About Us

The Student Health Services Center (SHSC) at Purdue Calumet offers students primary care and prevention services. Our services include, but are not limited to, acute and chronic care for non-emergent conditions such as:

  • general physicals
  • gynecological exams
  • laboratory analysis
  • minor surgical procedures
  • health screenings
  • pharyngitis
  • bronchitis
  • allergic rhinitis
  • asthma
  • hypertension
  • diabetes

All blood drawn, pap smears, cultures and biopsies will be sent out to Quest Diagnostics for testing.

Tests performed in our clinic include:

  • strep screens
  • pregnancy testing
  • urinalysis
  • Influenza screen

In addition, students will be provided referrals to health care professionals in our area for further evaluation and treatment as needed. The SHSC will work with the Fitness and Wellness Center to expand services and provide follow up for health screenings. The SHSC will also make referrals to the professionals at the Fitness and Wellness center to provide a more comprehensive approach to treating chronic illness as well as prevention of illnesses and health maintenance. There is a $20 charge for office visits.  Follow up visits for the same illness are free.  Additionally,  there is a charge for all immunizations, pap smears, pregnancy tests, strep tests and some blood tests.  Since the SHSC will not accept any money at the time of service, all charges will be applied to the student’s PUID account.  For more information on prices, please visit the SHSC.
