If you are traveling, do not have access to Student Health, or Student Health is closed, another option for non-life threatening symptoms is LiveHealth Online https://livehealthonline.com/. LiveHealth Online offers live telemedicine visits with a physician and is available 24/7. Students with UC SHIP can use the coupon code UCSDMEDICAL to get a LiveHealth Online visit at no charge. Students with other insurance should check with their insurance carrier about reimbursement/covered charges. Read more about LiveHealth.
If you are having a life threatening emergency, call 911. More emergency information here: https://wellness.ucsd.edu/studenthealth/emergency/Pages/default.aspx
On August 19, 2019, UCSD Student Health Services and CAPS will transition to a new electronic record system called Epic.
For our new UCSD students starting Fall 2019, PNC (the current SHS medical information system) will continue to be used for messaging for the TB and Immunization requirements. However, any specific medical questions you have for your primary care provider must now be sent through Epic's MyStudentChart.
Continuing students can access MyStudentChart now.
Incoming (Fall) students should be able to access MyStudentChart by 8/22/2019.
To access the new system, go to: https://mystudentchart.ucsd.edu and follow the instructions to activate your MyStudentChart account for SHS and CAPS. You simply need to select "SIGN IN WITH UCSD STUDENT AD LOGIN" to activate your account and gain access.
If you encounter problems, or wish to download the Mobile App, read this: https://wellness.ucsd.edu/studenthealth/Documents/EPIC_notice_08192019.pdf
Once logged into MyStudentChart, you can view your health information, communicate with your providers, request prescription refills, and manage appointments.
For assistance, call your SHS primary care provider's group. Group 1: 858-534-2918; Group 2: 858-822-5926; Groups 3 & 4: 858-534-2669.

UCSD Student Health Services: MEDICAL EXCUSE POLICY
Last year, the UCSD Student Health Services had over 50,000 patient encounters. This high utilization is expected to continue and may impact access to care unless some types of visits are limited. Many common illnesses and injuries do not require care by a medical professional. For example, sore throat, cold symptoms, or mild gastrointestinal illnesses are often best cared for by rest and self-care at home. Visiting Student Health Services solely to obtain documentation of illness uses valuable appointment time, and potentially exposes others to their illnesses.
Therefore, in an effort to maintain sufficient availability of Same Day appointments and Urgent Care visits for those whose illness requires medical intervention, we will no longer provide “medical excuses” except under extreme circumstances (i.e.,severe, prolonged illness that necessitates dropping a class or obtaining specific accommodations for class/lab participation, test taking or make-up).
UCSD Student Health Services recognizes that students are often unsure about when they should come in for care. We encourage anyone with mild illness or injury to access our online health screens or to call Urgent Care at 858-534-3302 and speak with a triage nurse for assistance in determining how to best care for their illness or injury.
We appreciate your cooperation and concern for the well-being of our students.
