Thielen Student Health Center is located on the corner of Sheldon Avenue and Union Drive, just west of Beyer Hall. Services include doctor and nurse consultations, physical exams, laboratory and x-ray services, sports medicine and physical therapy, immunizations, pharmacy, diet and nutrition consultation, fitness consultation, stress management, wellness assessment, workshops, free and confidential HIV testing, and referral services.
The student health fee partially finances the services of the Thielen Student Health Center and is charged to all students taking 5 or more credits each semester. Those taking 4 or fewer credits may access services by paying the health fee. Spouses/domestic partners of students who opt to pay the health fee also have access to services. Students with less than 5 credits who elect not to pay the health fee may still be seen at the Thielen Student Health Center, but will be charged for the services provided. International students and their spouses/domestic partners are required to participate and pay the health fee. The health fee is not a substitute for health insurance.
Monday and Tuesday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Hours vary during breaks and summer session. The Thielen Student Health Center is closed during all University Holidays. Patients are seen by appointment. Please call 515-294-5801. Each patient has the option of seeing the provider he/she requests.
Thielen Student Health Center phones are automatically switched to the First Nurse at Mary Greeley Medical Center so urgent health questions can be answered during the hours the Thielen Student Health Center is closed.
Service is available for emergency problems after regular clinic hours at Mary Greeley Medical Center Emergency Room. The cost is the responsibility of the student and/or the student’s insurance plan.
