Health Services

Philander Smith College provides a comprehensive health care program to all enrolled students. The health care services are provided by Martie Savage, R.N., and Dr. Forrest Miller, a Family Practice Physician. The Health Services Department’s primary goals are to promote health care management, facilitate disease prevention, provide health care information and increase awareness of health issues significant to this population. These services are available for the faculty, staff and student body.

In an effort to achieve these goals, Philander Smith College also has available for the full time undergraduate student a supplemental health insurance policy designed to absorb some of the financial burden often incurred as a result of receiving health care services. The insurance covers sickness and injuries not covered or payable by any other plan (or from any other source) providing medical expense benefits. The services rendered by the RN and the Family Practice Physician are provided at no cost to the students.
 
Location: The Health Services is located in the Health and Wellness Center on the 1st Floor of the Fine Arts Building.
