Here at the Campus Health Center, our mission is to help all Wayne State students stay healthy so that they can attain their educational, professional, and personal goals. We aim to do so by providing healthcare services to prevent and treat common physical illnesses. We also work to promote the health and well-being of students at Wayne State University. We partner with departments across campus to provide students with a well-rounded understanding of health—both physical health and well-being—as well as mental health, exercise, and diet. We also educate students on an array of important medical topics, from sexual health to women’s health to preventative care, and we help them navigate the medical and insurance systems as many are on their own for the first time. Along with the health clinic, we also do outreach events in buildings across campus and in campus housing to make health care more accessible to students.
Further, we aim to educate and inspire a new generation of healthcare providers. We help students in many departments across campus reach their educational goals by offering practicums, internships, and co-ops with us. We want to positively influence future clinicians and health professionals by teaching and mentoring them throughout their education.
