Campus Health staff is dedicated to encouraging and maintaining the health of all students. For School of Medicine students, we have a downtown location in Elks Place for easier access if you are primarily based on the Downtown Campus. However, you may use the services at any location of your choice.
Degree-seeking Tulane University students are required to carry health insurance coverage equal to or greater than the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance plan (T-SHIP). You have the option of enrolling in T-SHIP or keep your own insurance plan (including your parents’, spouse’s, etc.). Your plan must provide comparable coverage to T-SHIP. This means that you have full access to providers in the New Orleans area including mental health services on a non-urgent as well as urgent basis. Check your existing plan to ensure providers are available in our area.
If you decide to opt out of T-SHIP you MUST make sure to WAIVE or decline enrollment by the posted deadline; otherwise, the T-SHIP premium will be charged to your account.
All active medical students pay a mandatory, annual, Student Health & Wellness Fee which grants unlimited access to Campus Health services.
School of Medicine students have a specific set of immunization requirements due to the nature of their studies and laboratory work.
If you have been exposed to blood or bodily fluids, such as a needle stick or splash exposure, please follow these BBPE instructions immediately.
