STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE The Student Health Service is located on the lower level of the Doctor's Office Complex. Students are provided with advisory and screening services, and, in many instances, a degree of out-patient care and preventive medicine. In the event of more serious illness, the service offers helpful guidance and assistance in obtaining referral, consultation, hospitalization, or emergency treatment. The service is limited to students. It is not available to their spouses or other dependents.
All matriculated students are required to maintain compliance with the University Health and Immunization policy. http://www.umdnj.edu/oppmweb/Policies/HTML/StudentServices/00-01-25-40_00.html. If you have any questions regarding your compliance status please contact the Student Health & Wellness Center.

STUDENT WELLNESS PROGRAM Student Wellness Program is an outpatient treatment facility for medical, dental and graduate students in need of psychiatric help. The service is not available to student's dependents. Dependents may, however, be seen in consultation. Treatment here refers primarily to relatively short-term restorative intervention in problems that may have arisen during a student's stay in school, and not to long-term, in-depth psychotherapy. When it is necessary to have further therapy on a long-term basis, the student will be referred to private care.

COMPUTER SERVICES The Academic Computing Services Center at NJMS provides investigators and their students with off-the-shelf applications as well as powerful development tools for biomedical signals processing, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, supercomputing, research and publication graphics, statistics, general mathematics and text formatting. The Center is linked to similar Centers at other units of UMDNJ as well as to many departmental computing systems through a sophisticated high-speed network providing a variety of resource-sharing services. This network is in turn connected to the Internet, allowing investigators at UMDNJ to exchange information with users on thousands of computers throughout the United States and elsewhere.
