Patient Responsibilities

The Student Health Center staff cares for the well-being of all Tulane students. We believe that to be effective the effort must be a partnership with the patient and the health care team working together. You will be expected, within the limits of your abilities, to share in the responsibility for your health care. 

  1. You have the responsibility to keep appointments or to telephone the Student Health Center when you cannot keep a scheduled appointment.

  2. You have the responsibility to provide information about past illnesses, hospitalizations, medications, and other matters relating to your health to the best of your ability.

  3. You have the responsibility to cooperate with all Student Health Center personnel caring for you, and to ask questions if you do not understand any information given you.

  4. You have the responsibility to be respectful of others, of other people's property, and that of the Student Health Center.

  5. You have the responsibility to abide by Student Health Center rules and regulations.

  6. You have the responsibility to act in consideration of the health of others.
