Student Health and Wellness

Participating in a rigorous academic program can put stress on the mind and body so it is important that students pay attention to their health and wellness needs. An “Oasis” room is located on site which allows students the opportunity to visit a quiet room to pray, meditate, or just reflect on their thoughts.

Students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program are offered the opportunity to join a Gold’s Gym which is conveniently located within walking distance of the school. The gym features weights, weight machines, and cardio machines in addition to a variety of fitness classes.

Health services are available on the main campus with hours on Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary. For more information about Health Services, click on the following link: http://www.uiw.edu/health/index.html

All Doctor of Physical Therapy students are required to carry health insurance. Students with their own health insurance can complete a waiver form; otherwise, health insurance coverage will be provided through the university.
