Medical Care

Student Health Services is where you go for basic primary care services. Our exams include a history review, discussion of current concerns, a thorough physical, laboratory screening tests, appropriate cancer-screening tests, and at times tests specific to a medical condition.

Primary care also includes periodic age-appropriate health assessments, evaluation, testing, and treatment for accidents or illnesses, acute or chronic.

Immunization Requirements

We prioritize the health and safety of all our students, which is why we do as much as we can to prevent diseases through immunization. Immunization is required for many activities at Rutgers University–Newark, and you will not be allowed to participate unless you get specific immunizations. Current information regarding Immunization requirements, deadlines and exemptions can be found here.
