August 25, 1875 Section A Th Dslly Tr Hsst 9 Student health center B 8 Y x i V. by Merton Vance Staff Writer 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.

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.
