Health and Wellness Services

In order to assist with the continued COVID-19 response and campus protocols, the Health and Wellness Center has adjusted the mode of delivery for medical and counseling services.

Medical Services

We have shifted our medical services to a phone triage model of care. In-person appointments will be based on clinical necessity. General health services are available over a HIPAA compliant Zoom platform.

Walk-in appointments are not available.  In-person services are determined on a case-by-case basis after triage by the medical team and are available Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The office is closed during the weekend.

To schedule, change, or cancel an appointment, please call us at (585) 385-8280 or email healthcenter@sjfc.edu.

We consider TimelyCare as an adjunctive part of our services. Students may be guided to these resources as a first step.

Note: The Health and Wellness Center does not administer allergy injections. For information on how to obtain allergy injections, review the Allergy Injection Protocol.

Counseling

The counseling team at the Health and Wellness Center provides free and confidential mental health services and resources to undergraduate and graduate St. John Fisher College students.

Counseling services include:

  • Mental health diagnostic assessment
  • Consultation
  • Crisis intervention

Medical Excuse Policy

It is the student's responsibility to discuss missed classes with his/her instructor(s). For more information, please review the Medical Excuse Policy.
