The Health Center staff includes Board Certified psychiatrists and a Nurse Practitioner who provide short-term, stabilization-focused medication management care to Tulane students. Assistance with ongoing medication needs will be facilitated through referrals to appropriate clinicians in the community. Please note: The Psychiatry Team is located on the third floor of The Health Center.
Because of the time-limited nature of our services, if you are already taking psychiatric medications, including ADHD stimulants, we recommend that you continue to work with your home prescriber, or transfer care to a community provider. If you would like to transfer your care to a New Orleans provider, or initiate longer term services, our Care Coordinator can assist you in identifying a psychiatrist in the community to meet your needs.
If you begin care with a Student Health psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner, you will work with your clinician in determining a medication regimen that is optimal for you. Once you and your doctor have established that you are doing well on your medications, you will be assisted in connecting with the best long-term option.
Psychiatry appointments may be scheduled by calling 504-314-2277.
