The goal of the North Miami Campus' Health Services office is to promote the total wellness of all students by encouraging each student to realize optimum physical wellness. A nurse is available to provide basic medical screening services to enrolled students. These visits cover basic medical diagnosis and care only. Students must be pre-screened by the nurse prior to consultation with the on-call physician. The university physician provides health services to students during the academic/school year.
A fee will be charged for any Admissions-required physicals and immunizations. The physician will directly bill students and/or their insurance for all services other than basic medical diagnosis and care pre-screened by the nurse. Bring your JWU ID and insurance information with you when you seek treatment.
