Health and counseling services
Health Services is primarily interested in the prevention of disease and the treatment of minor injuries and acute illnesses. The Institute maintains limited health care services, with a nurse and a physician who keep limited office hours on campus five days a week. A medical form sent to all entering students requests a thorough physical examination, history of immunizations and other background information. These records are kept on ﬁle in the Health Services office and are mandatory conditions of enrollment.
The Institute cannot assume responsibility for the regular treatment of a student's chronic condition present when the student enters the Institute; however, the Health Service will supervise the treatment and general health while the student is under the care of the family physician. Ordinarily, common medicines and drugs are furnished free. Certain services, such as X-ray examinations, special drugs and laboratory tests are not available. These can be obtained off campus via orders from the Health Service.
Rose-Hulman requires all students to show evidence of up to date immunizations, including a current TB skin test prior to enrollment. Failure to provide this information will prevent enrollment of next quarter's classes. Rose-Hulman also requires all students to either show evidence of health insurance coverage or to purchase such insurance through the Institute.
The Student Counseling Center provides individual counseling services to students faced with a broad range of issues, such as academic stress, homesickness, relationships, family difficulties, and career concerns, to name a few. Couples counseling and group counseling is also provided according to the needs of the students. Staff is available for consultation services to students, faculty, and staff and is willing to provide educational workshops as needed. Counseling services are confidential and are free to all students. Referrals are made on an as needed basis. The staff is comprised of master's level counselors who are currently enrolled as second-year doctoral Counseling Psychology students at Indiana State University. Supervision is provided to the counselors by a licensed Counseling Psychologist affiliated with Indiana State University.
