CSUSB Health Center
The Mission of the Student Health Center is to provide compassionate, accessible and cost effective clinical and preventative health service for the student community.
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

One of the most important things we do to earn your trust is to participate voluntarily in the quality assessment program of the Accreditation for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Our accreditation tells you that AAAHC's independent team of health care professionals has taken a close look at us and has found that we meet their rigorous, nationally recognized standards for quality health care services.
