University Health Services
UHS Announcement: UHS will be closed on Tuesday July 4th for the Holiday. The clinic will be open on July 3rd.
At University Health Services (UHS), we are privileged to provide medical, mental health, and wellness services to students, residents, fellows, and trainees on the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus, which includes the School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the School of Nursing, and the Berman Institute of Bioethics.
Individuals enrolled full-time are required to have health insurance. UHS administers a comprehensive health insurance program with Johns Hopkins EHP (Student Health Program). Students, trainees, and their spouses, same-sex domestic partners, and dependent children are eligible for the Student Health Program. Spouses/domestic partners who are on the Student Health Program are also eligible to be seen at the UHS clinic for primary care and mental health services.
Our health care providers consist of internal medicine physicians, psychiatrists, a licensed psychologist, nurse practitioners (including a women’s health nurse practitioner), and licensed clinical social workers assisted by our clinical and administrative staff. UHS staff will assist you with your medical appointment scheduling, billing and insurance questions. Our team is committed to providing individualized care focused on your health care needs.
Regardless of whether you are insured through the Student Health Program or elsewhere, students and trainees have access to UHS. There is no charge for clinic visits if you are 1) a full-time, East Baltimore-based student or postdoctoral fellow in the Schools of Medicine, Public Health, or Nursing, 2) house staff or clinical fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital or Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, or 3) a spouse/domestic partner enrolled in the Student Health Program. However, additional services such as labs, x-rays, and medications will be billed to your health insurance.
