Medical Services

Eligibility and Cost

Services of the medical providers are available to students and their spouses or domestic partners. Continuing, full-time students who have paid the student fee are eligible for routine office visits at no charge from the week of Boiler Gold Rush through graduation. All other eligible students and spouses or domestic partners are eligible to be seen, but will be charged for office visits. All other medical services do have charges associated with them. This includes, but is not limited to, services such as physical exams, office procedures, medication administration, laboratory tests, x-rays, and physical therapy. Please ask if you have questions about the cost of services.

Provides primary care for both acute and chronic medical conditions by appointment. Medical Clinic providers are both physicians and nurse practitioners and you are encouraged to see the same provider whenever you need care. Get to know our providers on our provider biography page.

Prescription Management of ADD/ADHD

As a new Purdue student, you may have some questions about managing your ADD/ADHD. Options are available on campus and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) may be the best source of therapy and medical management for you. However, if you have no other psychological concerns and you have a history of stable and medically managed ADD/ADHD, PUSH medical providers may be the answer for prescription management. Because PUSH has a specific process to ensure that you are receiving the care you need, please review the information below and make your Triage appointment (765-494-1700) soon after you arrive on campus in the fall.

Make an appointment to meet with a PUSH Triage nurse. The triage nurse will discuss your current medications and the treatment history. 

Bring a copy of your:  

  • Neuropsychological evaluation (no more than 2 years old if your most recent testing was done before age 18 or no more than 4 years old if your most recent testing was done after age 18).
  • Summary of past medical course from the previous providing physician or physician extender.

If you do not have a recent neuropsychological evaluation, you must complete one before the PUSH providers will prescribe your medication. Please plan your Triage Nurse visit to PUSH during your first two weeks on campus. It may take up to 8 weeks to get your testing, appointment and prescription. 

PUSH is happy to assist you in the management of your ADD/ADHD needs while you are at Purdue. If we cannot provide the assistance you need, we will provide you with alternative resources. If you have questions, please call 765-494-1700 or email PUSH at shc@purdue.edu.

Sexual & Reproductive Health Services

Emergency Contraception counseling is also available when the Student Health Center is open, Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. PUSH does not carry or dispense Emergency Contraception (aka "the Morning-After Pill"), however, the Purdue University Pharmacy does carry Emergency Contraception, and typically at a cost far below that of other pharmacies. In addition to examinations, Sexual & Reproductive Health Services provides placement and removal of contraceptive devices.

A word about Gender Affirming Care: With the recent retirement of one of our providers, we have had to reluctantly discontinue our hormone therapy as part of Gender Affirming Care. At this time, we do not have another provider with the experience to do this type of care. We do, however, have providers that are interested in gaining this experience, but opportunities to do so are limited. We hope to be able to begin providing this important service again in the near future. In the meantime, all PUSH providers are still available to help you with your other healthcare needs.

There are two local providers that have the education, experience and expertise to manage hormonal Gender Affirming Care. Their information is listed below:

Eating Disorder Care

At Purdue University Student Health we recognize that disordered eating is often a cause of serious concern. Specific PUSH medical providers are available to provide confidential, compassionate and individualized care for patients with these complex medical disorders.

PUSH providers believe that a coordinated multidisciplinary team approach is the safest and most effective way to treat these disorders. If you choose to seek care for an eating disorder through PUSH, we will plan to work as a team with your other care providers.

The first step to identifying how we can best meet your needs is with an appointment with a member of our Triage Nurse team. Call today at 765-494-1700 to schedule your first appointment.
