The office of Health Services offers ambulatory care to enrolled Earlham students and provides health services to the campus community during times of crisis. Students with chronic or long-term illness are encouraged to maintain the care of their home practitioner or to establish themselves with a doctor in the community.
We believe students’ health and well-being are critical to their collegiate success. Our goal is to help students reach and maintain an optimal level of good health.
Health Services’ objectives are to:
- Provide care for acute illnesses and injuries.
- Help students learn how to care for minor illnesses or injuries and to determine when it is appropriate to seek medical care.
- Further their knowledge about their body and health conditions so that they can make responsible decisions about personal health through their lives.
- Provide information and programs on health issues and wellness.
