A physician from UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is on campus each Thursday afternoon. Appointments may be made and walk-ins accommodated as possible. A $10 fee is automatically billed to the student’s account.

If you have had a respiratory illness, you may return to work or class when you are fever-free for at least 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medications and if your symptoms are improving.  Limit close contact with others during illness and practice good hygiene by washing hands and covering coughs and sneezes.

Facial Coverings: Facial coverings both indoors and outdoors are optional. Masks are available at Dispatch and Health Services (Frances Warde Hall 4th floor).

Carlow takes the confidentiality of medical and health records seriously. Confidentiality is mandated by law, and we cannot release any student medical information to parents of nonminor children unless the student gives permission for us to do so in writing. However, in case of a medical emergency where there is an issue of life or death, we will contact family immediately.
