As an affiliate of Washburn University, Washburn Tech post-secondary students may utilize the services of the Washburn University Student Health Service on the main campus. This service exists to enhance the learning and development of students and staff, through provision of prompt whole- patient-centered medical care, with a strong emphasis on education, prevention, affordability and patient advocacy. Student Health Services is located in 170 Morgan Hall, on the Washburn University Campus. Medical care, including physical exams, care of acute injuries and illness, immunizations and lab tests, and referral to outside providers as needed, is available to all enrolled students. Three nurse practitioners and a registered nurse are available for health care and counseling.
A low-cost health insurance program is available to all postsecondary students enrolled in six or more credit hours per semester. Literature regarding student insurance options is available in the Student Services Office. Students should be aware that many of the technical programs work with potentially dangerous equipment and that while students will be taught how to work safely around the equipment before they use it, accidents may still happen. For this reason, it is recommended that all students purchase health insurance.
