The Health & Counseling Centers are located in The Medical Clinic.
A wide range of services are available on campus including medical exams and physicals, common laboratory services, short-term prescriptions, influenza vaccinations, and wellness education. There are instances when a student may be referred to an outside medical facility for further evaluation. Appointments are strongly recommended. In order to maintain proper social distancing and allow adequate time between appointments for cleaning, we ask that you please schedule an appointment to be seen by the Nurse Practitioner or Licensed Counselor. Walk-ins will not be permitted at this time. Schedule an appointment here. All appointments will be conducted via telemedicine with the HIPAA-compliant platform, Doxy.me. Students will receive an invitation to join the telemedicine visit via email before their scheduled appointment. We thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to working with you!

Prescriptions & Medications
The medical provider of the Adrian College Student Health Clinic, Emily Kist, is a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. This qualifies her to provide office medical care and exams and to prescribe medications as needed. Students may choose to pick up prescribed medications from pharmacies surrounding campus.
The Health Center is also here “just to talk” to students about any issue having an impact on their health and wellbeing. We are able to assist students with timely referrals t to other campus or community medical and/or mental health programs or services.
Students seeking counseling services are encouraged to schedule an initial appointment with Dr. Emily Kist, DNP, FNP-C. Appointments with Dr. Kist can be a one-time occurrence or reoccurring as the student and Dr. Kist see fit. Referrals to off-campus therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists can be provided through the Health Center should the student require or request.
Students attending Adrian College are responsible for their own health insurance coverage, as the College does not provide health insurance coverage for students. It is strongly recommended that students verify they have coverage through their parent/guardian insurance plan or purchase such coverage directly with an insurance carrier. Students may visit sis-inc.biz for available health insurance options.
Students must be seen in the Health Center to be referred for an appointment to a local physician. Students using their family insurance for coverage must be aware of their coverage in Lenawee County, Michigan. Please check with your insurance company for a list of physicians in Lenawee County who will accept your insurance.
Also, remember that unless a student has access to a vehicle, physicians in neighboring towns may be inaccessible to them. Bixby Hospital and Herrick Memorial Hospitals are not considered providers for anything except emergency care. Students covered under the Adrian College Health and Accident Plan underwritten by Hylant, are accepted by area providers.
All Health Services records are confidential. Safeguarding students’ medical information is not only a legal requirement, but also an important ethical obligation. No one will have access to health records without the written consent of the student, including their parents/guardians, if the student is of legal age (18 years or older). Information from a student’s health record will not be disclosed except in cases of extreme urgency where there is an obvious “need to know”, such as in cases of injury to themselves or others or as required by law. Students have the right to access their personally identifiable medical files and have the right to correct or remove any inaccurate, irrelevant or out-of-date information.
