Medical Services

Medical Services provides routine and urgent medical care, travel medicine, immunizations, as well as sexual health services, reproductive and gynecological services, LGBTQ health care, and confidential HIV testing. Students are encouraged to make appointments online with their health care provider (bios and photos are available online).

Medical Services is organized into three practice groups, Amsterdam, Broadway, and Morningside (all three are located within the same facility), to provide high quality, accessible, well-coordinated care. Each practice group is comprised of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and support staff. This model of care helps simplify and streamline more routine administrative needs and processes, including obtaining a referral, ordering lab tests, or receiving a prescription refills, for our student patients. That’s why appointments made with your designated group practice are strongly encouraged.

For more serious acute illness or injury, students can also be seen in Urgent Care during Medical Services scheduled clinical hours. All follow up will be conducted within the group practice.


Why are there three practice groups in Medical Services ? Can I use any of them?

Each of the three practice groups has physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and support staff. Students are randomly assigned to one of the three groups. We encourage you to continue to plan your appointments within the same group for the best possible, continuous care. You can easily change your designated provider by when you make an appointment through Open Communicator or by phone, but we encourage you to stay within one group as much as possible.

Staff biographies are available to learn more about your Primary Care Provider (PCP) and your practice group or identify others.

How do I make a medical appointment?

Use our secure appointment portal, Open Communicator, to make an appointment online, or call us at (212) 854-7426.

Can I be seen the same day at Medical Services?

There are appointments available every day for “same day service” within your practice group. Generally, you can search for “same-day” appointment up to 18 hours ahead of the appointment. You may also contact Medical Services starting after 8 a.m. if you’re unable to locate an available appointment online.

For serious illness or injury when an appointment within your practice group is not available, you may drop in to be seen in Urgent Care. This service opens at 11 a.m.
