On-Campus Student Health Service: The health clinic is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. Health services at the clinic are compa- rable to those offered by most private community physicians. The clinic is staffed by licensed physi- cians, nurse practitioners, and nurses. Services available include a medical clinic, women’s health clinic, diagnostic laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, allergy injections/immunizations, health promo- tion programs by health educators, nutrition analy- sis, etc. Students wanting to use the clinic should call (309) 438-2778 to schedule an appointment and bring their Illinois State Student I.D. card when checking in. Complicated illnesses or injuries requiring surgery or long-term care usually will be referred to an outside specialist. New students who have chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy, which require continuous monitoring and treatment, should retain the services of private physicians for the continuing supervision and management of their condition.

A complete schedule of benefits may be obtained from the Office of Student Insurance, Student Services Building.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
