Travel Medicine

AHS provides physicals, some immunizations and written prescriptions for students traveling abroad for educational or personal reasons.  Any student who wishes to make an appointment must present their  required paperwork in advance  to the office staff  before an appointment is made so that the appropriate amount of time with the practitioner can be scheduled.  Students must schedule travel abroad appointments within the allotted time periods during the semester (no later than one month prior to their departure date).  A Study Abroad Questionnaire must also be completed and dropped off before your appointment. ( See Forms and Links to download appropriate form).  Appointments will not be scheduled the week before any scheduled College break or during Saturday hours.
