Accompanying guests are restricted from entering the clinic, unless medically necessary.
 Use of high-touch items including the waiting room computer, tablets and pens are restricted.
 Our staff are required to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in accordance with CDC guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 Enhanced and rigorous cleaning and disinfection protocol has been put in place.

 Clinic occupany has been reduced to promote physical distancing within the clinic.
 Hand sanitizers are available throughout the clinic.
 Barriers were installed at the triage station and front desk.

The Health Services is a primary care facility staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses. The Health Services Office is funded by the Health Services fee assessed to students registered for credit-bearing courses who are eligible to utilize the Health Services Office.

The Health Services provides general medical and gynecological care, and carries a limited supply of medications free of charge to students who paid the Health Services fee. Comprehensive lab tests needed for diagnostic purposes are performed on site by Quest and Labcorp. Any time you are ill, or have questions concerning your health, we are here to help you. We encourage you not only to use the services, but to offer suggestions and comments.

A referral list of consultants is available in cases where a specialist's evaluation and treatment are indicated; however, these and some other services, such as X-rays and lab tests not provided at FIT, are at the student's own expense. Students may consult their health insurance for coverage on these services.

If you have any questions, comments, and/or suggestions regarding the Health Services website, please stop by the Health Services at Room A402 in the David Dubinsky Student Center or call (212) 217-4190.
