Students who think of a student health
service as an overworked nurse and a doctor
who comes around once a week are in for a
surprise when they visit the Student Health
Service here.
The UNC Infirmary', located in the North
Carolina Memorial Hospital (NCMH)
building, boasts a staff of nine full-time
physicians, laboratory and X-ray services,
specialty clinics, and a 40-bed inpatient
facility.
Although the infirmary is located in the
NCM H building, it is an independent facility
funded only by student fees.
Since students pay a mandatory health fee
of $37.50 in their student activity fees,
professional services rendered by infirmary
Sorority rush
A picnic at 5:30 p.m.. Thursday, in the
Forest Theatre marks the beginning of
sorority rush, sponsored by the Panhellenic
Council.
An introduction to sorority living, rush
will be held from August 28 through
September 9.
All UNC undergraduate women with at
least a 2.0 average are eligible to participate.
The only requirement is that those wishing to
take part must register by Aug 28.
Registration is held daily in Room 262-B of
the Student Union.
During rush, potential pledges visit
sorority houses every evening for a week. In
a generally informal atmosphere, the girls
observe sorority life and decide whether to
not to join. Attending rush parties does not
obligate the girls to join a sorority.
Health Ed 33
Health Education 33. "Topics in Human
Sexuality." will be offered this fall despite an
announcement made in the spring that the
popular course would not be held this
semester.
. The course which will focus on sexuality
through the life cycle will consist of one
lecture session and two discussion sessions a
week.
Fifty spaces are available for the course
and students may register for it during drop
.adcLBV feieju;ss-:iUbje., given , to.
physicians are free to them. Students,
however, are charged for some medication
and treatment by outside physicians.
Student health fees were raised this year
from $30 per student per semester to $37.50.
The increase, said Dr. Donald Harris, health
educator for the Student Health Services, is
due to rising medical costs. The health
service operated at a deficit last year, but
Harris said he hopes the fee increase will
prevent another deficit this year.
Last year, the infirmary treated over
70.000 patients in its two-floor facility. The
Student Health Service also treats an
estimated 2,500 to 3,000 minor injuries each
month in its office behind Woollen Gym.
Harris encourages students especially
new students - to familiarize themselves
with the services provided by the infirmary.
He explained that the infirmary can handle
most health care needs for students at a
modest cost.
In addition to a rapid treatment clinic for
routine matters, the infirmary has several
specialty clinics including:
A dermatology clinic held Monday
through Friday each week.
An orthopedic clinic conducted by
members of the NCMH orthopedic staff to
treat complicated orthopedic problems.
A sports medicine clinic to treat athletic
related injuries.
A gynecology clinic staffed by NCMH
doctors for complicated gynecological
problems. (Patients must be screened by a
regular health service physician before being
admitted to this clinic).
A Women's Health Clinic which provides
weekly educational group discussions and
examinations for contraceptives, venereal
disease, abortion and other topics dealing
with interpersonal relations and human
sexuality.
Also, the infirmary has a mental health
clinic staffed by psychiatrists, pyschologists,
social workers, and a couples counselor.
Students can make appointment to visit the
clinics by calling the Student Health Service
office.
Should a student's condition require
overnight care, the infirmary inpatient
facility provides rooms at no additional
charge, although a student will be charged
for meals and medication.
Harris said the infirmary assures
confidentiality of all treatment. "Students
can expect the same confidentiality here that
they would expect from any other
physician," he said. "Student's records are
not available to anyone including
administrators and parents -without the
student's written permission."
Harris said a new infirmary should be
constructed within two or three years. The
building is still in the planning stages and has
not yet been given final approval by the
University's Board of Governors.
The new building should provide for a
larger staff and even better facilities, as well
as relieving some overcrowding in the
present facilities, he said.
