We are a team of qualified professionals providing high quality health care to students of the University of Otago.
Student Health Services (SHS) is centrally located on campus in a purpose built facility. We have approximately 50 staff, comprising nurses, general practitioners, mental health & well-being clinicians and administrative staff.
Student Health is not a member of a PHO, therefore we do not receive any capitation funding for the provision of your primary health care.
Students may choose to remain registered at their current GP practice/PHO and still attend Student Health.
