Health Services: Confidentiality

How confidential is my visit?

University Health Services assures that all health care providers, supporting health services staff, and student volunteers/students working in UHS, adhere to established ethical principles and codes of professional practice including patient confidentiality, privacy, dignity, and informed consent.

As a patient of UHS, you also have certain rights and responsibilities. We encourage you to review these and to ask questions if you have any concerns.

All medical records are held in the same strict confidence as in other health care settings.

Although this high degree of confidentiality may be a concern to parents seeking information, medical information is released only with the student's written consent, or by a court-ordered subpoena.
