Routine Physicals and Annual GYN Exams

Currently, the high volume of sick students is requiring us to make some adjustments to our scheduling.  During the month of November, routine physical examinations and well-women examinations (pap smears) will need to be scheduled with community providers outside of the student health center.  If you are on the student health plan and need a referral to an outside provider, please email shc@american.edu to obtain one.  If you are studying abroad in Belgium next semester and need to have their physical exams done at the student health center, please email us at shc@american.edu to make arrangements.

After Hours Care

Illnesses don’t just happen between the hours of 9 am and 6 pm. Getting sick in the middle of the night can be a scary and frustrating experience for students and adults alike. While the health center may be closed after hours, we still want to make sure that students can have urgent health questions and concerns addressed as soon as possible.
