Primary and Urgent Care

Student Health Center : Texas State University

The Student Health Center is staffed by several full-time licensed physicians and certified nurse practitioners to keep you healthy while you are attending Texas State University. We offer medical care similar to what you would receive from your family physician. 

Primary care is patient-focused general care for adults, children and families. A person’s primary care provider is typically the first one a patient turns to for diagnosing and treating common illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers, aches, and pains, as well as minor injuries. In additional to a physical examination, evaluation may involve blood work and other diagnostic tests.

Primary care providers also educate patients on how to prevent and spot diseases as part of routine check-ups. During these wellness visits, the provider may update immunizations and review medications a patient uses, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Primary care providers also help people manage chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
