The Division of Student Health Services (SHS) is housed within the Department of Family and Community Medicine. Faculty and staff of the division are responsible for the health care of graduate, professional and international students at UAB.
- Tier 1 Student Health Plan – Required for all full-time students in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, Nursing, School of Health Professions, all international students, and many graduate students. Tier 1 provides for both medical clearance and access to provider care.
- Tier 2 Student Health Plan – Required for students in the School of Public Health and other defined programs. Tier 2 provides only for medical clearance.
All other students are strongly encouraged to participate with Student Health, but their participation is optional.
SHS clinicians (both male and female faculty/nurse practitioners) provide primary care to UAB students, including physical exams, mental health issues, women's health and access to immunizations. The SHS Clinic is located at 930 South 20th Street in the Community Health Services Building-20th Street.
