Health and Well-being Scope of Services

Health Center

Welcome to the Miami University family and Oxford community! As you transition to campus, please know Miami values the holistic well-being of its community. Student Counseling Services (SCS) and Student Health Services (SHS) are two departments in the Division of Student Life specifically dedicated to this effort.

These departments are composed of talented, multi-disciplinary teams with many years of collegiate health experience. Please review this broad summary of the services SCS and SHS provide to determine if action is recommended for your health and success while at Miami.

Emotional Well-being

SCS offers students brief counseling services (individual, group, couples, crisis consultation) on a variety of presenting concerns. If you are seeking specialized or intensive clinical services that require meeting with the same therapist beyond one semester or more than once per week, we recommend receiving care by a specialist in the local community. SCS can partner with you in the referral process if necessary. Additionally, if you currently work with a professional in your hometown and can continue to see them, we recommend you continue with your current provider.

Medical Well-being

SHS provides outpatient primary and episodic care with a broad host of services including general medicine and injury care, gynecology, sexual health and wellness care, immunizations and travel medicine, laboratory, physical therapy, pharmacy, and psychiatric services. If you have preexisting complex medical care needs, please contact SHS to discuss developing a coordinated plan of care while you are in Oxford.

Learn more about SHS.

We strive to be active in the coordination of your treatment needs and our staff is more than happy to discuss your unique situation prior to your arrival on campus. If you would like to talk with a professional or need helping transferring care, please call the Student Counseling Service at 513-529-4634 or Student Health Services at 513-529-3000.

We look forward to helping your time at Miami be healthy and productive!
