    Records Release

    One of our functions is to manage patient medical records during a student's tenure at the University.   Each record is necessary to provide quality healthcare to each patient.   Since medical records contain personal information, we adhere to all laws and guidelines which govern the use and disclosure of such information.

    A patient may receive a hard copy of his/her medical records or may have a copy forwarded to his or her personal healthcare provider by completing the necessary authorization form (available at Student Health Service).   A nominal fee may be charged.
