Services We Provide
The Student Health Center provides first aid and basic out-patient care services. We have a full time staff Monday through Friday to care for your needs. First aid is always available during clinic hours to anyone on campus. Please dial 911 for emergencies from anywhere on campus for assistance. We are staffed with Doctors, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Medical Assistants, and a Pharmacy. Our center has contracted with local lab and X-ray services for our students. Counseling and Psychological Services also has a full time staff of Marriage and Family Therapists, licensed Psychologists and supervised interns. Please visit Counseling & Psychological Services for more information.
Health services are also offered at the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus in the R.D. and Joan Dale Hubbard Student Health and Psychological Counseling Center located in HS-119.
As an enrolled student at CSUSB, you pay a Student Health Fee and are eligible for health and counseling services at the Student Health Center and Counseling & Psychological Services office. Your Student Health Fee supports and finances the operation of the Health Center. Although basic health care is provided, treatment for major illnesses and injury (e.g., motor vehicle accidents), as well as certain conditions requiring a specialist or hospitalization, are beyond the scope of service. Students are referred to an outside provider for these illnesses or injuries and it is the student's responsibility to pay the costs associated with the referral. It is important to carry health insurance. Faculty and staff are not eligible for services except in case of emergency.
Please call ahead to schedule an appointment and with any inquiries you may have. There is NO fee for routine office visits

What You Should Know About Meningococcal Disease
Meningococcal (me-nin-je-kok-ul) disease is a serious illness caused by bacteria that can infect the blood or areas around the brain and spinal cord. Infection can lead to brain damage, disability, and rapid death.
It is well known that the close quarters of campus residence hall living puts students at increased risk for meningococcal disease.
It is important to get a meningococcal vaccination. If the first dose was given prior to age 16, a booster dose is needed for students entering college.
Practice good hygiene measures such as not smoking, avoiding secondhand smoke, and not sharing drinking and eating utensils and other items that have contacted saliva. Practice good nutrition and get plenty of sleep.
Know the early signs of the disease (sudden onset of fever, headache, and stiff neck). It can start with symptoms similar to influenza (flu), and will often also cause nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, rash, and confusion. It is important to get quick treatment.
Serogroup B Meningococcal Disease Outbreaks - Information from the American College Health Association
The following information on serogroup B meningococcal disease outbreaks is provided by ACHA's Vaccine-Preventable Disease Advisory Committee after consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The ongoing serogroup B meningococcal disease outbreak at Princeton University brings national attention to an issue of longstanding importance to the college health community. The dramatic decline in cases of meningococcal disease since the late 1990s coincides with the widespread use of the quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine in adolescents and students entering college.
Outbreaks of serogroup B meningococcal disease are rare. Since the first case last spring, Princeton officials have collaborated diligently with local and state public health officials and the CDC. After the third case (which defines an outbreak), CDC initiated discussions with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for permission to acquire Bexsero, the serogroup B meningococcal vaccine that is licensed in Europe and Australia, to be made available for this specific outbreak. Cases of meningococcal disease are reportable in every state.
