Student Health + Counseling Services

Health Services

University Health and Counseling Service (UHCS) is staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and registered nurses. A number of the physicians are affiliated with University Hospitals of Cleveland and with the CWRU School of Medicine.

Students are seen on an appointment basis only, except in case of emergency. UHS offers specialty clinics such as skin, dermatology, allergy and women's health. For consultation required beyond this, UHS usually refers to physicians and services available at University Hospitals of Cleveland or other outside providers. 

CIA students may visit Health Service free of charge, even if you have outside insurance. For more information about services and student health insurance, please visit the University Health Service's website.

Counseling Services

University Counseling Services (UCS) offers students help with their personal counseling and behavioral health needs, including individual, couples and group counseling, psychiatric medication management, stress management and recovery support. 

Generally a short-term (usually 3-12 visits), solution-focused counseling approach is offered, but on occasion, longer term care may be needed for which a referral to professionals in the Cleveland area will be offered. Offices are staffed with psychologists, social workers, and part-time consulting psychiatrists. Most services are provided without cost but some specialty services may require a fee.
