Welcome to the Trinity Community!
Health Center Welcome
All students registered at Trinity Washington University are encouraged to access the services of The Health and Wellness Center, which is located on the 4th Floor of the Main Hall. We are open Monday through Friday from 8am – 4:30 pm throughout the school year. Our clinic is staffed with three Nurse Practitioners, a Counselor, and an Administrative Assistant. We provide our students with comprehensive medical and counseling services to serve our mission of keeping you as healthy as possible during your academic pursuits at Trinity. We are excited to meet you and hope you will utilize our Health Center for ALL your medical and mental health needs.
Medical or Counseling appointments can be made by calling (202) 884-9615 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our Primary Care Providers are experienced clinicians focused on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for our students to receive medical care. They are skilled at diagnosing and treating acute illness/injury, performing physicals/well-woman exams, and managing chronic illnesses. We are able to write prescriptions or dispense medications from our pharmacy as needed. We also perform comprehensive laboratory testing services right in our clinic for your convenience.
We know that college can be stressful and many of our students find that talking to a counselor can help them cope with the demands of academic life. Our counselor has 20+ years of experience supporting students as they navigate relationship troubles, cope with stress, and manage anger. She is also skilled in the treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. She holds individual counseling sessions as well as group support classes and campus-wide health awareness programs.
In order to provide you with the best care possible, we first need to learn about your current health and past medical history. The university requires the following forms to be returned to the Health Center BEFORE AUGUST 19, 2017. All forms are sent to accepted students in their Admissions packet, or can be obtained by contacting the Health Center at email@example.com.
- Student Health History and Physical Examination form includes immunization verification, Tuberculosis Screening, provider signature and clearance for school activities.
- Meningococcal Vaccine is required for all students living on campus + student-athletes.
- Signed HIPPA confidentiality acknowledgment
All students are mandated by the District of Columbia to have comprehensive health insurance while enrolled in school. We are pleased to offer a university sponsored health insurance plan through Cigna. All full-time CAS students are automatically enrolled in the Trinity Student Insurance Plan and are billed for this coverage each semester. If you have other health insurance coverage, you may waive the student insurance plan and avoid being billed by completing the waiver form located on our website.
For more information about student insurance, health fees, and waivers please visit OUR INSURANCE PAGE.
We look forward to meeting you; please reach out if we can be of any further assistance!
