Be Smoke Free at UCSD

Read up to date information:
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.
Requirements for Incoming Students are listed here:
UCSD Student Health Services: MEDICAL EXCUSE POLICY
UC San Diego Student Health Medical Excuse Policy:
Last year, the UCSD Student Health Services had over 64,000 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).
How to Access Care Relative to Respiratory Symptoms/Coronavirus
UCSD Student Health Services recognizes that students are often unsure about when they should come in for care, and we encourage anyone with mild illness or injury to access our on-line health screens at https://wellness.ucsd.edu/studenthealth/resources/Pages/self-assessment-tools.aspx or to call Student Health at 858 534-3300 and ask to speak with a triage nurse.
We recommend any student that has traveled to Wuhan/China in the past 14 days and has fever and cough/difficulty breathing to call Student Healthat 858-534-3300 and ask to speak with a triage nurse. This would also apply to any symptomatic student who has come in contact with someone who has traveled to Wuhan.
After hours, a student can call 858-534-3300 and speak with an After Hours Advice Nurse or, if symptoms exist and you have traveled to Wuhan, go to a UC San Diego Medical Center Emergency Room.
