Appointments

As a student at Brown University, you have access to a variety of health professionals, including staff physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nutritionists and nurses.

Same-day appointments are typically available if you call ahead. If you have a preference as to the gender of the person who examines and treats you, or if you feel more comfortable having a chaperone in the room, please tell the team assistant when you make an appointment. Staff members will do their best to accommodate your wishes. Health Services is located at 450 Brook St. in the new Health and Wellness Center.
