A note from the Health Services ...
Our primary client is you, the Austin College student. It is not our intention to replace your primary physician, but to serve as a substitute at times when you may become ill. We want to help you understand some of those hazards, how to prevent them, and, when necessary, how to treat and care for yourself. Health Services will strive to foster relationships which will contribute to an atmosphere of mutual respect and assist students in their personal growth and wellness. We want you to have a healthy and productive career at Austin College. Good health is important to insure that success. We look forward to getting to know each of you!
