The Guide to the Campus Health Center

Picture this: You are getting ready for your first day of college and are looking back on your memories of high school and living at home. Stressed out and worried about your health, you start thinking about how you are going to miss having your parents to take care of you when you’re sick or being able to go to your primary care provider when you have questions about your health. But you needn’t worry! One of the pillars of Wayne State University’s campus is the Campus Health Center (CHC). As a newcomer to campus, you’ll definitely need the Campus Health Center 101.

We can help with acute illnesses, such as fevers, sore throats, infections, pink eye, and coughs, and we also can help anyone dealing with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure. 

We provide a variety of immunizations, such as tetanus (TdaP), hepatitis A and B, and HPV (Gardasil), just to name a few. We also do clearance exams, which often include urine drug screens and TB tests.  Visit our website to see all the available immunizations offered at the CHC.

We offer pre-travel health consultations, vaccinations (including flu shots at no out-of-pocket costs), medication prescriptions, and post-travel follow-up care. 

Are you feeling healthy but want to get a routine health care checkup? We provide routine health and wellness services, such as physicals, clearance exams, wellness exams, pap smears, and birth control.
