Hello Jumbos,
In today's email, we continue with introductions and information on several campus departments offering services and confidential support. Please take your time to explore the information below and feel free to contact any of the departments with further questions.

Health Service

Located on the Medford/Somerville campus across from Fletcher Field, Health Service is your place for primary health care. SMFA students are also able to receive primary care through Atrius Health at Kenmore-Harvard Vanguard downtown. All students have access to services after hours in an emergency.
While we anticipate care being somewhat different in the Fall due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and walk-in appointments being suspended, all primary care visits are covered by your University Health and Wellness Fee!
Students can make an appointment by calling 617-627-3350. (Put this number in your phone!)
We provide a range of services and supports. Here are just a few:

All services are confidential and free to undergraduates with the exception of medication visits with our psychiatry staff. Students looking for long-term psychotherapy or psychiatric management are encouraged to utilize CMHS' community provider referral page to begin contacting providers around Tufts or at home to determine availability and fit.
