• Student Health Services

    The University of West Alabama Student Health Service program is operated through an agreement with Anderson's Family Medical Center. Dr. James Robinson's office is located adjacent to the UWA campus, on Wise Circle, and is accessible from Hwy 11 North. Students may go to the clinic on a drop-in basis or call for an appointment at (205) 652-5778. As the University physician, Dr. Robinson sees students regarding routine matters.

    After normal office hours, and in case of emergencies, students needing medical attention should go to Hill Hospital in York. The University will not be able to provide transportation to the hospital, but will arrange for ambulance service if requested. The student will be responsible for the expense for all hospital services and ambulance transportation, if applicable. On-campus residents should contact a resident assistant or their hall director if there is a medical emergency. The Housing staff member will contact campus police, and the campus police office will determine whether an ambulance should be called.

    A student who has family health insurance coverage should be prepared to provide documentation of such coverage in the event he/she requires medical attention other than that provided by the University.

    Students with musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries may use the services provided by the UWA Athletic Training and Sports Medicine Center located in the Homer Field House. See this section under Facilities and Services in the General Information portion of the Catalogue.
