University of Portland Summer Session Bulletin 2019

University Health Center

The services and programs of the University Health Center are made available to all Summer Session students to promote wellness and enhance quality of life at the University. The focus of care is on the individual student with a concern for overall growth and development in academic, social- emotional, physical, and spiritual domains.

Confidential personal counseling and health care are provided at no cost, with nominal fees charged for psychological testing, medication, laboratory studies and medical supplies. 

Health and Counseling Services: Advanced nursing services are available for most common health concerns on an appointment basis only. Referrals to other health care professionals are made as appropriate. Health promotion services offer challenges and opportunities for exploring lifestyle choices which impact health. Wellness counseling in the areas of nutrition, stress management, sexuality, AIDS awareness, and exercise are also available. We are not an emergency care facility. In the event of a medical or mental health emergency call Public Safety at 4444 or call 911.

A range of counseling services facilitates personal growth and development. Skillful professional counselors can assist you to make behavior changes, improve relationship skills, enhance coping effectiveness, improve decision-making, and facilitate growth and development at the University.
