Medical Assessments &
Physical Examinations

Providers perform medically-indicated assessments and exams for our patients. Make sure to fill out your health care history online through the student portal. Once completed, your information will link securely and directly to your SHCS medical chart.


Nutrition Consultation

Healthy living is important! SHCS providers can meet with patients to discuss diet, general nutrition and eating behaviors. Providers can also do nutritional and exercise assessments for maintaining health.


Lab Work & Diagnostic Tests

There is no charge for routine and medically necessary lab work when ordered by a SHCS provider and performed at Quest Diagnostics. There may be a small co-pay for routine and medically necessary diagnostic tests when ordered by a SHCS provider and performed at UCSF Medical Center. For non-medically necessary lab work and diagnostic tests, students must pay a nominal fee. Consult with a SHCS provider to obtain requisitions and costs.
