeedback on-campus which will assist you in identifying stressors so that you can manage them.
For patients who are more comfortable communicating in their primary language, interpretation services are available, through either bi-lingual staff members, or by use of a telephone medical translation service.
We will provide students with a small sharps container and swap it out for a new container when you turn in a full one for safe disposal. Ask a CAN nurse for assistance.
