ATTENTION Veterinary Medicine Students (DVM and Vet Nursing)

All Purdue Veterinary Medicine students, not previously enrolled at Purdue, will be required to show compliance with state immunization requirements, found here, by completing the immunization information form located under the forms tab in the Patient Portal.

In addition to the State Immunization Requirements, the College of Veterinary Medicine requires that you complete the rabies vaccination series and get a TB test. PUSH provides all required vaccines and we will bill your insurance. To schedule an appointment call 765-494-1700 or schedule online using the Patient Portal.

Infusion Therapy
May 6, 2019

PUSH offers infusion therapy for chronic and acute medical conditions when prescribed by a referring physician, even if the physician is out of state. The PUSH nurse coordinator will work with your prescribing provider to appropriately carry out your treatment plan. We will work with your personal schedule as well. PUSH will bill your insurance for these services. We are in network with United Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and the Purdue student insurance plan administered by AHP. If you are interested in this service, please call 765-494-1700 and ask to speak with the infusion nurse coordinator.

Treatment of Psychological Diagnoses at PUSH
October 30, 2018

The Purdue University Student Health Service (PUSH) recognizes that psychological concerns and psychotropic medication are issues for a number of students and families. PUSH also recognizes that the resources of PUSH medical providers, within the scope of their clinical practice, have the training and skillset to provide limited services to students who present with an uncomplicated, single psychiatric diagnosis, and are in need of short term medication. PUSH providers may write one, 14-30 day, prescription for a student who has been on the same medication in the past three months with no untoward effects. PUSH providers may evaluate a student requesting new medication when the student brings in clinical records or summary from a previous therapist or psychiatrist (and in the case of ADHD, diagnostic testing). PUSH medical providers cannot provide the on-going level of care that students may need for a psychological concern. PUSH medical providers cannot provide care to students who have been hospitalized within the last 6 months, who may not be responding to psychotropic medication, or who are thinking of harming self or others. These students will be referred from PUSH medical providers to a higher level of care.

Voicing Concerns at PUSH
February 20, 2018

Our goal at the Purdue Student Health Center is to provide you with the best possible care and services. If your experience did not meet our goal, please let us know by contacting the Student Health Center Patient Advocate, Marilyn Foster, at 765-494-1720, or in person at PUSH room 132. Because we know that health insurance and billing can also be a source of concern, we want to help with that as well. Please contact Lori Blair, Business Services Manager at 765-496-3138 for billing and insurance concerns.
