UHS provides a wide range of Travel Health services. Choose the situation that applies to you below to learn more.
If needed, undergraduate students, graduate students and eligible student dependents may schedule a confidential in-person travel health consultation with a UHS travel heath provider to discuss chronic medical conditions, special diets, prescription medications and strategies for meeting their health needs when traveling internationally.
Students and student dependents who travel by themselves are encouraged to seek travel health advice by scheduling a Travel Health Consultation appointment at UHS.
Students and student dependents who are not near campus and need in person services may also use the Centers for Disease Control's tool to find a local travel health provider in the extended community (additional fees may apply). Students and student dependents should check with their medical insurance providers regarding off-campus services.
It is strongly recommended that in person travel health consultations be completed at least 6 weeks prior to departure so that any needed travel immunizations can be administered in time to build full immunity. However, even if you are traveling last minute, you may benefit from travel health services (e.g., partial immunization protection).
All students who seek travel health consultations are expected to review this Travel Health and Safety information prior to their appointment.
In the majority of cases, student group travelers do not need individual in person travel health appointments as travel health advice by email is sufficient. However, if students have specific health concerns that they would like to discuss with a travel health provider, they may schedule an individual travel health appointment.
Students experiencing any illness, injury, or animal bite while traveling on a University sponsored travel are encouraged to contact ISOS immediately to help coordinate their care.
Students traveling on personal trips not sponsored by the University are encouraged to purchase individual memberships through ISOS for the duration of their travel.
The Student Health Plan (SHP) covers medical expenses worldwide. Students with other medical insurance should contact their individual insurance carrier to understand their medical coverage while abroad.
