The Midway University offers student health services through our health clinic, located in the lobby of Buster Hall. Our clinic supports the educational mission of the institution by providing information on health-related issues so that students may make informed choices on matters that affect their health.
The clinic is operated by a registered nurse and provides treatment of minor injuries and illnesses, as well as the following services:
- Equipment loans
- Allergy shots
- Referrals on health care needed outside of University services
- Dispensation of “over the counter” medicines
Services are available to all Midway students. Services rendered at the clinic are confidential.
The clinic is open between the hours of 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The campus clinic is open during the academic year only. The clinic is closed for all holidays and major breaks in the academic calendar such as Fall, Spring, Winter, and Summer Breaks.
There are no campus facilities to accommodate students who are confined to bed and need round-the-clock nursing care. Ambulance services and medical care received at facilities other than the clinic are the student’s financial responsibility.
Each residential student is required to submit a completed student health form prior to moving into the residence hall. Residential students are required to have received the following immunizations: tetanus toxoid, diphtheria, polio, and two doses of MMR.
Certain programs and activities may also require commuter students to submit completed health forms, including documentation of immunizations, prior to registration or participation.
It is the policy of Midway University Student Health Services to maintain the medical files of full-time enrolled students for seven years either after graduation or last patient contact. After that time all medical records are shredded, in accordance with HIPAA regulations.
