Health and Wellness



Mount Sinai Beth Israel administers the Student Health Program and offers care to graduate and undergraduate students for episodic illnesses and minor injuries on campus, at no cost to the student. The health clinic is open for walk-in care during regular business hours. Medical care is provided by a physician assistant or nurse practitioner under the supervision of a physician. Should a student require emergency department services, specialist physician services or diagnostic testing, he or she will be referred through the MSBI Student Health Services network of providers.

The Health Center staff reviews the health forms and immunization history of entering students to ensure compliance with New York State Public Health Law, which requires that all students have proof of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization history on file. Immunizations are available on campus for those in need. Please download the student health forms below:
